Excited to announce my friend Connie Britton will play Faye Resnick in the upcoming FX miniseries The People v. O.J. Simpson.— Ryan Murphy (@MrRPMurphy) March 23, 2015
The Nashville star, who appeared in the first season of Murphy's American Horror Story, will play the Los Angeles socialite (or, as Real Housewives of Beverly Hills fans remember, the woman Camille Grammer dubbed "the morally corrupt Faye Resnick"), who was friends with Nicole Brown Simpson.
The 10-episode season is based on the Jeffrey Toobin book The Run of His Life: The People v. O.J. Simpson. The cast includes Cuba Gooding Jr. as Simpson, John Travolta as Robert Shapiro, David Schwimmer as Robert Kardashian and Murphy's frequent collaborator Sarah Paulson as Marcia Clark.
