Here’s another interesting beat in the wild world of the Kardashian/Jenner family: EW can reveal that Selma Blair (Legally Blonde) will play Kris Jenner in FX’s highly anticipated event series American Crime Story: The People V OJ Simpson. Jenner was, of course, married to Simpson’s attorney Robert Kardashian (played on the series by David Schwimmer), and was also a close friend of Nicole Brown Simpson.

Blair joins a cast that includes Schwimmer, John Travolta (Robert Shapiro), Cuba Gooding Jr (OJ Simpson), Sarah Paulson (Marcia Clark), Courtney B. Vance (Johnnie Cochran), Connie Britton (Faye Resnick), and Jordana Brewster (Denise Brown). The series, executive produced by Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk (American Horror Story), has begun shooting in LA.
