Sacha Baron Cohen interviews OJ Simpson about a murder fantasy

Sacha Baron Cohen interviews OJ Simpson about a murder fantasy

The half-hour Showtime series finished its seven-episode run on Sunday night, and, if Cohen's Twitter is to be believed, the season finale was actually a series finale.

Cohen, as he always does on the show series, disguised himself pretending to be an Italian photographer named Gio Monaldo. "Baron Cohen then explained to Simpson that his industrial companion is "obsessed" with the evening Simpson's outmoded wife, Nicole Brown Simpson, used to be killed in 1994."(He) wishes you to be 100% truthful the fashion you received away with it", Baron Cohen mentioned."I did no longer secure away with nothing", objected Simpson who used to be found harmless."I did no longer secure away with anything else with my wife, either.

"Oopsy daisy", Simpson replies, laughing along.

"If I do (kill her), you introduce to me (Johnnie) Cochran", Baron Cohen joked. He added: "I want to send her on a private helicopter tour over the Grand Canyon - oops-a-daisy".

However, his jovial demeanor and the high five that he offered Baron Cohen seemed incriminating enough to us.

Finally, Cohen's character says his business partner would like a one-on-one meeting with Simpson. OJ Simpson, whose fame originally stemmed from his athletic career but later became notoriety after he was accused of killing his wife and her lover, was the subject of a circus-like murder trial. Cohen said, "We both, uh, how you say, 'lady killers.'" The statement made Simpson uncomfortable, so Cohen pushed forward saying, "It's not what it sounds like".

Tell us what you think! Simpson immediately denied the accusation, saying, "No, I didn't kill nobody."The whole bit appeared to be filmed without Simpson's knowledge".

At some point during the interview, LaVergne said, Simpson realized it was "Sacha Baron Cohen doing his thing", based on a few tells that gave it away: a legal pad he took out during the conversation - which isn't something a billionaire playboy would be using - and the fact that Cohen is 6'3.

Cohen also brought back his character Erran Morad, Israeli military expert, who met with three Trump supporters who were competing to help Morad fight antifa. "We had been divorced", he said. Simpson laughed but told Cohen's character to stop.

Sunday's episode notably did not include a segment featuring former Alaska governor Sarah Palin, who said ahead of the show's July premiere that she had been tricked into a bogus interview with Cohen.
