O.J. Simpson Upset At How Johnnie Cochran Is Depicted In FX Series
According to Daily Mail reports:
Simpson’s attorney Malcolm LaVergne said that the former football great has no problems with how he’s shown in The People v. O.J. Simpson – the new FX drama set to premiere Tuesday night on FX – but believes his defense attorney Johnnie Cochran is depicted unfairly.
LaVergne added that Simpson admired Cochran, who is portrayed by the actor Courtney B. Vance in the series.
A prison friend of Simpson recently revealed to DailyMail.com that he was furious about the new show, produced by Ryan Murphy, because he feels that he had been ‘ignored.’
The friend added; ‘He says they have created this soap-opera based on what other people are saying and what has been falsely reported in the papers, but nobody had the b***s to talk to him.’
Simpson is basing these comments on commercials and ads he has seen for the program having not been able to watch any episodes of the show.
He was unable to see the premiere on Tuesday night as he is currently incarcerated in Nevada where prisons don’t carry the FX network.
Did you watch The People vs O.J. Simpson? What did you think about the way Johnnie Cochran was portrayed? Do you think Cuba Gooding Jr. and Courtney B. Vance did a good job so far?
