American Crime Story: Cuba Gooding, Jr. as O.J. Simpson & More Cast Photos

Warning: The photos you’re about to see can never be unseen — not that you’d want them to.

FX this week released the official cast photos from Ryan Murphy’s O.J. Simpson-centric American Crime Story, including Horror Story vet Sarah Paulson in her most unrecognizable role yet.

As head prosecutor Marcia Clark, Paulson trades her long locks for a tight mane of curls — but who wore them better, Paulson or Tina Fey in Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt?

David Schwimmer (Friends) as the late Robert Kardashian, O.J.’s close friend and defense attorney, is also a delight. That hair? Very Maxwell Sheffield.

And don’t think we forgot about John Travolta as Robert Shapiro, also a member of Simpson’s defense team. (We just got lost in his eyes for a second.)

    John looks incredibly handsome in his photo. Absolutely breathtaking and perhaps the best he has looked in years. Sarah Paulson actually looks great too.

  3. Who will be playing the gloves?

  4. Sean says:

    When does it air?

  5. Kristen says:

    Travolta looks like Chris Noth in his picture.

    This is what passes for quality broadcast entertainment? I don”t care who or whom looks like someone else. Scraping the bottom of the pot. Those who lived through that trail have enough memory of it for several lifetimes. And unless the Goldman family approved this, very poor taste. And if they did, still very poor taste…

  7. Bob Backus says:

    If they really want to be daring they should start the show with him committing the crime.

    I savor, lead to Ifound just what I was having a lookk for.

    You have ended my four day long hunt! God Bless you man. Have a great day.

    The new series is up against some ironic timing. Good cast, and a proven production company, but the new investigation into OJ and Kardashian’s criminal side businesses needs to be in the plot…maybe they will be? Google: Kardashian 1993 murder unsolved murder. John Travolta has that touch of evil, and he might just give us a hint.

    It would be good to see them next to the photos of people they play.
