Selma Blair Will Play Young Kris Jenner in ‘American Crime Story’
In case you need a refresher on your mid '90s true celebrity crime trials: Jenner was previously married to Simpson’s attorney, Robert Kardashian, who will be played by Friends actor David Schwimmer. Kris was also friends with Simpson’s late wife, Nicole Brown Simpson.
Cuba Gooding Jr. will portray O.J. Other key figures in Simpson’s legal team, Robert Shapiro and Johnnie Cochran, will be portrayed by John Travolta and Courtney B. Vance, respectively. Likewise, Sarah Paulson will portray prosecutor Marcia Clark, Connie Britton will appear as Faye Resnick and Jordana Brewster as Brown Simpson’s sister, Denise Brown. American Crime Story is expected to premiere later this year.
A new preview clip for Keeping Up With the Kardashians revealed Jenner’s emotional reflection on her second husband Bruce's transition as a transgender woman, which was officially announced in an interview with Diane Sawyer last month. The two were married for more than 20 years before finalizing their divorce earlier this year.
“I have these memories of this life,” Jenner said of her second marriage while speaking to her daughter, Kim Kardashian. “And I feel sometimes like it didn’t exist.”
The two-part episode is slated for a May 17 and 18 premiere on E!.
