In American Crime Story, Britton will play Faye Resnick. Resnick, who has more recently made a name for herself on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, was a close friend of Nicole Brown’s. Prior to Brown’s murder, she had been staying at Brown’s condominium. The two had often hung out together in Brentwood, Los Angeles and even vacationed together in Mexico.
Murphy announced Britton’s casting Monday on Twitter.

Earlier this month, Britton admitted that she’d love to work with Murphy again when asked if she’d ever return to American Horror Story. “Of course I would,” she said, adding, “I would love to come back, but scheduling is tricky.”
While Britton won’t be joining the cast of American Horror Story: Hotel, she’ll be joining fellow American Horror Story alum Sarah Paulson (Marcia Clark) in Murphy’s latest TV endeavor. Cuba Gooding Jr. stars as Simpson, John Travolta as Robert Shapiro, David Schwimmer as Robert Kardashian and Courtney Vance as Johnnie Cochran.
