How Much Does the Cast of American Crime Story Look Like Their Real-Life Counterparts?
Ryan Murphy's series American Crime Story: The People V. O.J. Simpson is chronicling the ultrafamous case of the former football player's infamous murder trial, and each week, we meet another prime player. Thanks to some '90s makeovers, the cast looks uncannily like the real-life people they're playing. Sarah Paulson, John Travolta, and Cuba Gooding Jr. are all starring in the limited series, based on Jeffrey Toobin's book The Run of His Life: The People v. O.J. Simpson. While you're marveling at their performances in the drama (and the crazy, yet true, scenes), take a look at how much they've been made to resemble the real people.
