Sacha Baron Cohen attempts to coax murder confession from O.J. Simpson

When that doesn't work, Cohen's character makes apparent stabbing motions and the girlfriend finally understands who Simpson is. For this particular installment, Cohen disguises himself as Gio Monaldo in order to sit down with former National Football League player, actor, and convicted robber, O.J.

Remember, how former Alaska governor Sarah Palin introduced the world to "Who Is America" by posting a length Facebook rant revealing she had been duped into giving a mock interview to Cohen? He laughed along as Gio said things like, "Me and you, we got something in common".

"She knows that, oh Jesus", Simpson says as he laughs.

At first, Cohen meets Simpson with a female he claims is his girlfriend. It clip ended abruptly, but based off Simpson's body language and repeated requests for Cohen to "stop", it is safe to assume that at some point it was all too much for Simpson.Cohen tweeted out that this was the last episode "EVER".

Famous for creating a roster of iconic moments and incendiary characters, Baron Cohen returned to series television for the first time in more than a decade, writing and directing Who is America?

"If I do (kill her), you introduce to me (Johnnie) Cochran", Baron Cohen joked.


O.J. was arrested and charged with the murders of Nicole and Ron in 1994.

And, according to Entertainment Weekly, throughout the entire interview Simpson had no idea that it was 46-year-old Cohen in disguise.

The show was compared frequently to Baron Cohen's previous show Da Ali G Show.

He then broached the subject of Nicole's murder by saying they were both "ladykillers" - prompting O.J.to state: "No, I didn't kill nobody".

"Hey, hey, I didn't get away with nothing", Simpson said. "In Italian it translate to somebody who murders women".

Simpson was famously acquitted over the killings of Brown Simpson and Goldman in a criminal trial, but was later found liable for the pair's deaths in a civil court trial and ordered to pay $33.5m to their families.
