Sacha Baron Cohen's sit-down with O.J. Simpson is painfully awkward

Sacha Baron Cohen says he and guest O.J. Simpson are 'ladykillers' on Who Is America? finale

Simpson, arguably America's most notorious criminal, all while disguised as character Gio Monaldo. You're not the O.J. the movie star.

The finale episode for "Who Is America?" did not exactly go off without a hitch; the much-anticipated Sarah Palin interview in which Cohen posed as a wounded veteran to get her attention was shelved following severe backlash. Palin told "Good Morning America" last month that the interview was "bizarre, really embarrassing, humiliating". "But see CBS and Showtime, they're going to be pimping this thing hard, so they're going to hear about it, anyway".

In July, Palin started a media storm, claiming on Facebook she had been "duped" by Baron Cohen and "fallen victim to the evil, exploitive (sic), sick "humour" " during an interview, which ultimately did not air.

Cohen, as Monaldo, also says he wants to be introduced to Simpson's defence lawyer, Johnnie Cochran. Dressed as the millionaire Italian photographer, Cohen had no qualms asking the former athlete about his deceased ex-wife, Nicole Brown Simpson.

"Me and you, we got something in common", Cohen's character said, per THR. Now that it's reached its totally-final conclusion, what do you think we learned, if anything?

Cohen then gave Simpson a high-five and continued to joke about the ways he'd like to murder his girlfriend, and then alluded to having killed his fictional ex-wife. "She's gorgeous, but sometimes I want to kill her", he admitted in character as Gio.

The rumours are still being circulated on Twitter, with journalist Mootaz Chehade also noting their interest. But when he has a team like Napoli that was doing well, he was playing well and he was close, he was close.

"Cord extra long", Simpson offered.

"Maybe I send her on a bungee jump - oops, the cord!"

Unlike some other celebrities and politicians - including Roy Moore, Joe Arpaio, Dick Cheney, and more - Simpson didn't fall for Baron Cohen's tricks. As far as he knows, he's just murdered someone - and all he can manage to say afterward is, "I've never participated in someone's death".

"He's obsessed about what happened the night with the wife and he wants you to tell him", Gio said.

OJ Simpson, whose fame originally stemmed from his athletic career but later became notoriety after he was accused of killing his wife and her lover, was the subject of a circus-like murder trial.
