Courtney B. Vance Lands Johnnie Cochran Rike

Angela Bassett’s hubby and Law & Order alum, Courtney B. Vance is heading back to the legal beat with a role as defense attorney Johnnie Cochran in FX’s miniseries, American Crime Story: The People v. O.J. Simpson.

The series will dive into the infamous O.J Simpson trial from the perspective of lawyers and the chaotic behind-the-scenes happenings.

Vance will be a prominent figure in the mini due to Cochran’s controversial personality, playing the race card while defending Simpson and of course, the famous one-liner “if it doesn’t fit, you must acquit.”

An official air date has yet to be released.
