In “well that’s pretty amazing” casting news, Ryan Murphy has brought in the incomparable Selma Blair to play Kris Kardashian Jenner in the forthcoming American Crime Story, which is of course about O.J. Simpson and is sure to include enough courtroom scenes to call for a home screening of Legally Blonde to freshen up on what Selma looks like giving her best side eye. I mean Selma Blair as Kris Jenner? Yes!

More casting news this way….
