OJ Simpson Snags Movie Role, Nicole Brown & Ron Goldman’s Families Pissed
OJ Simpson has landed his first job since being released from prison last October. According to reports, he landed a small role in a movie by British comedian Sacha Baron Cohen. Cohen is known for playing the comedic character ‘Borat’.
Reportedly, Simpson received more than $20,000 for the role. No further details about the project have been released.
Back in 1994, Simpson, who is now 70, was acquitted of charges that he murdered his ex-wife Nicole Brown and her friend Ron. He was later found liable for their murders and was ordered to pay over $25 million.
In response to reports of Simpson’s new movie role, collection lawyer David Cook, who represents Ron Goldman’s dad, Fred Goldman, in the civil case against OJ stated,
If money changed hands [between Cohen and Simpson], then all of the money paid should go to Ron’s father, Fred. There is a legal and moral imperative here.
Nicole’s sister, Tanya Brown, also responded,
Nicole and Ron are two human beings who were brutally murdered. This is not a joke, nor is it entertainment. If Sacha makes this a comedic effort, [Simpson’s] victims will be personified as a joke. Shame on him.
