Sacha Baron Cohen Dupes O.J. Simpson in 'Disturbing' Season Finale of 'Who Is America?'

Playing Sacha Baron Cohen Tries to Get O.J. Simpson to Confess on ‘Who Is America?’

O.J. Simpson is comedian Sacha Baron Cohen’s latest painfully awkward interview for his Showtime show, "Who Is America?" 

“We got something in common," the British comic, disguised as alter-ego Gio Monaldo, tells the disgraced former NFL player. "We both, how you say, lady killers?"

During the interview, which aired Sunday, Simpson apparently thought he was talking to an Italian playboy for a show called "The Diamond Life of Gio." The meeting with Simpson inside a Las Vegas hotel room was recorded on a hidden camera.

At one point Cohen, as Monaldo, referred to Simpson as a "women’s rights activist." 

The comedian was able to get a rise out of Simpson after saying that a friend of his wanted to know what happened to Nicole Brown Simpson. 

"Well, first off, she wasn’t my wife, we had been divorced we had been separated for two years,” Simpson explains.

"We want you to be 100-percent truthful how you got away with it," Cohen asks.

"Hey, hey, hey — I didn’t get away with nothing," Simpson snapped back. "I didn’t kill nobody!"

O.J. Simpson was acquitted of murder in the death of Nicole Brown Simpson and her friend, Ronald Goldman, in 1995.

Simpson was released from prison in October 2017 after serving nine years in Nevada's Lovelock Correctional Center for armed robbery. He is reportedly living in Las Vegas. 

His parole period ends in 2022. 

Simpson is the latest in a string of high-profile pranks Cohen has pulled off for "Who Is America?" Past episodes featured him fooling the likes of Dick Cheney, Sarah Palin and Roy Moore.
