I totally agree. Ezra is fantastic. Although I haven't seen as much OJ footage as Ezra, I totally get what he (and Marcia, too) was saying about how OJ is flat out the greatest actor in American history. 

 

And not just the civil court but the Nevada court as well. It's amazing how Nevada made him pay for the murder. Does anyone think he'll be released on parole next year?

Yes, yes he can. And he normally does that on the golf course. Rotten SOB.

You're welcome! There's also a good one that the three of them did with AOL if you're interested.
 

 

 

I had not seen one interview before you posted these two links. Thank you Matthew.

 

I love love love this Erza. What an intelligent honest man. He will do great things going forward and you can tell he really has a lot of respect for Marsha.

 

With that said, Carl Douglass appears to be a nervous wreck in the above interview. It was either really hot in that room or he is not comfortable to this day in his own defense. I respect the job the defense team did and I do understand their position when they walk into a court of law. I wonder and I can't remember if the judge continued practicing after this trial. I would have loved for Erza to have gotten him into the film. I think that would have been really interesting to know the why's behind some of his decisions during the case. Do you know if he was asked to partake?

You're welcome! There are more interviews that Ezra did that are on YouTube. The only one I can think of at the moment is a MSNBC one with Chris Hayes. I'm sure I'll think of others later on. I am really looking forward to seeing what he'll work on next. 

 

About Carl not being comfortable, I can see him still not being comfortable to this day with his own defense. I feel like he kind of has to stand by what he's said, but I'm sure he is able to clearly see all the doubt and speculation over the verdict. Like you, I respect the defense team. The way they fought to get him innocent is incredible. Yeah, Judge Ito did continue to practice after this trial. He actually retired just last year. I don't know if he was asked to partake in the documentary. I would imagine he was approached, but declined. Maybe similar to how Ezra approached Carl. I only say that because Carl had said he only accepted to be in the documentary after he talked to Ezra and the producers multiple times about what would be covered.

 

Oh yeah... OJ was a godawful rapper! haha. I had no idea about the stuff he did post trial. The things he did... wow.

I think this thing won the Oscar for best documentary. Or was it best actress in a Doc film?

Also, I just came across this article and am planning on reading it. Seems really interesting
