O.J. Simpson has been making headlines after it was recently announced that he was approached about a new movie role. Apparently, Simpson might be appearing in an upcoming Sasha Baron Cohen film and was paid $20,000 for the meeting, according to Fox News.
Apparently, Sacha Baron Cohen traveled to Las Vegas to meet with Simpson this weekend. The actor apparently arrived at the hotel in a disguise, wearing a curly wig and dark glasses, and had to pay money in order to meet with him.
Simpson, who owes money to the families of Ron Goldman and Nicole Brown Simpson, is likely to cause drama if this alleged acting gig is accepted. And it is certainly causing an uproar that he received thousands of dollars for this meeting about the possibility of appearing in a new movie.
O.J. Simpson was acquitted of allegedly murdering Nicole, his former wife, and Goldman, who was her friend. The Brown and Goldman family won a civil judgment against the former NFL player two years later, causing Simpson to owe the family a mighty $70 million.
Fox News writes that Cohen is a "prankster" and enjoys stunts, but that his alleged speaking with Simpson about a movie role was deemed inappropriate by many people.
KTNB Las Vegas reports that people on social media generally aren't happy about the idea of seeing O.J. Simpson on the big screen.
In recent news, shots were fired right outside the National Security Agency.
