New 'American Crime Story' Trailer Shows O.J. Simpson Contemplating Suicide in Kim Kardashian's Bedroom
By Sophie Schillaci
The latest trailer for The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story is here, and it's incredibly juicy.
Sarah Paulson weeps as prosecutor Marcia Clark, John Travolta pitches a deal as Robert Shapiro, and David Schwimmer stops a suicide attempt as O.J. Simpson's friend and lawyer, Robert Kardashian. Watch below!
Earlier this year, a report from ABC News' 20/20 claimed that the former football pro had once contemplated suicide in the childhood bedroom of Kim Kardashian. As it turns out, the alleged moment will play out on screen in the new FX series.
In the new teaser, we see Cuba Gooding Jr. as Simpson, reduced to tears while holding a gun. Schwimmer's character barges in the room, declaring, "Do not kill yourself in Kimmy's bedroom! Give me the gun."
At the project's first industry screening last week, show producers revealed that the scene was filmed inside the actual home that the Kardashian family owned in Encino at the time of the 1995 trial. Set designers even looked at old photos of Kim's bedroom in order to match the decor -- including posters of Jonathan Taylor Thomas on the walls -- to the real-life space.
The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story debuts Feb. 2 on FX, also starring Selma Blair as Kris Jenner and Connie Britton as Faye Resnick.
