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.
