David Schwimmer is the latest addition to the ever-expanding Kardashian clan – or at least he will be on TV.

The actor, 48, will be portraying the late Robert Kardashian on FX's upcoming miniseries about the O.J. Simpson trial, American Crime Story: The People v. O.J. Simpson, based on Jeffrey Toobin's best-selling book The Run of His Life: The People v. O.J. Simpson.

Schwimmer will star opposite Cuba Gooding Jr., 46, as O.J. Simpson and Sarah Paulson, 40, as Prosecutor Marcia Clark. The series will tell the story of the "trial of the century" from the perspective of the lawyers involved.

The new miniseries will be produced by Glee and American Horror Story's Ryan Murphy and is set to begin production in L.A. early next year.

"The O.J. case was as tragic as it was fascinating – it seemed like everyone had a stake in the outcome," Murphy told The Hollywood Reporter. "This is an exciting project for me, as I ve been looking for the right property which could serve as an extension of the American Horror Story brand I love so much."

We wonder what Kim Kardashian thinks of the casting!
