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!

With the 20th anniversary of the murder of Nicole Brown Simpson and Ron Goldman coming up, Ron’s dad Fred Goldman is speaking out about his son’s murder.
In an interview, the 73-year-old explains that O.J. Simpson, who he simply calls “the killer,” got off on the murders because of a suitcase of evidence that Robert Kardashian carried around!
He also claims that Rob was there on the night when Nicole and Ron were killed!

Ew! This is beyond sick — so we kind of hope this is a bunch of b.s. — but O.J. Simpson is reportedly trying to auction off the knife he used to kill Nicole Brown Simpson and Ron Goldman!
The murder weapon was never found and ended up being a key component of his acquittal, so it's worth about about $5 million to somebody out there.
A source says the convict — currently serving time for armed robbery — wants to keep the deal on the down low and explained:

Well, sorta new.
Texas private investigator James Dear claims that O.J's son, Jason Simpson was the killer of Nicole Brown Simpson and Ron Goldman, not the former football star.
In his new book (yep, another book), O.J. Is Innocent And I Can Prove It (catchy title), Dear claims he has proof that Jason was the real murderer.
Dear has tried to accuse Jason of killing his stepmother and her friend before in a documentary that nobody watched.
Now, he's trying a book.
The gumshoe says he's spent six years on the case and says O.J. was at the scene, but not until AFTER the murders.
LAPD detectives determined Jason's alibi was legit but it seems like Dear begs to differ.
We'll see if anything comes out of these claims. Our guess?? Probably not.

The suit that O.J. Simpson wore when he was found not guilty of murdering both his ex-wife Nicole Brown Simpson and Ron Goldman is being donated to the Smithsonian.
All lawyers involved in the case agreed the suit, tie and white shirt worn by Simpson, who is ironically in jail, will be donated to the museum as a gift "In memory of Ronald Lyle Goldman and Nicole Brown Simpson".
If the Smithsonian declines the gift, they'll have to find it another home.
