Is This the Interview That Finally Makes O.J. Simpson Confess?

The notorious prankster sat down with the disgraced NFL running back — and things got awkward fast. 

By Jenny Berg

Though he wasn't formally charged with the 1994 murders of Nicole Brown Simpson and Ron Goldman, it's widely speculated that O.J. Simpson is, in fact, guilty for the heinous crimes. So, is Sacha Baron Cohen clever enough to get a confession out of the disgraced N.F.L. running back, more than 20 years later? TV audiences had a chance to see for themselves in the latest episode of Baron Cohen's new show, Who Is America? 

Quick refresher: In the show, the prankster disguises himself and interviews figures ranging from political pundits to Bravolebrities. In the episode in question, Baron Cohen pretended to be an Italian bon vivant, and interviewed Simpson in Las Vegas. In a conversation that Simpson allegedly did not know was being recorded, Baron Cohen claimed that he had a wealthy client who would pay top dollar to hear "the truth" about "that night" with "the wife." (The comic was, of course, referring to the murder of Nicole Brown Simpson.) 

However, this wasn't enough to make Simpson confess. The alleged murderer responded: "Well, first of all, she wasn’t my wife. We had been divorced. And second of all, I didn’t do it. … I didn’t ‘get away’ with nothing." 

Simpson is currently on parole in Las Vegas, and will remain on parole until September of 2022.
