Cuba Gooding, Jr. Is Playing O.J. Simpson

Ryan Murphy created the amazingly awesome (until it went off the rails)  Nip/Tuck. Then he created the horrible, preachy, self-masturbatory Glee. Then he created whatever the hell the weird American Horror Story is supposed to be. So if we’re going by that track record, his new show American Crime Story: The People v. O.J. Simpson is gonna suck pretty bad. But is has Cuba Gooding, Jr. as O.J. Simpson. Bruh.

Cuba Gooding Jr. is your O.J. Simpson. The Oscar winner will play the jailed footballer in FX’s American Crime Story: The People v. O.J. SimpsonAmerican Horror Story‘s Sarah Paulson will play prosecutor Marcia Clark. The first season of the anthology series will look at the Simpson trial from the perspectives of the lawyers involved.

Eh, this kinda seems lie it’s gonna be network knock off/mash up of True Detective and Law & Order with Cuba Gooding, Jr. just kinda sitting in the back trying to put on a glove. But I’m not understanding why Ryan Murphy didn’t cast Jessica Lange as O.J. Simpson and Marcia Clark. Basically people should just cast Jessica Lange as everything.
