Cuba Gooding Jr. To Play O.J. Simpson

Cuba Gooding Jr. and Sarah Paulson have scored the lead roles in the first season of FX’s “American Crime Story” anthology miniseries.

This instalment, ‘The People v. O.J. Simpson’, deals with the famous trial and is told from the perspective of the lawyers. It will explore the chaotic behind-the-scenes dealings and maneuvering on both sides of the court.

“American Horror Story” producer Ryan Murphy is behind the crime-centric series which, like ‘Horror’, will consist of entirely self-contained seasons.

Gooding Jr. will play the football star-turned-murder defendant, Paulson will portray the case’s prosecutor Marcia Clark.
