John Travolta is returning to TV for the first time in 35 years, and will play O.J. Simpson lawyer Robert Shapiro in the upcoming FX series American Crime Story.
Shapiro was one of Simpson’s main lawyers during his epic murder trial, which was captured in Jeffrey Toobin’s book The Run of His Life: The People v. O.J. Simpson and is now being adapted for TV. Travolta joins David Schwimmer among those recently cast, and will join a talented group of actors that includes Cuba Gooding Jr. as O.J. and Sarah Paulson as prosecutor Marsha Clark.
But will we see Adele Dazeem?
