Selma Blair is the latest actor to be cast in FX’s upcoming — and much anticipated — miniseries American Crime Story: The People V. OJ Simpson and will play none other than Kris Jenner.

According to Entertainment Weekly, Selma Blair will portray a younger version of Kris Jenner, who was divorced from OJ pal and attorney Robert Kardashian at the time of infamous OJ Simpson 1994 murder trial.

Robert Kardashian and Kris Jenner had four children — Kim, Khloé, Kourtney and Rob, better known as the stars of Keeping Up with the Kardashians on E!

Kris Jenner married Bruce Jenner just one month after divorcing Kardashian, who died from cancer in 2003.

Selma Blair, 42, joins an amazing American Crime Story cast, which includes Cuba Gooding Jr. as OJ Simpson, David Schwimmer as Robert Kardashian, John Travolta as defense attorney Robert Shapiro, Courtney B. Vance as lead defense attorney Johnnie Cochran, Connie Britton as Faye Resnick, Jordana Brewster as Denise Brown, and Sarah Paulson as prosecutor Marcia Clark.

This is not Selma Blair's first gig with FX. In 2012, she co-starred on the first season of Charlie Sheen’s FX sitcom Anger Management.
