There aren’t many crime stories in recent American history that are more well known than the 1994 O.J. Simpson case — but even though Cuba Gooding Jr. is playing the former football star in FX’s upcoming “American Crime Story,” he said he isn’t feeling the pressure quite yet.
“I probably will when it’s all said and done for people to watch it, but when I’m in it, I’m in it,” Gooding Jr. told Variety at the premiere of “American Horror Story: Hotel” Saturday night. “It’s a character. You have to be the character and be confident. But yeah, reflecting on it, I will be hoping that the intent of what Ryan Murphy wanted to create in the story comes through. And I think it will, because no one pays attention to detail like this guy.”
Gooding Jr. said it was executive producer Murphy, also known for “American Horror Story, »

David Schwimmer has been set to star in Channel 4 sitcom Morning Has Broken.

Julia Davis stars as Sinclair and also co-writes alongside Nick Mohammed. Gary Reich’s Brown Eyed Boy will produce the show, in… »
Every year we bemoan the Emmy Awards for snubbing some of our favorite TV stars. This year alone we saw TV academy voters turn their backs on past champs Jim Parsons ("The Big Bang Theory") and Julianna Margulies ("The Good Wife"). But what of those performers who never ever got a chance to attend the ceremony as nominees? I am thinking of the likes of Courteney Cox; she was meant to be the star of "Friends" but never even got nominated in its 10-year run.Both of the other gals on the show won Emmys -- Lisa Kudrow on the third of her six bids and Jennifer Aniston up in lead for season eight. And all three fellows (Matt LeBlanc, Matthew Perry, David Schwimmer) contended at least once. We asked our feisty forum posters, many of whom are Hollywood insiders, about those Emmy oversights that still pain them years later. »
Schwimmer will play an American producer brought in to try to save a floundering breakfast-time show, “Good Morning… with Gail Sinclair.” The role of the show’s host, the “Queen of Daytime,” is taken by Julia Davis, who co-wrote “Morning Has Broken” with Nick Mohammed. Mohammed will play one of Sinclair’s fellow anchors.
After eight years of high ratings and winning awards, things begin to go wrong for Sinclair when the program loses viewers and tensions break out within the production team.
Davis, whose credits include “Nighty Night,” said she is “looking forward to experimenting with friends whose work I love. »

Following the first cast photos released back in May, FX Networks has released the first teaser trailer for American Crime Story, debuting this February. While a specific premiere date has not been given, the series may likely debut after American Horror Story's Season 5 run ends, since both shows were created by Ryan Murphy. The trailer doesn't show any footage, but we do get some brief snippets of dialogue from John Travolta as defense attorney Robert Shapiro, Sarah Paulson as prosecutor Marcia Clark, Courtney B. Vance as defense lawyer Johnnie Cochran and Cuba Gooding Jr. as the defendant O.J. Simpson.
Based on the book The Run of His Life: The People V. O.J. Simpson by Jeffrey Toobin, the limited series is a look at the O.J. Simpson trial told from the perspective of the lawyers. It explores the chaotic behind-the-scenes dealings and maneuvering on both sides of the court, and how a combination of prosecution overconfidence, »
Will the glove fit Cuba Gooding Jr.?
FX released the first teaser for Ryan Murphy's upcoming "American Crime Story: The People v. O.J. Simpson," which tells the story of the infamous trial that spanned 1994 and 1995. The teaser is extremely brief (just 15 seconds) and doesn't show any footage. But you can hear some of the A-list cast speaking as their characters: Gooding as Simpson, John Travolta as defense attorney Robert Shapiro, Sarah Paulson as Marcia Clark, and Courtney B. Vance as Johnnie Cochran.
"American Crime Story" will be much like Murphy's other, fictional series, "American Horror Story" - it is an anthology which will tell a different true crime tale every season. Certainly, Simpson's trial is an attention-grabbing way to start, and Murphy has gathered an astonishing number of stars on the cast, including Connie Britton, David Schwimmer, Selma Blair, Nathan Lane, and Malcolm Jamal-Warner.

Twenty years on, NBC's iconic 1990s sitcom "Friends" is still very popular and has found whole new life on streaming services.
As a show it was famous for four of its six key characters becoming two couples during its run - Ross (David Schwimmer) and Rachel (Jennifer Aniston) along with Chandler (Matthew Perry) and Monica (Courteney Cox). The other two though - Joey (Matt LeBlanc) and Phoebe (Lisa Kudrow) never coupled up.
This was kind of fitting for their characters who were less relationship-centric and much more open to casual sex and romantic flings than the other four. Yet in a new interview with People, LeBlanc said that toward's the show's end they came up with the idea that Joey and Phoebe had been 'friends with benefits' throughout the show's entire run:
"Towards the end we actually pitched the idea that Joey and Phoebe had been having casual sex the entire time. »
