David Schwimmer Shocks All with New Role
David Schwimmer is and will probably always be best known as Ross Geller on the hit NBC comedy series, Friends. However, he’s getting ready to break that image with his new role as…a Kardashian? That’s right, Schwimmer will raise a lot of eyebrows with his new TV role as Robert Kardashian in a new FX miniseries about the O.J. Simpson trial.
This miniseries will be under the guidance of Ryan Murphy, so you know it’s going to be good. Schwimmer will appear on a recurring basis as Simpson’s attorney in the first season of the true-crime anthology series “American Crime Story”. Starring alongside him are Cuba Gooding Jr., who will play Simpson, and Sarah Paulson who is taking on the part as prosecutor Marcia Clark.
The first season of the new anthology series, titled American Crime Story: The People v. O.J. Simpson, will be based solely on Jeffrey Toobin’s best-selling book named The Run of His Life: The People v. O.J. Simpson. The miniseries will last for 10 episodes and be told straight from the perspective of the lawyers behind the scenes of one of the most talked about trials in history. American Crime Story: The People v. O.J. Simpson is best described as a miniseries that “explores the chaotic behind-the-scenes dealings and maneuvering on both sides of the court, and how a combination of prosecution overconfidence, defense shrewdness, and the LAPD’s history with the city’s African-American community gave a jury what it needed: reasonable doubt.”
What do you think about Schwimmer taking on the role of a Kardashian? It should be interesting to say the least. I may have been a mere child when this trial took place, but even I know it is one of the most infamous cases of all time. This is going to get people talking. There was a time when Schwimmer was the biggest thing on television. I mean, who doesn’t love Friends? He’s been pretty much the only cast member from that show who has fallen out of sight. To me, this is going to be the big comeback he needs.
