Today, we got another teaser for FX’s hugely anticipated American Crime Story: The People v. O.J. Simpson, and once again FX is playing up the ties to the Kardashian family. In the last teaser, we got our first glimpse at Selma Blair as Kris Kardashian, who at the time was married to Simpson’s lawyer Robert Kardashian, played here by David Schwimmer.
The new teaser takes it one step further teasing Simpson’s infamous meltdown in a young Kim Kardashian’s bedroom. “Do not kill yourself in Kimmy’s bedroom!” Schwimmer pleads to a distraught Cuba Gooding Jr.’s distraught Simpson. It’s a sly move by the network, who will be looking to lure in a generation of viewers who are likely unfamiliar with the legal saga that at the time, was dubbed “The Trial of The Century.” No word yet on whether a young Kim Kardashian will actually make an appearance in the series, but if producers are looking to fill the role, we’re sure North is free.
American Crime Story: The People v. O.J. Simpson premieres Feb. 2 on FX.
