OMG, you guys. Forget Star Wars (sorry, hubs) but this is the real major event of the year!!!
Christmas came earlier this year because the first trailer for FX’s “American Crime Story: The People vs. O.J. Simpson” has been released and let me tell you people, it is JUICY. This is the television event of the year, and I’m not even kidding you that I have the film’s premiere date of February 2nd already saved on my iCal.
I’m sure no matter what age you were at the time, everyone remembers watching the White Bronco freeway chase of 1994. Almost two decades later and we finally have a made-for-television series that can rival the best telenovelas out there with a stellar cast that gives us as before-and-after Marcia Clark (remember her makeover?). And we’ve got Connie Britton as Faye Resnick and who is the only person who could pull off wearing a lipstick color that solely existed in the early 90s. This is television gold, people!
Cuba Gooding Jr. stars as O.J. Simpson, and John Travolta plays defense attorney Robert Shapiro. The cast also includes David Schwimmer (Ross Gellar!) as defense attorney Robert Kardashian, Sarah Paulson as prosecutor Marcia Clark, Selma Blair as Kris Jenner, Courtney B. Vance as defense attorney Johnnie Cochran, and Bruce Greenwood as Los Angeles County District Attorney Gil Garrett. It’s still unknown if we’ll see a 14-year-old Kim Kardashian here, but anything can happen, my dear friends.
The limited series is executive produced by Murphy, along with Nina Jacobson, Brad Simpson, Scott Alexander, Larry Karaszewski and Brad Falchuk. It is produced by Fox 21 Television Studios and FX Productions.
Also, Sara Paulson totally deserves an Emmy nomination for this. In fact, the whole cast does. Check out the video clip below and tell us, are you just as excited for this movie as we are?!?
