Jessica Lange: OJ Simpson
Sarah Paulsen: Nicole Brown Simpson
Evan Peters: Ron Goldman
Denis O'Hare: Robert Shapiro
Frances Conroy: Johnnie Cochran
So is this a documentary? Or is this a drama with actors playing the key roles?
So Murder in the First but with OJ?
And sadomasochism, presumably.
OJ will wear a black rubber suit while murdering his wife.
The guys who wrote Ed Wood are writing? Not Murphy?! It might actually be good!
They gotta do a Charles Manson season
Cuba Gooding Jr. is O.J., Sarah Paulson is Marcia Clark
This seems like Cuba is trying to kickstart his career again by doing what Matthew mcconaughey did in True Detective.
Hope he brings his A Game.
This is one Ryan Murphy show I'm actually interested in.
With him reusing cast members, I wonder what this means about their availability for AHS.
If losing some of the more frequent cast members means we get some new faces in the mix, I'm fine with it. I like the idea of actors playing different characters year to year, but fresh blood can be a good thing. If Lange and Paulson and Roberts are out, I'm excited to see who they bring into the fold in season 5.
I am surprised that he hasnt announced any of his Glee actors for any of his new shows yet.
Probably because Glee is dead to him.
Color me interested.
Glad to see Cuba getting a good role (hopefully)
I still think they shouldve replaced Terrance Howard with him in the subsequent Iron Man films. But I digress.
This sounds really good. I'll be tuning in. Is each season going to be based on a real life crime?
I never followed Glee but I always wonder what happened to it. I remember the first season, and maybe the 2nd, I always saw people posting so many statuses/tweets about it.
Now I hear nothing. I thought it was cancelled until I heard this upcoming season is the final one
Im done with AHS after this season, they have failed to ever have a satisfying season. But maybe I'll give this one a chance.
David Schwimmer is Robert Kardashian
This sounds interesting. FX rarely lets me down.
John Travolta is going on the defensive.
The Pulp Fiction star is joining the cast of FX’s upcoming miniseries American Crime Story: The People v. O.J. Simpson, where he’ll play defense attorney Robert Shapiro.
Though he has guested on such shows as Kirstie, this marks Travolta’s first major TV role since walking away from Welcome Back, Kotter in 1979.
Travolta will also serve as a producer of the 10-part miniseries.
American Crime Story, from American Horror Story creator Ryan Murphy, got a straight-to-series order in October — with a 10-episode first season focusing on the murder trial of NFL star Simpson, who was accused and ultimately acquitted of killing his wife Nicole Brown Simpson.
Travolta will star alongside Oscar winner Cuba Gooding Jr. as Simpson, Sarah Paulson as prosecutor Marcia Clark and David Schwimmer as OJ pal-turned-defense attorney Robert Kardashian — who along with Shapiro was a key part of Simpson’s legal “dream team.”
The story will be based on Jeffrey Toobin’s book The Run of His Life: The People V. O.J. Simpson, which is told from the lawyers’ perspective and details the legal maneuvering involved in the famous case.
American Crime Story: The People v. O.J. Simpson is being written by Golden Globe-winning producers Scott Alexander and Larry Karaszewski (Big Eyes, The People v. Larry Flynt); Murphy will direct the first episode.
Wow. Wasn't expecting that. This will be quite something.
There are rumors of Shannen Doherty and Charisma Carpenter joining the cast. I hope it's true, though I'm not getting my hopes up high.
