One of the four teasers released today for FX's upcoming anthology series, American Crime Story: The People v. O.J. Simpson, reveals Travolta in character as the famous lawyer who successfully defended O.J. Simpson in his 1995 murder trial.
“Anytime that I take on a new criminal case, I always ask the client a question. Now, I won’t be judgmental so ... ” says Travolta to Cuba Gooding Jr., who stars as Simpson, in the 15-second clip.
