DAVID SCHWIMMER CAST AS ATTORNEY ROBERT KARDASHIAN IN "AMERICAN CRIME STORY: THE PEOPLE V. O.J. SIMPSON"

Award-Winning Actor and Director to Play O.J. Simpson's Friend and Attorney, Starring Opposite Academy Award(R)-Winning Actor Cuba Gooding Jr. as O.J. Simpson and Emmy Award(R) Nominated Sarah Paulson as Prosecutor Marcia Clark

Written by Scott Alexander & Larry Karaszewski, and Directed by Ryan Murphy and Based on the Book The Run of His Life: The People v. O.J. Simpson by Jeffrey Toobin

Ryan Murphy, Nina Jacobson, Brad Simpson Scott Alexander, Larry Karaszewski, Brad Falchuk, and Dante Di Loreto Are Executive Producers

LOS ANGELES, December 19, 2014 - Award-winning actor and director David Schwimmer has signed on to star as Robert Kardashian in the FX miniseries American Crime Story: The People v. O.J. Simpson.

Schwimmer will portray O.J. Simpson's confidant and attorney Kardashian, starring opposite Academy Award(R)-winning actor Cuba Gooding Jr. as O.J. Simpson and Emmy(R) Award and Golden Globe(R) Award nominated actress Sarah Paulson as prosecutor Marcia Clark.

American Crime Story: The People v. O.J. Simpson is written by Golden Globe-winning Executive Producers Scott Alexander and Larry Karaszewski. Based on the book The Run of His Life: The People v. O.J. Simpson by Jeffrey Toobin, the miniseries is a look at the O.J. Simpson trial told from the perspective of the lawyers. It explores the chaotic behind-the-scenes dealings and maneuvering on both sides of the court, and how a combination of prosecution overconfidence, defense shrewdness, and the LAPD's history with the city's African-American community gave a jury what it needed: reasonable doubt.

Emmy and Golden Globe award winning producer and Emmy Award winning Director Ryan Murphy will direct the first episode. He joins award-winning producers Nina Jacobson, Brad Simpson, Scott Alexander, Larry Karaszewski, Brad Falchuk, and Dante Di Loreto as Executive Producers. American Crime Story: The People v. O.J. Simpson, is produced by Fox 21 Television Studios and FX Productions. Production begins early next year in Los Angeles.

He starred in the premieres of D Girl and Turnaround in Los Angeles, Glimmer Brothers in Williamstown, Some Girls in London, the revival of The Caine Mutiny Court Martial On Broadway, and Detroit at Playwrights Horizons. Schwimmer most recently directed Sex with Strangers for the Second Stage Theatre.

Schwimmer's notable television and film credits include The Iceman, Nothing But the Truth, Madagascar I, II, & III, Duane Hopwood, Big Nothing, Band of Brothers, Curb Your Enthusiasm, Six Days Seven Nights, Apt Pupil, The Pallbearer and the hit comedy series Friends, for which he received an Emmy(R) Award nomination. His film and television directing includes Since You've Been Gone, Run, Fat Boy, Run, the HBO series Little Britain USA, and, Trust, starring Clive Owen, Catherine Keener and Viola Davis.
