American Crime Story: The People v. O.J. Simpson: Looking at the Cast

If American Horror Story and Fargo weren't enough proof already, with the announcement of American Crime Story: The People v. O.J. Simpson it's become clear that FX loves anthology series.

American Crime Story is written and created by Scott Alexander and Larry Karaszewski (the writing team behind Ed Wood, The People v. Larry Flint, and Big Eyes) and will be produced and partially directed by Ryan Murphy, the creator and producer of Glee and American Horror Story.

Yesterday, Ryan Murphy announced via Twitter that he would be reteaming with Connie Britton for American Crime Story. Britton last worked with Murphy during the first season of American Horror Story.

Britton will play Faye Resnick, a close friend to the recently-deceased Nicole Brown Simpson. She joins an already star-studded cast that includes: Cuba Gooding Jr. as O.J. Simpson, Sarah Paulson (who's also reuiniting with Murphy after AHS) as Marcia Clark, David Schwimmer as Robert Kardashian Sr., John Travolta (also serving as producer) as Robert Shapiro, and Courtney B. Vance as Johnnie Cochran. 

Just like AHS, the idea behind American Crime Story is that each season will focus on a new true crime. American Crime Story is set to debut in early 2016.
