Discuss American Crime Story

Continuing a thread from IMDb, who do you think. I had suggested Dwayne Johnson. He has those sharp features that OJ had and maybe he could've pulled it off. Granted he wouldn't have done it. But any other suggestions.

I liked Cuba, but physically he didn't resemble OJ.

Bill Cosby.

The Rock wouldnt be able to do it... not just that he'd have to go off the steroids and lose a lot of weight, but more importantly, he's never played an human being on screen before... he's always a caricature... i doubt he's be able to pull it off...

Denzel would have suited the role in the past but he's too old now to play OJ in the 90s and i doubt he does TV...

You need a decently sized and masculine actor... most of the young ones are too small... a lot of the younger black actors are very scrawny...

You also need someone who can act to pull off the nuances of the character... Cuba Gooding nailed this part

My first choice would be Michael Dorn actually - he's a little too old, yes, but at least he looks and sounds a lot closer to O.J.

What about Michael B. Jordan? If he bulked up a bit and shaved his face, he might be able to... Too young?
