Oscar winner Cuba Gooding Jr. is taking on the pivotal role of O.J. Simpson in FX's new series "American Crime Story: The People v. O.J. Simpson."
The series is based off the book "The Run of His Life: The People v. O.J. Simpson," which chronicled Simpson's murder trial from the perspective of the prosecutors and defense attorneys.
In 1994, Simpson, a former NFL player, was tried for the murders of his ex-wife, Nicole Brown Simpson, and her friend Ronald Lyle Goldman. Eight months later, O.J. Simpson was acquitted after the jury found reasonable doubt given the evidence located at the scene. (Video via CNN)
