American Crime Story: The People v. O.J. Simpson is over, but should the show's cast stay in the FX family?
The People v. O.J. Simpson ended its run Tuesday night, leaving many fans wanting more. Considering the miniseries was executive produced by Ryan Murphy, who also runs American Horror Story, should any of the show's sprawling cast take on a role in the show's upcoming sixth season?
Sarah Paulson and Connie Britton have had roles in both shows, and it's possible that after such a positive experience on The People v. O.J. Simpson that we could expect more crossover in the future. Courtney B. Vance, who played Johnnie Cochran in the FX miniseries, may be likeliest of all, considering he is also married to American Horror Story regular Angela Bassett.
John Travolta (who played Robert Shapiro) may be trickier to nail down for a part due to his star power, but a killer role on American Horror Story may be just what he needs to help bring him back into the spotlight further.
Cuba Gooding, Jr., who played the titular O.J. Simpson, may also look for his own career rehabilitation with an exciting role on AHS.
David Schwimmer—who starred as Robert Kardashian—may be too busy with his new AMC show Feed the Beast, but he too could be an interesting presence on American Horror Story.
Then there's actors like Sterling K. Brown (Christopher Darden), Kenneth Choi (Judge Lance Ito) and Nathan Lane (F. Lee Bailey) who could easily slide into the AHS universe in juicy roles.
Paulson will likely be back for another season of American Horror Story considering she's had roles in all five of its seasons so far. Britton only starred in the first season of the horror anthology series before taking a lead part in the ABC series Nashville, but if that show ends relatively soon, we could see her coming back to the world of horror.
What do you think? Which People v. O.J. Simpson stars should have a role in American Horror Story?
American Horror Story season 6 premieres in the fall on FX.
