This is a juicy piece of casting on FX’s American Crime Story: The People v. O.J. SimpsonSelma Blair is set to play TV reality star and Kardashian clan matriarch in the the miniseries, which takes a look at the O.J. Simpson trial told from the perspective of the lawyers that explores the chaotic behind-the-scenes dealings and maneuvering on both sides of the court, and how a combination of prosecution confidence, defense wiliness, and the LAPD’s history with the city’s black community gave a jury what it needed: reasonable doubt.

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.

Blair is repped by  Gersh and Troy Nankin at Wishlab.
