Lisa Rinna as Kris Jenner could be the most amazing casting choice of all time.
A new report states the ‘Real Housewives of Beverly Hills’ star has signed on to portray the momager in the upcoming miniseries 'American Crime Story,' which centers on the O.J. Simpson murder trial in the '90s.
“Producers believe that Lisa is perfect to play the part of Kris in the cable production,” a source said via ‘Radar Online.’ “The current plan is to turn the Kardashian family segments into high camp comedy, with winking references to their current fame.”

The insider added, “Lisa will only appear in two or three episodes, but the producers want the publicity that will come from hiring Lisa to camp up Kris’ role in the O.J. saga!”

David Schwimmer is set to portray Kris' late ex-husband and O.J.'s defense attorney, Robert Kardashian, Sr. Other cast members include Cuba Gooding Jr. (O.J.), John Travolta (Robert Shapiro), Connie Britton (Faye Resnick) and Sarah Paulson (Marcia Clark).
This new anthology series comes from the mastermind of Ryan Murphy, who brought us 'American Horror Story' and 'Glee.' The first season of 'American Crime Story' will focus on O.J., while other potential seasons will revolve around other high-profile cases.
