Ryan Murphy's real-crime anthology series "American Crime Story" has finally found its lawyer.

David Schwimmer is the latest actor to join "The People v. O.J. Simpson," the first season of the upcoming series that will follow Simpson's 1995 murder trial. The "Friends" alum will portray Robert Kardashian, Simpson's friend and lawyer during the case. The 10-episode first season will star Cuba Gooding Jr. as the former football player and Sarah Paulson as head prosecutor Marcia Clark.

The season will tell the story from the perspective of the lawyers and recount the police department's history with the African-American community in Los Angeles at the time. The first episode will be directed by Murphy, who will also co-executive produce with Brad Falchuk.
