In American Crime Story, Kris Jenner (formerly Kris Kardashian) is played by Selma Blair. Jenner’s late ex-husband, attorney Robert Kardashian, is played by former Friends star David Schwimmer. In the recently released trailer for the series, the two are shown arguing ahead of the trial involving their close friends O.J. Simpson and Nicole Brown.
Robert tells Kris, speaking of former pro football player Simpson, “He’s my friend. I don’t turn my back on people.”
“You’re turning your back on Nicole,” Kris yells back at Robert, who is also shown sobbing in his car at one point in the trailer.
Earlier in the trailer, Kris is at Brown’s funeral. “Do you think he did it?” she asks Faye Resnick, played by Connie Britton.
“She was terrified of him,” Faye replies.
American Crime Story, from American Horror Story creators Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk, will follow Simpson’s trial for the 1994 double homicide of his ex-wife Nicole Brown and her friend Ronald Goldman. The 1995 trial of the Heisman Trophy winner and once-beloved celebrity gripped the nation. Following nine months of testimony, the jury found Simpson not guilty.
John Travolta and Courtney B. Vance are playing defense attorneys Robert Shapiro and Johnnie Cochran, respectively. Sarah Paulson is starring as prosecutor Marcia Clark in the hotly anticipated series.
American Crime Story: The People v. OJ Simpson is slated to premiere on FX Feb. 2.
