American Crime Story: FX Drama Casts Malcolm-Jamal Warner as O.J.'s Pal

Malcolm-Jamal Warner is the next American Horror Story alum to join Ryan Murphy’s latest anthology series.

The Cosby Show actor will appear on American Crime Story: The People vs. O.J. Simpson as Al “A.C.” Cowlings, our sister site Variety reports.

A former pro football player, Cowlings was a close friend of Simpson’s, best known for driving the white Ford Bronco that police famously followed in a televised car chase.

In addition to AHS: Freak Show — in which he recurred as a love interest for Angela Bassett’s character — Warner’s recent TV credits include Sons of Anarchy and Major Crimes.

He joins a cast that includes Selma Blair, John Travolta, David Schwimmer, Sarah Paulson, Connie Britton, Jordana Brewster and Cuba Gooding Jr. as Simpson.
