Almost 21 years to the day since O.J. Simpson led Los Angeles police on a low-speed chase up the 405, part of that scene was re-created, Hollywood-style, for the upcoming FX series American Crime Story.
On Wednesday in Beverly Hills, Cuba Gooding Jr., 46, who is playing Simpson, was spotted leaning out of a white Ford Bronco just like the one Simpson rode in on June 17, 1994. At the time, Simpson had been expected to turn himself in to police, but didn't appear. That evening, a police officer spotted Simpson riding north on Interstate 405.
The Bronco, driven by Simpson's friend Al Cowlings (played in the series by Malcolm-Jamal Warner), eluded police for more than an hour before returning to his Brentwood home, where he was arrested on charges of murdering his ex-wife, Nicole Brown Simpson, and her friend Ron Goldman.

Oprah's back – on the big screen, that is – in The Butler.
Based on the life of Eugene Allen, the White House head butler who served eight presidents during a 34-year career, the film stars Forest Whitaker playing a character called Cecil Gaines. Oprah plays his wife, Gloria Gaines.
As shown in the intriguing two-minute, thirty-second trailer, the OWN network mogul, 59, shows off the acting chops that once earned her an Oscar nomination, for 1985's The Color Purple.

A New Orleans female bartender who says she was shoved by Cuba Gooding Jr. won't press charges over a disruption that may have started when other restaurant patrons wanted pictures with the actor.
"While we continue to investigate this matter internally, we are hopeful that this will put an end to the matter," says Old Absinthe House spokeswoman Carolyn Pierce, according to the Associated Press.
Without a complainant, authorities formally dropped charges on Friday.
Gooding, 44, who is in New Orleans filming The Butler about the White House butler who served eight presidents, was temporarily the subject of an arrest warrant on a misdemeanor charge of municipal battery.
