"We're Both Ladykillers": Sacha Baron Cohen Tries To Get OJ Simpson Murder Confession On 'Who Is America'
The Borat actor interviewed the Juice for the season finale of his television series Who Is America.
During the show's season finale, Sacha Baron Cohen, disguised as an Italian photographer named Gio Monaldo, and his girlfriend sit down with Simpson for an interview in Las Vegas. Initially, Cohen tries to get his girlfriend to recognize Simpson, with Cohen referring to his time as a Buffalo Bill athlete and an actor in the Naked Gun films. It isn't until Cohen makes repeated stabbing motions with his hands that she recognizes him.
From there, Cohen's girlfriend leaves, leading to him telling a series of jokes about wanting to kill her in an attempt to get Simpson to agree with him.
"She's gorgeous, but sometimes I want to kill her," Cohen says according to The Atlantic. "I want to send her on a private helicopter and throw her over the Grand Canyon — oopsie daisy!"
Although Cohen manages to get a high-five out of Simpson he repeatedly tells the actor to stop.
"Me and you, we got something in common," Cohen says toward the end of the interview. "We both, how you say, 'ladykillers.'"
"No, I didn't kill nobody," Simpson replies, laughing.
Cohen recently revealed via TV Guide that Who Is America? won't be returning for a second season.
