Double-take: Kris and Selma bump into each other on the red-carpet

She’s due to play Kris Jenner in a forthcoming TV series dramatising the OJ Simpson trial, and now Selma Blair has bumped into her the woman herself on the red-carpet.

Both were in attendance at the at the Children’s Justice Campaign Event in Beverly Hills yesterday.

Fittingly, the duo were dressed in almost-matching black attire (Selma opted for a playsuit; Kris stuck with a dress), and they also happily posed up for photographs side-by-side.

Kris, 59, and Selma, 42, even whipped out their phones to capture a few selfies.

On Monday, the actress was confirmed as playing the role of Kris in American Crime Story: The People V OJ Simpson.

Ms Blair told reporters at the Beverly Hills event that she was “very excited” to portray Jenner in the television mini-series. “She’s such a presence,” she said.

“People do say I look like Kris,” the Legally Blonde star also acknowledged.

Kris was equally gushing about Selma, commenting: “I think she’s great. I’m a big fan.”

Cuba Golding will play OJ in the series, while John Travolta will star as Robert Shapiro. Former Friends star David Schwimmer has been confirmed as taking on the role of Robert Kardashian.

The OJ Simpson trial, during which the former professional footballer and actor was found not-guilty of murdering his ex-wife Nicole Brown Simpson and her friends Ronald L Goldman, took place in 1995. It remains one of the most absorbing and controversial cases in US legal history. 

The TV series is due to premier next year and begins filming in Los Angeles later this month.
