According to Deadline, Selma Blair will play Kris Jenner in the Ryan Murphy executive produced The People V O.J. Simpson..
In the mini, Kris Jenner is the ex-wife of Simpson’s attorney and confidant Robert Kardashian. They had four children that formed the core of the reality TV juggernaut Keeping Up With The Kardashians: Kourtney, Kim, Khloe and Rob. She married Bruce Jenner soon after the divorce. Robert Kardashian died of cancer in 2003.
American Crime Story: The People v. O.J. Simpson is written by Scott Alexander and Larry Karaszewski. Ryan Murphy is executive producing with fellow American Horror Story co-creator Brad Falchuk, Nina Jacobson & Brad Simpson, Scott Alexander and Larry Karaszewski.
We think Selma will likely be able to nail the “comedy” of Kris Jenner quite well. Kris was probably thinking “Thanks, Dewey, but with my luck I’d get Tori Spelling.” — but she didn’t! She got Cecile Caldwell from Cruel Intentions! Live it up, hon!
