Sacha Baron Cohen's Who Is America? wrapped with an OJ Simpson interview

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

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

O.J. denied he could reveal any details about their murder, contending: "Well, first of all, she wasn't my wife".

Stop the planet, I want to get off.

Sacha Baron Cohen saved pranking one of the most notorious public figures for last, interviewing O.J.

Still in character as Monaldo, the comedian even tried to get Simpson to empathise with him by sharing a fake story about his "girlfriend" Christina, who he wanted to stab.

The former athlete did not take the bait. "And second of all, I didn't do it", the 71-year-old replied, adding, "I didn't "get away" with nothing".

In 1994 Simpson was charged with murdering his ex-wife, Nicole Brown Simpson, and her friend, Ron Goldman, but was famously found not guilty.

Simpson was found liable for the killings in 1997 and ordered by a California civil court jury to pay $33.5 million to victims' families.

Saudi Arabia has called off Aramco float, reports suggest
That will replace at least some of the money the Public Investment Fund had been expected to receive from the Aramco IPO. Crown Prince Mohammed first made the plans public in January 2016, when he was still the kingdom's deputy crown prince.

Simpson was released to parole October 1 after nine years in prison for leading five men, including two with guns, in a September 2007 confrontation with two sports collectibles dealers at a Las Vegas casino hotel. He served a 9-year-prison sentence for the botched crime. "So nice to meet you!"

"Cohen also responded to Palin in a letter written in character as Ruddick, writing: "I only fought for my country once - when I shot a Mexican who came onto my property".

After she left the room, the pair delved into some painful stabbing jokes, no pun intended. "Maybe I send her on a bungee jump, you know, oh the cord!"

"No I didn't kill nobody!" 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.

In the first segment, Frank sat opposite Cohen, disguised as conservative conspiracy theorist Billy Wayne Ruddick Jr., who runs the fictional TRUTHBRARY.org.

While the said segment did not make it to the show, Cohen did give a special shout out to the former Republican vice-presidential candidate.
