Oscar nominated actress Angela Bassett was on hand to support hubby Courtney B. Vance, who plays famed attorney, Johnnie Cochran. The premiere took place at Westwood Village Theatre last night.
American Crime Story “The People vs. OJ Simpson” is based on Jeffrey Toobin’s book The Run of His Life and begins on June 13, 1994, the night that many believe former NFL star O.J. Simpson stabbed ex-wife Nicole Brown Simpson and her boyfriend, Ronald Goldman, to death at Nicole’s home. It continues through Simpson’s arrest and trial, introducing some of the case’s star players — including Marcia Clark (played by Sarah Paulson, American Horror Story), Johnnie Cochran (Courtney B. Vance, Law & Order: Criminal Intent), Robert Shapiro (John Travolta, Pulp Fiction) and Robert Kardashian (David Schwimmer, Friends) — as the fervor surrounding Simpson’s fate monopolizes the 24-hour news cycle.
