Tami Taylor is headed to court, y'all.
Ryan Murphy announced today (March 23) that "American Horror Story" alum Connie Britton would be joining the cast of his upcoming miniseries "American Crime Story: The People v. O.J. Simpson." But wait! There's more. Britton will be playing Nicole Brown Simpson's troubled BFF Faye Resnick, otherwise known as the "morally corrupt" Faye Resnick from "The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills." Holy awesome casting, Batman!
We've been waiting for Mrs. Coach to unleash her wild side on national television, and it sounds like she'll have every opportunity to do so in "The People v. O.J. Simpson." At the time of Nicole Brown Simpson's murder, Resnick was in rehab for her cocaine addiction. However, she played an integral part in the murder trial, having been one of the last people to see her friend alive. There's no doubt Britton will sink her teeth into this role.
Murphy's "American Crime Story" got a straight-to-series order from FX in October -- with a 10-episode first season focusing on the infamous murder trial of former NFL star O.J. Simpson, who was accused and ultimately acquitted of killing his wife.
Most recently, Courtney B. Vance has been cast as O.J.'s defense attorney Johnnie Cochran, joining John Travolta as Robert Shapiro and David Schwimmer as Robert Kardashian -- AKA O.J.'s legal "dream team."
Meanwhile, Cuba Gooding Jr. will play Simpson, with "American Horror Story" favorite Sarah Paulson stepping into the role of prosecutor Marcia Clark.
But c'mon, y'all. Clearly we're here for the incomparable Connie Britton -- and her beautiful mane (AKA the real star of this miniseries).
