Courtney B. Vance, the Tony-Award winning actor has signed on to play the late legal master mine Johnnie Cochran in FX’s ‘American Crime Story: The People v. O.J. Simpson. I personal think he’s the perfect choice to portray Johnnie Cochran. According to TVLine check out this star studded line-up, Cuba Gooding Jr., who will portray the disgraced football great, O.J. Simpson with ‘American Horror Story’s Sarah Paulson will go from her curls to play prosecutor Marcia Clark. Based on Jeffrey Toobin’s best-selling book, ‘The Run Of His Life: The People v. O.J. Simpson, the first season of the upcoming anthology will focus in on the Simpson murder trial where the all-time great running back was charged with and acquitted for killing is wife Nicole Brown and her friend Ronald Goldman. I can’t wait, I’m looking forward to this 10-episode series.
