BRUCE GREENWOOD JOINS CAST OF "AMERICAN CRIME STORY: THE PEOPLE V. O.J. SIMPSON"

Award-Winning Actor to Play Gil Garcetti, the Los Angeles County District Attorney Who Prosecuted O.J. Simpson for Murder

LOS ANGELES, May 20, 2015 - Award-winning actor Bruce Greenwood has joined the cast of American Crime Story: The People V. O.J. Simpson, portraying Gil Garcetti, the Los Angeles County District Attorney who prosecuted O.J. Simpson for the murder of his ex-wife Nicole Brown Simpson and Ronald Goldman. Greenwood (Star Trek Into Darkness, Star Trek, Thirteen Days, Flight) joins an all-star cast that includes Cuba Gooding Jr. as O.J. Simpson, John Travolta as defense attorney Robert Shapiro, David Schwimmer as defense attorney Robert Kardashian, and Sarah Paulson as prosecutor Marcia Clark. Greenwood is represented by Gersh and Binder & Associates.

Production of the FX limited series is currently underway in Los Angeles. Emmy(R) and Golden Globe(R) award winning producer and Emmy Award winning Director Ryan Murphy (American Horror Story, The Normal Heart) will direct the first episode and serve as Executive Producer, along with Nina Jacobson, Brad Simpson, Scott Alexander, Larry Karaszewski and Brad Falchuk.

American Crime Story: The People V. O.J. Simpson is written by Golden Globe-winning producers Alexander and Karaszewski (Big Eyes, The People v. Larry Flynt). American Crime Story: The People V. O.J. Simpson is produced by Fox 21 Television Studios and FX Productions.

Based on the book The Run of His Life: The People V. O.J. Simpson by Jeffrey Toobin, the limited series 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.
