The series follows the 1995 “Trial of the Century,” when O.J. Simpson was tried for double homicide.
Former Anger Management star Selma Blair, who plays Kris Jenner, rocked a short-cropped ‘do Thursday on the Hollywood set, and looked like a dead ringer for the reality star 20 years ago.
Kris Jenner, formerly Kris Kardashian, was married to the late lawyer Robert Kardashian, a member of Simpson’s “Dream Team” defense counsel. Friends star David Schwimmer plays Robert Kardashian in the upcoming series.
A source tells ET that filming took place Thursday, and first up on the production schedule was a funeral scene. Filming took place at the Hollywood Forever Cemetery in Los Angeles, and took place throughout the day despite rain and uncooperative weather.
Rounding out the show’s cast is Cuba Gooding Jr., who stars as the infamous O.J. Simpson, American Horror Story alum Sarah Paulson plays prosecuting attorney Marcia Clark and Furious 7’s Jordana Brewster is Denise Brown, sister of murder victim Nicole Brown.
American Crime Story: The People vs O.J. Simpson will air on FX in 2016.
While there is a lot of anticipation regarding Ryan Murphy’s forth coming true crime drama, not everyone shares that excitement. Speaking with ET recently, Kris Jenner admitted to having “mixed feelings” about the series.
