OJ Simpson High Fived Sacha Baron Cohen Since They're Both 'Lady Killers'

  • Sacha Baron Cohen says he and guest O.J. Simpson are 'ladykillers' on Who Is America? finale

"No, I ain't kill nobody", Simpson said, laughing. A Twitter account for Cohen's Ruddick character appeared to confirm the Palin prank, but Showtime disputed her claim that Cohen used a fake wheelchair.

Disguised as an Italian playboy named Gio Monaldo, Baron Cohen awkwardly joked with Simpson about wanting to murder his own girlfriend, and tried unsuccessfully to get the former National Football League great to admit to killing his ex-wife, Nicole Brown Simpson.

Alternatively, you can binge-watch Showtime programs including Sacha Baron Cohen's Who is America? for free by signing up for a Showtime seven-day free trial.

Cohen, who is known for creating outrageous and controversial characters like Borat, Ali G and Bruno, took a look at American patriotism in his new series for Showtime. Again, Simpson laughed but told him to stop. The segment continues on and, after the young woman leaves Monaldo and Simpson to talk among themselves, Monaldo kids about how he sometimes just wants to kill his girlfriend. After Simpson said he'd have to introduce him to his late lawyer in the afterlife, Gio replied, "What?"

Finally, Cohen's character says his business partner would like a one-on-one meeting with Simpson. O.J. denied he could reveal any details about their murder, contending: "Well, first of all, she wasn't my wife".

In another segment on the show, Cohen disguised himself as Trump supporter Dr. Billy Wayne Ruddick Jr.

"Cut the cord extra long", Simpson replied. "You didn't kill him too, did you?"

"Stop! Jesus Christ, man!"

Gio told Simpson that they have at least one thing in common: They're both "lady killers". "We want you to be 100 per cent truthful about how you got away with it", Monaldo added. "I didn't "get away" with nothing".

"You weren't charged, so good for you", said Simpson.

While Baron Cohen failed to elicit a confession from Simpson, he did manage to give one last jab to Sarah Palin in the show's credits, giving her props for being a "Special Publicity Consultant (Inadvertent)". You know, it be no longer what it sounds admire.

Simpson, who was acquitted on criminal murder charges in 1995, was found liable two years later in civil court and ordered to pay $33.5 million in damages to the Brown and Goldman families.

In July, Palin came out publicly to say she had been duped by Baron Cohen, but her interview never aired. Palin said Cohen was "heavily disguised" as a disabled US veteran with "a fake wheelchair".
