The leading men of Broadway join the previously announced cast of Cuba Gooding Jr. playing Simpson, David Schwimmer, John Travolta, Courtney B. Vance, Sarah Paulson, Jordana Brewster and Selma Blair.

Kaelin was staying at Simpson's property at the time of the murder, while Fuhrman was famously convicted for perjury for testimony he gave during the murder trial. The 10-episode drama is based off the novel by Jeffrey Toobin "The Run of His Life: The People V. O.J. Simpson" and, said to now be shooting in LA, is slated for a release in 2016.

Pasquale, who is featured on "The Good Wife" has also appeared on Broadway in The Bridges of Madison County and Reasons to be Pretty. Magnussen's Broadway credits include Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike, for which he was Tony Award nominated, and The Ritz. He most recently played the role of Rapunzel's prince in the hit film adaptation of the Stephen Sondheim classic, "Into the Woods," released last year.
