This February fans will get an inside look at the infamous O.J. Simpson case when American Crime Story: The People v. O.J. Simpson premieres on FX. The true-crime mini series, from the mind of Ryan Murphy, will chronicle the 1995 murder trial of the former football star for the death of his ex-wife Nicole Brown Simpson and her friend Ronald Goldman. It was a trial that held everyone's attention and Murphy's small-screen adaptation isn't short on star power. For the series, Murphy assembled an all-star cast, including Sarah Paulson as Marcia Clark, David Schwimmer as Robert Kardashian, John Travolta as Robert Shapiro, Courtney B. Vance as Johnnie Cochran, and Cuba Gooding, Jr. as O.J. Simpson. Did we forget to mention that Connie Britton will appear as Real Housewives of Beverly Hills pal Faye Resnick (who was also friends with Nicole prior to her death)?
With only a couple months until the premiere, we got Kyle Richards to weigh in on the casting.
“My first thought was I don’t understand it," Kyle told The Daily Dish at an event for Wags and Walks, an organization saving the lives of dogs, held at Kyle by Alene Too over the weekend. "She’s a good actress. She’s a good choice.” However, there was someone else, she thinks could have taken the part before Connie. "Sometimes people think Denise Richards looks like Faye so maybe she could have played it," Kyle revealed.
And while buzz surrounding the series is high, Kyle isn't sure that Faye will have it on her DVR. “I don’t think Faye wants to watch. It’s very painful for her," she said. "It will be too hard for her to watch but I am going to watch it for sure."-Reporting by Paul Zahn
