'People v. O.J. Simpson' Star Courtney B. Vance Didn't Watch the Trial

“The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story” star Courtney B. Vance admits that he didn’t watch the O.J. murder trial — aka the Trial of the Century.

“I didn’t know him at all, nor did I follow the trial,” Vance said of defense attorney Johnnie Cochran, who he portrayed in the FX miniseries. “I followed O.J. Simpson. I was a huge O.J. Simpson fan from when he was at USC and then when he went to Buffalo in that cold weather.”

Vance said he was such a fanatic that he couldn’t bear to watch Simpson’s now-infamous Bronco chase. “I was hurt to my soul,” he told “Black‑ish” star Tracee Ellis Ross on Variety and PBS’ fourth season of “Actors on Actors.”

“Variety Studio: Actors on Actors” will air in two parts on PBS SoCal, presented by Shopbop/East Dane, on June 12 and June 19 at 7 p.m.
