Kris jenner meets face to face with the actress who’ll play her in o. J. Simpson miniseries
Wait — which is which? Kris Jenner and Selma Blair met up at a charity event and snapped pics together after it was revealed on Monday that Blair will be playing Jenner in FX’s miniseries “American Crime Story: The People v. O.J. Simpson.” And clearly, it’s a good choice. Look at these dopplegangers!
Not only did they both dress in black (was this planned, ladies?), they even took a selfie — which has yet to be posted. *scours Kris Jenner’s Instagram*
The two celebs both attended the Children’s Justice Campaign Event in Beverly Hills on Tuesday night, meeting up with actress Kelly Rutherford, for whom they’re petitioning President Obama in order to get her children back from France. In a long, messy, custody battle, Rutherford’s kids were sent to live with father in France. Jenner and Blair, along with Kim Kardashian, are both supporters of Rutherford, and urged their followers to sign the petition.
Blair will be playing opposite David Schwimmer in “Glee” creator Ryan Murphy’s “American Crime Story” series. Schwimmer is taking on the role of Jenner’s late ex-husband Robert Kardashian, O.J. Simpson’s friend and member of his defense team during the 1995 murder trial of Simpson’s wife. John Travolta is playing Simpson’s attorney Robert Shapiro, Sarah Paulson will be prosecutor Marcia Clark and Cuba Gooding Jr. will play O.J. It airs in 2016.
Schwimmer also recently met up with the Kardashian matriarch, asking her for advice on how to play the man she was married to for 13 years.
“I was lucky enough to speak to [Jenner] for a few hours who was very generous with her time,” Schwimmer told the Associated Press. “I thought, ’Who better to tell me who Robert was as a husband and a father than her?’ And it’s been a very exciting process so far.”
