Looking at Selma Blair and Kris Jenner together on the red carpet earlier this week, it’s easy to see the ladies have a few similar characteristics… But, when Selma was transformed into Kris for American Crime Story? Woah!

Shortly after news broke that Selma was going to play the Kardashian matriarch in FX’s upcoming miniseries, she was spotted on set looking like a dead-ringer for 1990s-version Kris. Also seriously impressive is the transformation of David Schwimmer into Kris’ late ex-husband, Robert Kardashian.
Not only are Selma and David’s appearances spot-on, but — if it’s up to Kris — their impressions of her and Robert will be accurate, too.
“I think David has Robert down pat,” Kris told TMZ this week when asked about what she told David during a recent meeting. She added she also thinks Selma is “great.”
We also got a look this week at John Travolta as Robert Shapiro. According to Variety, John is co-producing the 10-episode mini-series with Ryan Murphy and a handful of others.
Last but not least, we got to see Cuba Gooding Jr. as OJ Simpson.
Speaking during upfronts this week, Cuba said he hopes viewers take more away from the show than, “Wow, that person looks a lot like so-and-so.”
“People keep asking me whether I think he did it or not, and I don’t think that’s the goal here, to prove his innocence or his guilt,” he said. “I think it’s more us putting the judicial system under the spotlight… We try to find a truth in the moment so that we can find answers. I think this 10 hours of television is gonna be very powerful, and I think a lot of people are going to learn a lot.”
American Crime Story is slated to premiere in 2016.
