We have been just as much captivated by American Crime Story: The People Vs. OJ Simpson as we were the first time it was televised.

On October 3 1995, 150 million people tuned in to watch the verdict of Simpson’s trial – making it one of the most watched events in television history.

Once known as a football running back, O.J. Simpson’s trial changed what he was renowned for.

Now, two decades later, we take a look at the actors who played the key people involved in the trial and where the originals are now.

The trial ended with Simpson being acquitted of both murders, yet he still forked out $33.5 million to the victims families for their wrongful deaths.

Unfortunately for the families, we’re sure the money wouldn’t have been payment enough, and much of the money still remains unpaid.
