“You want to make this a Black thing? Well I’m not Black; I’m O.J.”
We all saw the car chase. We all heard Johnnie Cochran say “If the glove doesn’t fit, you must acquit.”
Now the story of one the most talked about trials within the last 20 years is coming to the small screen and it’s bound to have us all glued to the TV.
The first full-length trailer for the upcoming FX series, American Crime Story: The People v. O.J. Simpson, as seen on Variety, details the former football phenom on trial for the murder of his ex-wife Nicole Brown Simpson.
Bringing the court case of the century to life is Cuba Gooding Jr. as the title character and Courtney B. Vance stars as his quotable attorney, the late Johnnie Cochran.
Rounding out the cast includes Selma Blair, David Schwimmer, John Travolta and Sarah Paulson as prosecutor Marcia Clark.
The trailer teases that “the trial wasn’t the whole story” but promises that first season of the series is devoted to telling the entire truth and nothing but the truth.
Will you be tuning it when American Crime Story premieres February 2 at 10 p.m.?
