While David is playing Robert Kardashian, Cuba will be playing the pivotal character of O.J. Simpson. John Travolta, 61, will play Robert Shapiro, Sarah Paulson, 40, will play Marcia Clark, Connie Britton, 48, will play Faye Resnick and Jordana Brewster, 35, will play Denise Brown.
When David was cast as Robert, HollywoodLife.com learned EXCLUSIVELY how the Kardashian felt about the role.
“The first thing said within the family was, ‘Ross can’t play our dad!’ Kim, Khloe, Kourtney and Rob Kardashian knew before the announcement that David was cast and even though they like him, the family is still baffled at the casting choice and think their dad deserves better,” a source told HollywoodLife.com.
We wonder how they feel about Selma as their momma! We think she’s a pretty good choice!
