An actor known for his role as one of the “Friends” on the long-running NBC sitcom is joining the FX anthology “American Crime: The People v. O.J. Simpson.” The Hollywood Reporter’s Live Feed reports that David Schwimmer will co-star as Simpson’s friend and attorney Robert Kardashian.
The first season of the anthology series from Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk is based on Jeffrey Toobin’s book “The Run of His Life: The People v. O.J. Simpson.”
The 10-episode series will look at the trial through the attorneys’ perspective, as well as the behind-the-scenes dealings of the court. The cast also includes Cuba Gooding Jr. as Simpson and Sarah Paulson as Marcia Clark.
