Sacha Baron Cohen attempts to coax murder confession from O.J. Simpson

Posted August 28, 2018

During Sunday's finale of Sacha Baron Cohen's "Who Is America?" the Showtime series wasn't short on Juice.

That's sad to hear, not to mention a little surprising (I've always been convinced that Cohen and company were sitting on at least another season's worth of hijinks). - was unaware he was being interviewed by the comedian, sat down with a man he believed to be Gio Monaldo, an Italian billionaire playboy, fashion photographer, and television host whom Cohen has inhabited throughout the first season.

Remember, how former Alaska governor Sarah Palin introduced the world to "Who Is America" by posting a length Facebook rant revealing she had been duped into giving a mock interview to Cohen? "Hey, hey, hey. I didn't get away with nothing", he said.

Cohen went in for the metaphorical kill, though, with bait that his business partner was dying to meet Simpson because he wanted to know how the former Hollywood star murdered Nicole.

Christina eventually leaves the room, and Simpson comments that she's "gorgeous".

"Maybe I send her on a bungee jump. oops, the cord!"

"[My girlfriend is] gorgeous but sometimes I want to kill her", "Gio" says at one point. "We both, how you say, lady killers?" He then makes multiple references about murdering people and even name drops O.J.'s then-lawyer, Johnnie Cochran.

Cohen then gave Simpson a high-five and continued to joke about the ways he'd like to murder his girlfriend, and then alluded to having killed his fictional ex-wife. "We had been divorced", he said.

"Hey, hey, I didn't get away with nothing", Simpson said.

Simpson was released to parole October 1 after nine years in prison for leading five men, including two with guns, in a September 2007 confrontation with two sports collectibles dealers at a Las Vegas casino hotel.

Simpson was famously acquitted over the killings of Brown Simpson and Goldman in a criminal trial, but was later found liable for the pair's deaths in a civil court trial and ordered to pay $33.5m to their families.
