What did Sarah Paulson have to say about the hair she had while playing Marcia Clark in The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story, and where does Adam Sandler go for takeout in NYC? Jeffrey Slonim has the scoop on that and more in this week’s celebrity news….
What Did Sarah Paulson Think of Marcia Clark’s Hair in The People v. O.J. Simpson?
Marcia Clark (LEFT) during the '90s trial of O.J. Simpson. Sarah Paulson (RIGHT), shown here in real life, plays Clark in The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story.
Sarah Paulson, who plays Marcia Clark in the series, told us that the former prosecutor currently has a hairdo that looks nothing like it did during the ‘90s trial. “Her hair is straight and sleek and brown and wonderful. And the first thing Marcia said when she sat down was, ‘I just want to apologize for the hair.’ She just meant for me to have to put the sort of big Chia pet wig on my head on national television.”
“I ran into Miss Dale Cochran, and she said that I’m now her TV husband,” Courtney B. Vance, who wears a hairpiece and does an extraordinary job channeling Johnnie Cochran, mentioned.
Cuba Gooding Jr. doesn’t exactly look like O.J., but he gets his intensity. He said his aim was “to bring out the emotional truth.”
“It’s a very heavy subject matter,” offered John Travolta, who arrived at the premiere with his wife Kelly Preston. Travolta, by the way, looks exactly like Robert Shapiro onscreen. “But we would keep each other going with the levity between takes,” he added.
