Actor-prankster Sacha Baron Cohen paid O.J. Simpson more than $20,000 to appear in his next movie.
The casting choice has angered the families of Nicole Brown Simpson and Ron Goldman.
Sacha is best known for creating movie characters such as Ali G and Borat. A production source said Cohen wore a wig and thick-rimmed glasses to meet the football legend-turned-ex-con inside a Las Vegas hotel room.
The source said, “O.J. would not even get in the hotel room until he was paid a sackload of cash. There was no way Sacha could have got O.J. into the room without paying money.”
A rep for Cohen could not be reached for comment, but when O.J. was asked about the filmmaker, he simply said, “I know him well. I met him. Nice guy.”
OJ Simpson was released from prison in October.
