American Crime Story is easily one of FOX’s most highly-anticipated new series. The new Ryan Murphy anthology will tackle the trail of the century for its first outing. The casting alone has been incredible.
American Crime Story: The People V. O.J. Simpson features a star-studded cast which includes Cuba Gooding Jr. as the Juice, Sarah Paulson as Marcia Clarke, David Schwimmer as Robert Kardashian, John Travolta as Robert Shapiro, Courtney B. Vance as Johnnie Cochran, and Connie Britton as the morally-corrupt (RHOBH) Faye Resnick. Former Dallas star Jordana Brewster is the latest addition. Find out what role she’s playing below.
In an inspired piece of casting, Brewster has been tapped to play Denise Brown, the sister of Nicole Brown-Simpson. They actually do somewhat resemble each other. Another addition is Sons Of Anarchy actor Kenneth Choi. He’ll put on Judge Lance Ito’s robe for the FOX show.
Other key players left to be cast include co-prosecutor Christopher Darden, Nicole Brown, F. Lee Bailey, Mark Fuhrman and Kato Kaelin. Wouldn’t it be amazing if Kaelin actually played himself. I’m sure he’s hoping that happens.
