‘American Crime Story: The People V. OJ Simpson’ — Intense First Teaser

With ‘Scream Queens’ and ‘American Horror Story: Hotel’ trailers dropping left and right we almost forgot about the other masterful project that Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk are working on. However, we now finally have our first look, er listen, of ‘American Crime Story.’

After seeing the John Travolta as Robert Shapiro, Sarah Paulson as Marcia Clark and David Schwimmer as Robert Kardashian, we were ready to hear them. The new trailer for American Crime Story: The People V. OJ, however, didn’t exactly give us a look — but instead, a listen of John, Sarah, Courtney B. Vance as Johnny Cochran, and Cuba Gooding Jr. as O.J. Simpson. Watch it here.

Alright, so this isn’t exactly a trailer, but more of an audio file with some text. We get our first listen of the main cast’s voices, which sound pretty good as far as we’re concerned. We hear Marcia coming to the defense of her friend, Nicole Brown Simpson, and OJ revealing who should get custody of his children.

American Crime Story also includes Selma Blair as Kris Jenner, Jordana Brewster as Denise Brown, Nathan Lane set as F. Lee Bailey and Connie Britton as Faye Resnick. As of now, we’ve seen some still shots of the cast, including the girls that will play the Kardashians, but we’ve yet to see any video.

The trailer also reveals that the first series of ACS will air in February 2016, so well, we have a while to wait. We know that in the meantime, John Travolta has been spending some time on the set next to his — American Horror Story: Hotel. He actually stopped by to see Lady Gaga, and he was still dressed as the defense attorney. According to EW, who were on set, he hugged Gaga, who was wearing pasties and just a robe. They chatted (about Barbra Streisand) and he then watched her “bloodshed in the bedroom” scene, which “she writhes around on the best like a famished animal.”

Well, we hope to see more of ACS soon — this looks sounds good.
