Talk about an eerie resemblance. Selma Blair has just been confirmed to play Kris Jenner in the upcoming series, ‘American Crime Story.’ Following the casting news, the two women posed together, definitely proving why Selma is a perfect choice for the part!
On FX’s upcoming anthology series American Crime Story, which will debut some time in 2016, the first installment will focus on the infamous case of O.J. Simpson (Cuba Gooding Jr.). Additionally, the Ryan Murphy show will depict his lawyer, Robert Kardashian, who will be played on the show by David Schwimmer, as well as his then ex-wife Kris Jenner, who will be portrayed by Selma Blair. Just one day after Selma’s casting was announced, on May 12, she and Kris actually got together at the Children’s Justice Campaign in Beverly Hills, and the resemblance is almost creepy!

While we don’t know yet how heavily Kris/Selma will be featured in the series, this is still exciting, and we recommend Selma start tuning into Keeping Up with the Kardashians!
Kris Jenner Tips From Kris Jenner
Perhaps Selma was getting some tips from Kris when the two met up on the red carpet. However, one person who definitely has gotten some Jenner-related insight from the Kardashian matriarch is David Schwimmer.
When asked if Kris had any input on Selma’s casting, David added, “I highly doubt it, but she was very generous of her time and spoke very highly of Robert…I’m excited to explore that relationship with Selma. She’s fantastic.”
