Nicole Brown Simpson's Family Is Concerned About American Crime Story… But Cuba Gooding, Jr. Has THIS To Say About The Show

Read his response HERE!

While we're super excited for next week's premiere of The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story, not everyone is as thrilled about the series' start.

For one thing, the families of Nicole Brown Simpson and Ron Goldman — whom O.J. Simpson was famously acquitted of murdering back in 1994 — are afraid that the FX show won't respect their lost loved ones, especially considering the victims won't even be portrayed.

Nicole's sister Tanya Brown recently spoke to People about her concerns, saying:

"They didn't take the families into consideration. Who is defending my sister?"

Ron's father, Fred Goldman, also told the publication that he was worried the upcoming drama would affect the public's opinion of the actual events, saying:

"You are going to have people basing their beliefs on a movie. Last time I checked, we don't rely on movies for facts."

We can't even imagine what they've been through, so obviously their concerns are completely valid.

With that said, Cuba Gooding, Jr., who plays the scandalized sports star in the limited series, told E! News that his intentions for taking the part were purely artistic, saying:

Cuba Gooding Jr. Reenacts The Historic O.J. Simpson White Bronco Car Chase For American Crime Story!

no title

21 years ago, O.J. Simpson famously led Los Angeles police officers on a highly-televised, low-speed chase up the 405 freeway in a white Ford Bronco.

On Wednesday, Cuba Gooding Jr. reenacted the high profile chase in Beverly Hills for Ryan Murphy's upcoming FX series American Crime Story!

The 46-year-old actor was spotting filming in a white Bronco, pretty much identical to the vehicle that Simpson rode in on June 17, 1994.

On that day, the former athlete was expected to turn himself in to authorities on charges of murdering his ex-wife Nicole Brown Simpson and her friend Ron Goldman.

But Simpson didn't turn himself in and was spotted by police later that evening heading north on the Los Angeles interstate — driven by his friend Al Cowlings, played in the series by Malcolm-Jamal Warner.

This is one scene we definitely CANNOT wait to see when American Crime Story: The People vs. OJ Simpson airs next year!
