Leave it to the creators of Glee to collage together the weirdest cast ever for a docu-series about the OJ Simpson trial. Executive producers Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuck have tapped Selma Blair to play Kris Jenner for FX's upcoming show American Crime Story: The People V OJ Simpson, according to EW. Kris Jenner was married to OJ Simpson's attorney, Robert Kardashian, who will be played by David Schwimmer, from 1978-1999. For the show, Cuba Gooding Jr. is taking on the role of OJ, and the creepiest man in Hollywood himself, John Travolta will play Robert Shapiro, the civil litigator who was part of OJ's defense.
Kris Jenner married Robert Kardashian, who was 11 years older than her, when she was 22, and she went through a hard divorce after having an affair with a soccer player. Although the two were on good terms when Robert died, Kris attended the OJ trial in protest, wearing Nicole Brown Simpson's hand-me-down maternity clothes (she was married to Bruce Jenner by then).
Blair hasn't done much acting since Cruel Intentions and Legally Blonde, but we're curious to see how she and Ross from Friends play the strange celebrity duo that gave rise to the Kardashian empire.
American Crime Story is a crime anthology series in the vein of American Horror story, which was also created by Murphy and Falchuck. It will air in 2016. Until then, just picture if Ross Geller and the virgin from Cruel Intentions really were Kim Kardashian's parents. It's fun.
