We have our first look at the cast of American Crime Story: The People v. O.J. Simpson all dressed up and ready to go...to a funeral. Filming has begun for the TV miniseries from Ryan Murphy that will tackle the most sensational trial in recent American history. John Travolta is cast as Robert Shapiro, Cuba Gooding Jr. as OJ Simpson, Selma Blair puts on a 90s power suit to pull off Kris Jenner and David Schwimmer gets a shock of gray hair to play the late Kardashian patriarch. Sarah Paulson (not pictured here) plays Marcia Clark.
