There was a time when OJ Simpson was on top of the world. Aside from being a tremendous football player, he was also an excellent actor, too. What many people do not know is that OJ was thought of first for the main role in the original ‘Terminator’ movie.
After long debates, the studio producing the movie felt that OJ was too nice of a person to play this role. They felt that the audience would not believe the story because they will not believe the main character.
Ironically, OJ Simpson ended up being involved in a few different murders. He went to jail several times, and the public no longer looks him as a nice person.
When the people of the studio were exposed to all of this, they wished they did let OJ play the part. Possibly, he could have taken all his anger out on playing a good role in the movie. Maybe he would not be where he is today, but it still is possible that he could still very well be where he is today.
Knowing OJ was supposed to play this role does have the African-American community in an uproar. However, they have a right to feel this way because this happens all the time. Studios choose one race over the other and give a bogus reason for this. This story, however, is factual. The entire studio was pushing for OJ to play this part. It was two to four people that did not agree with this decision.
