Cuba Gooding Jr. Re-Creates O.J. Simpson's 1994 Car Chase for American Crime Story

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.

Close your eyes and imagine a simpler time: 20 years ago, when there were only 60 channels on cable TV and no such thing as an iPhone, or an iPad, or an iAnything. It's the summer of 1994, emojis are an unknown entity, and Butterfinger BBs are plentiful. Sheryl Crow is spinning on your walkman, and life is good.

The 4 Most Popular O.J. Simpson Conspiracy Theories

If the Theory Doesn't Fit, You Must Acquit: The 4 Most Popular O.J. Conspiracy Theories

Originally posted 06/14/2014 09:15PM

Two decades after one of the most polarizing trials in American history, our nation has generally settled on a consensus about the O.J. Simpson trial: 1) He probably did it, and, 2) The LAPD blew the case by mishandling forensic evidence.

But as with other news events where objective truth has become buried under years of gossip and rumor, the murders of Nicole Brown Simpson and Ronald Goldman have attracted a fair share of experts who are convinced they've figured out what really happened June 12, 1994. Perhaps that's a consequence of a cultural flashpoint where nobody on either side of the debate got any semblance of closure.

No matter if they're serious journalists or Internet crackpots, all Simpson conspiracy theorists are convinced they can do what a year of courtroom drama could not: Crack the case, once and for all.

Before it was about the mother of slow-speed car chases, an N-word-spouting detective, The Tonight Show's Dancing Itos or a glove that, on the day, did not fit, the O.J. Simpson case was about the June 12, 1994, slayings of two innocent people: Nicole Brown Simpson and Ronald Goldman.
