Sacha Baron Cohen's Interview with OJ Simpson: Nothing but Cringeworthy

In the episode, OJ sits down for an interview with Gio Monaldo, an alleged Italian billionaire playboy (actually Baron Cohen in prosthetics and a ponytail, ofc).

The interview ended with some on-the-surface sympathy from Cohen's character: "You're not O.J. the touchdown".

Famous for creating a roster of iconic moments and incendiary characters, Baron Cohen returned to series television for the first time in more than a decade, writing and directing Who is America?

However, a particular segment from the latest and final episode of the satirical show seems to have taken the cake.

It was during this meeting that Monaldo, joined by his Italian girlfriend Christina, tried to get a confession out of the former athlete, asking him what happened the night his wife died and how he "got away" with it.

Simpson repeatedly told Gio to "stop" making stabbing references (at one point, Cohen's character asked if he should hide the knives from the cheese plate in front of them) but was laughing throughout, and even high-fived the comedian, but he never fell for the ultimate trap of confessing.

"She's gorgeous but sometimes I want to kill her, you know", Gio said with a laugh. He added: "I want to send her on a private helicopter tour over the Grand Canyon - oops-a-daisy".

O.J. then laughingly replies: "I ain't kill nobody".

Gio told Simpson that they have at least one thing in common: they're both "ladykillers".

After Christina left the room, Simpson told Monaldo that she was "gorgeous".

And, according to Entertainment Weekly, throughout the entire interview Simpson had no idea that it was 46-year-old Cohen in disguise.

"I didn't get away with anything with my wife, either".

However, Simpson laughed and said, "No, I didn't kill nobody".

Simpson insisted he only wanted to retrieve personal mementos and items that were stolen from him following his acquittal in Los Angeles in the 1994 slayings of his ex-wife, Nicole Brown Simpson, and her friend, Ronald Goldman.

Last year, Simpson was released from prison on parole after spending a decade behind bars in relation to a Las Vegas armed robbery.
