Connie Britton is returning to the Ryan Murphy universe, but not for "American Horror Story" this time.
On Monday, Murphy announced via Twitter that Britton will join his upcoming FX miniseries "American Crime Story: The People v. O.J. Simpson." The "American Horror Story: Murder House" actress will portray Faye Resnick, who was a friend of Nicole Brown's and was staying in her condo days before Brown was murdered. During O.J. Simpson's trial, the former football star's defense team claimed that Brown and Ronald Goldman were murdered by drug dealers to whom Resnick alledgedly owned money.
Excited to announce my friend Connie Britton will play Faye Resnick in the upcoming FX miniseries The People v. O.J. Simpson.

Britton joins Cuba Gooding Jr., who will portray Simpson, Sarah Paulson as head prosecutor Marcia Clark and David Schwimmer as Robert Kardashian.
