And with the case now decades in the past, O.J.'s former defense attorney Robert Shapiro finally revealed what his client whispered in his ear after the jury found him not guilty.
In an interview with Megyn Kelly on Tuesday, the 73-year-old discussed the highly-publicized 1995 double murder trial — including the former NFL star's first words to him after being acquitted in the deaths of his ex-wife Nicole Brown and her friend Ron Goldman.
Shapiro, who was played by John Travolta in the FX crime drama, remembered Simpson whispered in his ear:
One of the most captivating shows of the year has already come and gone as The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story aired its big finale Tuesday night — and it certainly was dramatic!
Sure, we already knew what was going to happen, but that doesn't mean there wasn't any tension as the verdict was finally revealed in the trial of the century! *SPOILERS AHEAD*
The episode started with Johnnie Cochran (Courtney B. Vance) teasing everyone — including O.J. Simpson — and making us believe that the athlete was
Everyone's favorite crime drama show The People v. OJ Simpson: American Crime Story is about to come to an end tonight and to help promote the finale, John Travolta stopped by Ellen DeGeneres' talk show!
Not only did the actor dish about the hit FX show, but he also chatting about his daughter Ella Travolta's dating life, saying he doesn't interfere — but her mom, Kelly Preston, knows everything! LOLz!
Aside from American Crime Story and his daughter's dating life, Ella also learned to parallel park, AND John played 5 Second Rule with Ellen for charity!
Ch-ch-check out John dish about his daughter (below)!
That's why Fox brought us The Passion Sunday night — a contemporary retelling of the Passion of Jesus Christ story, just with more popular music.
The two-hour live show was narrated by Tyler Perry and starred Jencarlos Canela as Jesus, Trisha Yearwood as Mary, Chris Daughtry as Judas, Prince Royce as Peter, and Seal in his acting debut as Pontius Pilate.
With the show being both musical and faith based, several people took to Twitter to share their reactions to the best of the best moments (below):
What's glove got to do with it?
That was the question on everyone's mind during Tuesday night's The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story when a pair of gloves changed everything in the calculated trial.
As the trial continued, viewers were able to see how professors at Harvard Law were using it to teach their classes — one professor even faxed a suggestion to lead defense attorney Johnnie Cochran (Courtney B. Vance) to bring up drug cartels and their typically brutal murders to the court.
Jonnie took this cue and acted out having his throat sliced, giving the audience entertainment and a new conspiracy theory to eat up — that Nicole Brown and Ron Goldman could have been murdered because Faye Resnick (Connie Britton) owed a cartel money!
We can't remember the last time we saw a chase sequence this good on television!
One of the most infamous parts of the O.J. Simpson saga happened before the trial even started — his White Bronco chase with the LAPD.
The People v O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story executed the police chase and subsequent standoff perfectly with an incredible sequence — and a riveting performance by Cuba Gooding Jr. – that took over Tuesday's entire episode.
The FX mini-series opened right after Simpson fled police, who had come to arrest him for the murder of ex-wife Nicole Brown Simpson and her friend Ronald Goldman.
At Simpson's home, Robert Kardashian (David Schwimmer) shows O.J.'s other lawyer Robert Shapiro (John Travolta) that the former athlete left a suicide note — with a "happy face."
As news stations report that a statewide manhunt is underway, the public learns
With murder, mystery, mayhem, and just a dash of Kardashians — The People v O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story started off with the perfect premiere episode!
While most of us know the conclusion to this story twenty years after the verdict was read, the FX drama carefully pieced together the case from the beginning while giving us a look inside the lives of all the major players involved.
Over on Bundy Drive, a man walking his dog comes across Nicole Brown Simpson's white Akita, who leads them to the bodies. The police soon
