Cuba Gooding Jr. is set to play OJ Simpson in FX’s 10 part miniseries, which is all about the 1995 murder trial that we all know about.
Actors usually like to conduct as much research on a person they are playing but Gooding definitely felt otherwise about Simpson.
Reports have been made that Gooding was less than interested in meeting Simpson as part of his role research.
During a recent news conference Cuba never revealed if he thought OJ really murdered his then wife Nicole Brown.
However, he did state: “I had no desire to visit him in his present condition, being incarcerated and being a shell of a man.” Β He also added that he gained a ton of weight for the role and it took him a month to recover from shooting this film for six consecutive months.
The film will be premiering on February 2 on FX and is based on a book by CNN’s Jeffrey Toobin.
It was executive produced by Ryan Murphy and also stars John Travolta, Malcolm-Jamal Warner and David Schwimmer.
