Selma Blair has been cast as the Kris Jenner, the world’s greatest momager and ex-wife of late attorney Robert Kardashian in Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk’s upcoming FX miniseries American Crime Story: The People V. OJ Simpson. Lord knows there is only one KJ, but we can’t think of anyone better to play her than Blair. Here’s why:
1. Selma, we miss you. Where have you been all of our lives?
2. They’re practically twins.
3. Anything Murphy does is perfection and should not to be questioned.
Jenner was divorced from Kardashian, who was Simpson’s friend and lawyer, by the time the 1994 murder trial took place. And from the few references she’s made on Keeping Up with the Kardashians, we know she was very close to the late Nicole Brown Simpson. Blair joins an all-star cast that includes Cuba Gooding, Jr., who will play Simpson, David Schwimmer (Robert Kardashian), John Travolta (Simpson’s lawyer Robert Shapiro), and Courtney B. Vance (Simpson’s lawyer Johnnie Cochran). What do you think? Is Blair a good choice to play momma Jenner? Sound off below.
