OJ Simpson Lands 20k To Star in Film With Sacha Baron Cohen

The actor wore a silly disguise to meet Simpson in a hotel room.

Is OJ Simpson making a Hollywood return?

Funnyman Sacha Baron Cohen has paid the former jailbird $20K to star in his upcoming film!

According to a report, the actor wore a silly disguise to meet Simpson inside a Las Vegas hotel room, in order to discuss their agreement.

“O.J. would not even get in the hotel room until he was paid a sackload of cash,” a source told reporters.

There was no way Sacha could have got O.J. into the room without paying money.”

While neither Cohen nor Simpson’s reps have spoken out about the alleged deal and meeting, the former NFL star previously told reporters about Cohen: “I know him well. I met him. Nice guy.”

OJ Simpson, 70, was released from prison this past October, after serving nine years behind bars.

He was sent to jail after being convicted of an armed-robbery. He is most known, however, for having been found innocent in the 1994 murder of wife Nicole Brown and her pal, Ron Goldman.Hearing of the ex-convict’s alleged Hollywood return, the families of the deceased voiced their anger to reporters.

If Simpson did get paid by Cohen, then the money should be used to pay his civil-judgment debt, said David Cook, a collections lawyer who works for Goldman’s dad, Fred.

“Paying money — cash no less — in secret to O.J. Simpson is 100 percent unadulterated sleaze,” Cook told The Post. “This is nuts.”

Nicole’s sister, Tanya Brown, was horrified that someone might want to pay Simpson.

“Nicole and Ron are two human beings who were brutally murdered,” she told The Mail. “This is not a joke, nor is it entertainment.”
