Selma Blair plays a perfect Kris Jenner--then Kardashian, of course--in the American Crime Story: The People v. O.J Simpson trailer.

The first chapter debuts of February 2nd, and in addition to Selma Blair, stars Cuba Gooding Jr., John Travolta, Sarah Paulson, David Schwimmer, Courtney B. Vance, and Connie Britton.

David Schwimmer plays the role of the late Robert Kardashian, who at the time of the O.J. Simpson trial was still married to Kris. The two were close friends with O.J. and Nicole Simpson.

The American Crime Story version of the O.J. Simpson trial is based on the book, The Run of His Life: The People v. O.J. Simpson by CNN legal analyst Jeffrey Toobin, and tells the story from the perspective of the lawyers involved.

Selma Blair and David Schwimmer, in their Kris and Robert Kardashian characters, get in a heated argument about him representing O.J. Simpson.

"He's my friend. I don't turn my back on people," Schwimmer says.

Selma Blair tells him that by defending O.J., "You're turning your back on Nicole."

Will you check out Selma Blair as Kris Kardashian Jenner in American Crime Story: The People v. O.J. Simpson when it airs on FX in its 10-part miniseries beginning on February 2?
