The new series, from American Horror Story's Ryan Murphy will first feature the O.J. case, and we already know that Cuba Gooding Jr. will be playing Simpson, but now we have another key character.
Schwimmer will be playing the part of Rob Kardashian Sr., the father of the famous Kardashian girls. This 10-episode series seeks to look at the case from a different angle. The press release said:
"The miniseries takes a look at the O.J. Simpson trial told from the perspective of the lawyers that explores the chaotic behind-the-scenes dealings and maneuvering on both sides of the court… [It will show] a combination of prosecution confidence, defense wiliness, and the LAPD's history with the city's African-American community gave a jury what it needed: reasonable doubt."
In addition to these two stars, Sarah Paulson will play prosecutor Marcia Clark.
This sounds like a really promising first season! We're excited to see how it turns out!
