Dale Godboldo will play Carl E. Douglas in Ryan Murphy‘s new FX anthology
Dale Godboldo has been cast as defense attorney Carl E. Douglas on upcoming FX anthology series “American Crime Story: The People v. O.J. Simpson,” TheWrap has learned.
Douglas was one of the top lawyers in the law firm of Johnnie Cochran, and was one of the attorneys defending NFL star O.J. Simpson in the murder of his wife Nicole Brown and her friend Ron Goldman.
John Travolta will portray Robert Shapiro; “Law & Order: Criminal Intent” alum Courtney B. Vance is Johnnie Cochran; David Schwimmer takes on Robert Kardashian; “American Horror Story” star Sarah Paulson plays Marcia Clark; Cuba Gooding Jr. will put himself in Simpson’s shoes, as the limited run series recaps the so-called Trial of the Century.
Based on the Jeffrey Toobin book “The Run of His Life: The People v. O.J. Simpson,” the miniseries is a look at the O.J. Simpson trial told from the perspective of the lawyers. It explores the chaotic behind-the-scenes dealings and maneuvering on both sides of the court, and how a combination of prosecution overconfidence, defense shrewdness, and the LAPD’s history with the city’s African-American community gave a jury what it needed: Reasonable doubt.
Ryan Murphy, Nina Jacobson, Brad Simpson, Scott Alexander, Larry Karaszewski, Brad Falchuk, and Dante Di Loreto are executive producing the series. Alexander and Karaszewski are writing, as well, and Murphy is directing the first episode.
Godboldo recently appeared in “Thor” and the “Fame” remake. He is represented by Daniel Hoff Agency and Industry Entertainment.

LOS ANGELES, Oct. 28, 2014 /PRNewswire-iReach/ — Actor/Producer/Philanthropist Dale Godboldo made a Commitment to Action at the 10th Clinton Global Initiative Annual Meeting called Project:NOW (PN), a non-profit initiative that stresses urgency in addressing the educational needs of at-risk youth in America.
To help raise funding, PN held the Inaugural Legacy Project Dinner on Wednesday, September 24, 2014, honoring President George W. Bush. The evening was hosted by “The Good Wife’s” Chris Noth. Press release ==> HERE
Project:NOW was formed by Godboldo’s Always In The Club Foundation in partnership with US Dream Academy, Cherokee Gives Back, Arthur Wylie Entrepreneurship & Leadership Fund, Dimension4 Strategy Group, and PVBLIC Foundation. Its mission is to help at-risk youth compete in a modern, global economy. Programs include innovative literacy interventions and intensive entrepreneurship training courses designed to create leaders in underserved communities in America. Co-founded by David Garner and Angelique Sheppard, Project:NOW will leverage its partners’ core competencies, existing infrastructures, and years of hands-on experience to accelerate their activities – uniquely, and relentlessly, stressing the urgency of NOW.
“I’m excited to be working with CGI and all of our partners to launch what we believe will help change the way that our country responds to young people most in need of help,” states Godboldo. “I’m so thankful and honored that President Bush, who has been at the forefront of bringing these issues to a national platform, participated in our first event – a testament to his ongoing commitment to supporting our youth.”
Project:NOW is also developing leading-edge funding strategies, including public/private partnerships that utilize Social Impact Bonds (SIBs) to scale success.
“Project:NOW is at the forefront of a national movement to bring together investors, non-profits, and political figures in new and purposeful ways,” states Garner, Director of SIBs. “Our goal is to build a more efficient, cost effective, mutually beneficial society, that’s preventative rather than reactive when it comes to addressing social problems.”
