I guess a rubber leech in a matted down Liza wig wasn’t available.
So much for the rumor that reality whore Lisa Rinna is going to play the dark priestess of reality whores. If Selma Blair’s family walks in on her playing with a Ouija board while chanting to Satan, they don’t need to scream for a priest and douse with her holy water. There’s nothing to worry about. She’s just doing research by talking to Lucifer through the Ouija board about his apprentice’s earlier days. Deadline says that Selma has been cast as Pimp Mama Kris in Ryan Murphy’s American Crime Story: The People vs. O.J. Simpson, which will air on FX next year.
Selma Blair as PMK just adds another level of WTF to the cast list which is already every layer of WTF. David Schwimmer is Robert Kardashian, John Travolta is Robert Shapiro, Sarah Paulson is Marcia Clark, Cuba Gooding Jr. is O.J. Simpson, Connie Britton is the morally corrupt Faye Resnick, Jordana Brewster is Denise Brown, Courtney B. Vance is Johnnie Cochran, Sterling K. Brown is Christopher Darden and Kenneth Choi is Judge Ito. They have yet to announce who’s going to play Kato Kaelin and Nicole Brown Simpson. Judging by the casting decisions so far, Nicole Brown Simpson will either be played by Jessica Lange or a blonde Angie Harmon. Kato Kaelin will either be played by Kato Kaelin in a Jennifer Aniston wig or a badly made Fabio wax figure.
This is actually pretty good casting. Selma kind of looks like a younger Pimp Mama Kris (“That is the meanest thing that anybody has EVER said to me” – Selma Blair) and if she wants to capture the true essence of PMK, all she has to do is wear money sign contact lenses and scream “Praise Satan!” every now and again.
I know that American Crime Story is only going to focus on the O.J. Simpson trial, but I hope they’ll do a flashback episode where they’ll show the making of the video that plays in the elevator going to the Ninth Circle:
And here’s PMK with her latest victim Corey Gamble and Big Sean at Wango Tango in Carson, CA this past weekend.
