‘The People v. O.J. Simpson’ Recap: Recreating the Infamous ‘Run of His Life’

2 hours ago | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Spoiler alert: Do not read unless you’ve watched episode two of “People v. O.J. Simpson,” titled “The Run of His Life.”

Two moments from the O.J. Simpson saga stand out for those who remember it: the verdict and the Bronco chase. It’s been said that while the Bronco chase brought us together as a country, the verdict divided us.

Yet for a moment so seared into our collective consciousness, the episode — as directed by Ryan Murphy — effectively manages to find drama and suspense as it careens towards its inevitable conclusion.

The hour opens with Robert Kardashian (David Schwimmer) praying for his friend and now murder suspect, O.J. Simpson (Cuba Gooding, Jr.) — who’s Mia in a Bronco being driven by A.C. Cowlings (Malcolm-Jamal Warner). He left behind a suicide note, and Kardashian’s heartbroken, believing his friend to have done the unthinkable. As the first few hours pass without any word, »

Robert Kardashian is fool & hero both as 'People v. O.J.' does the Bronco chase

2 hours ago | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

A few thoughts on tonight's The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story episode coming up just as soon as I spell my last name for you... Would the O.J. trial have become a circus if not for the white Bronco chase? Probably, if only because the Juice was enormously famous (and, back then, beloved). But it was that bizarre low-speed chase that pushed the story from the tabloids to front pages everywhere. It was such a big deal that NBC, which was airing an NBA Finals contest between the Knicks and Rockets, actually went to a split-screen between the game and the chase, and it was hard to blame them — fans actually in Madison Square Garden were reportedly crowding around anyone who had a portable TV so they could keep track of what was happening on the L.A. freeways. The absurdity of that day (which, as »

David Schwimmer on Why He Wanted to Play Robert Kardashian in The People v. O.J. Simpson

2 hours ago | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Among other things, The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story reminds us of a time in American culture when the name Kardashian sounded foreign. The point is driven home in episode two, as the young Kardashian children watch TV reporters mispronounce their father’s name during a press conference. “Kardashian! Kardashian! Kardashian!” they chant from home. It’s a harmless embellishment designed to drive home the point: Things have changed. The press conference scene in and of itself was anything but humorous in real life. O.J. Simpson’s loyal friend, the late Robert Kardashian, somberly took to the cameras to read what he believed was Simpson’s suicide note, as Simpson and his friend A.C. Cowlings, drove up and down Los Angeles freeways in a white Ford Bronco. David Schwimmer, who plays Kardashian, says he was drawn to the project because it presents new insights into the people involved in the case. »

The People v. O.J. Simpson Recap: The Bronco Chase

2 hours ago | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

"Good for you, O.J. We're still in the game." So says Robert Shapiro after discovering, to his surprise, that his client has not killed himself and is currently leading the police on a slow-speed chase up and down a Los Angeles freeway. After reading what appeared to be his suicide note — signed with a deranged/whimsical smiley face in the O — Shapiro and Robert Kardashian both assumed O.J.'s disappearance was the prelude to his end.That certainly seems to be a real option for O.J., who is sitting in the back of the white Bronco with a gun to his head, effectively neutralizing any effort to pursue him more aggressively. As it happened on June 17, 1994, the rolling standoff paralyzed the entirety of L.A., cleared the freeway like a Hollywood set, and mesmerized Americans across the country, who watched it unfold for hours on television. Two decades later, »

Courteney Cox’s Fox Comedy Lands Official Pilot Order

3 hours ago | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Fox has ordered a pilot for Courteney Cox’s comedy series “Charity Case,” Variety has learned.

The “Friends” alum is set to star in the potential series, in addition to serving as an exec producer.

“Charity Case” stars Cox as Hailey, a woman who inherits her late billionaire husband’s charity, but quickly finds that changing the world is far less glamorous than she had imagined.

The single-cam, half hour comedy hails from writer Robert Padnick who will exec produce with Cox and James Griffiths who is attached to direct. 20th Century Fox Television and ABC Studios will produce.

“Charity Case” was put into development at Fox at the start of pilot season in mid-January — way past the typical development cycle. With Cox’s star power, insiders told Variety the project was always said to land a pilot order and was put on the fast track to do so. Should the comedy go to series, »

Kris Jenner Remembers O.J. Simpson's ''Obsession'' With Nicole Brown, How His Wife Was ''Living in Fear'' Before Her Death

5 hours ago | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

With the incredibly popular FX series American Crime Story: The People v. O.J. Simpson, we had to look back at Kris Jenner's perspective on the trial and the "signs" that she says may have pointed to O.J. Simpson's involvement in Nicole Brown's 1994 death. During an interview with E! in 2009, the reality star momager opened up about situations prior to Brown's murder, revealing things we'd never known before—like Simpson's obsession with his wife and the fact that she had been "living in fear" before her death. "He was in love with her the minute  he laid eyes on her," Kris remembered of the day Simpson met Brown. "I remember Robert Kardashian getting that »

These Trading Cards Tell You Everything You Need to Know About O.J. Simpson Mania

8 February 2016 10:49 AM, PST | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Breaking: The first half of 2016 will henceforth always be known as “O.J.” Seriously, we’re in a moment. Through June, it will be nearly impossible to keep O.J. Simpson (and the murder, and his days as an athlete, and his rise to Hollywood stardom, and the conspiracies, and the Bronco, and the Kardashians) far from mind. The immediate reason for this: The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story, the FX mini-series that debuted on February 2 to considerable acclaim. Beyond the subject matter, the original hype was largely due to producer-director Ryan Murphy and his star-studded cast. In the first episode alone, you meet Cuba Gooding Jr., acting almost too naturally as broken man O.J. Simpson; Courtney B. Vance as a pitch-perfect Johnnie Cochran; Sarah Paulson as the chain-smoking Marcia Clark; John Travolta as the comically incompetent Robert Shapiro; and, of course, His Holiness David Schwimmer as Robert Kardashian. »

Kanye Says Father-in-Law Robert Kardashian Is Helping Him Finish His Album From Heaven, and Who Are We to Tell Him Any Different?

5 February 2016 8:45 AM, PST | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Look. Hey. You know what. Who’s to say what is or isn’t possible from the nether realm, you know? Certainly not Kanye, who explained the role his late father-in-law has played in getting Waves/Swish/So Help Me God finished. "I'm only doing one percent, 2 percent of the work, and God is doing the rest of the work,” West said during his interview with Real 92.3’s Big Boy, which you can listen to below. “My mom … had Teddy Riley change his flight and come back to the studio. Robert Kardashian is making sure that all the deals is getting done. He's still doing deals for controversial black people from up in heaven." Kanye is the best. Hopefully there isn’t Twitter in the afterlife, or else he and Mr. Kardashian must have had some seriously uncomfortable conversations this week. Haha, just kidding. There is no way in God »

3 February 2016 1:05 PM, PST | TMZ | See recent TMZ news »

The new O.J. Simpson series is awesome, but there's a Kardashian-related story line that is just not true ... TMZ has learned.  O.J. Simpson did Not threaten suicide with a loaded gun pointed at his head in Kim Kardashian's childhood bedroom -- it was Khloe's room ... and the walls weren't adorned by Joey Lawrence. Our Kardashian sources say Kim and Kourtney shared a bedroom in the Encino home, and Khloe had a room to herself »

Khloe Kardashian Recalls "Spiraling" as a Young Adult: "I Was Partying All the Time"

3 February 2016 12:49 PM, PST | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

After a trying handful of years, Khloe Kardashian is arguably in her best personal state to date. However, as she details herself, getting to this point was a "spiraling" battle. Before she was busy Keeping Up With the Kardashians, the 31-year-old reality star was struggling with her sisters to keep their newfound fashion venture called Dash afloat.  "There were months we couldn't pay our bills, and the store didn't turn a profit for years," Kardashian wrote on her website.  At the time, the blond beauty was still coping with the loss of her father, Robert Kardashian, after he passed away from cancer at 59 years old.  "After my dad died in »

Stephen Colbert Won’t Let His Old College Buddy David Schwimmer Live Down His Bad Kylo Ren Hair

3 February 2016 7:09 AM, PST | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

The thing about knowing someone before they got famous is you almost always have dirt on them. And when you end up equally as famous as that other famous person, then you totally get to rub their face in it on national TV. Leave it to David Schwimmer's old college buddy Stephen Colbert (they were once in an improv group called the No Fun Mud Piranhas, who knew?) to present the photographic evidence that Schwimmer definitely once rocked the long, unkempt Kylo Ren. To be fair, had Schwimmer thrown it in a man-bun, he might've been a decades-early trendsetter, and then Colbert would have nothing to giggle about (yeah, right). Poor Ross chopped it off by senior year (and got "jacked," apparently), thinking no one would ever know. Wrong! But if Colbert thought the Kylo Ren was bad, has he seen Schwimmer's Robert Kardashian hairdo? It's ... something. »

American Crime Story: Did That Scene in Kim Kardashian's Bedroom Really Happen?

2 February 2016 9:30 PM, PST | POPSUGAR | See recent BuzzSugar news »

Image Source: Getty Ryan Murphy's new series premiered on Wednesday, and one scene in particular may have left you with quite a few questions. The first episode of The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story introduces all the key players in O.J. Simpson's infamous trial for the 1994 murder of his ex-wife, Nicole Brown Simpson, and it ends on a rather precarious note. Simpson (played by Cuba Gooding Jr.) is holed up at the house of his close friend, Robert Kardashian (David Schwimmer) - yes, as in Kim, Khloé, Kourtney, and Robert's father. There's a warrant out for his arrest and he's scheduled to turn himself in to the police, but instead, we see him sitting at Kardashian's desk writing out his will and letters to his fans, his children, and his mother. Kardashian goes to console him, and it's revealed that Simpson has a gun in his hand. »

‘The People v. O.J. Simpson’ Recap: Building a Case for Murder

2 February 2016 8:25 PM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Spoiler alert: Do not read until you’ve watched episode one of “The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story,” titled “From the Ashes of Tragedy.”

It seems almost silly to put a spoiler alert at the top of this recap: We all know how this story ends. But twenty years have passed since the verdict was read — and “The People v. O.J. Simpson” painstakingly rebuilds the case from the beginning, filling in details we may have forgotten, while also carefully charting backstories for all the players we thought we knew.

Most tellingly, the first episode — as directed by Ryan Murphy, who also executive produces the series — opens on footage of the L.A. riots in the wake of the Rodney King verdict. Newscasters intone: “It’s going to take years to recover from this.” Indeed.

Let's talk about 'The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story' premiere

2 February 2016 8:20 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Yesterday, I posted my review of The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story. Now that the first episode's aired, it's time to talk about how the filmmakers are approaching this big story, coming up just as soon as I explain who O.J. is by talking about his Hertz commercials... There are going to be two distinct audiences for The People v. O.J.: anyone old enough (say, over 35) to have strong memories of the trial and its many weird players, and younger people who might have heard of the case but have no idea how beloved O.J. was at the time, nor how stunning it felt to have someone so famous accused of such a brutal crime. I spent a while yesterday explaining to a younger critic friend not only the magnitude of the Juice's popularity, but the very different relationship we had with our celebrities before the trial. »
