Holy moly. Ahead of the sure-to-be epic series, ‘American Crime Story,’ we’ve now got our first official cast photos of the actors taking on their real life counter parts– and they are scary accurate.
You literally have to see these photos to believe them. In American Crime Story, which will debut on FX on a yet-to-be-announced date in 2016, the real life events of O.J. Simpson and the subsequent trial revolving around the death of his wife will be depicted in the season long anthology. Casting so far has been mind-blowingly accurate with Cuba Gooding Jr. playing O.J., David Schwimmer playing Robert Kardashian, John Travolta playing Robert Shapiro, and in a truly inspired move, Selma Blair playing Kris Jenner. Well, at long last, we’ve got some official portraits of the cast fully in character, and they are eerily on point. Check them all out!
‘AmericanCrime Story’ Cast Portraits
Though we’ve seen glimpses here and there through on set paparazzi shots, we’ve now got official glimpses of the American Crime Story actors and oh my God, you guys. In these character portraits, we see John, David, and Cuba in character, as well as the always phenomenal Sarah Paulson playing Marcia Clark.
We’d probably be impressed by the accuracy of these pics, if we weren’t so creeped out!
A Real Life Depiction
Of course, playing people who actually exist in real life can be daunting, and David is certainly aware of that. Speaking with E! Online, he said that he was actually able to get a bit of insight from Kris Jenner!
“She was very generous of her time and spoke very highly of Robert,” David said. “I’m excited to explore that relationship with Selma. She’s fantastic,” he added.
Well, we are equally as excited to watch you explore it, David.
Are you guys excited for American Crime Story? What do you think of the cast portraits?
