1If the Brown and Goldman families wanted to hit O.J. (Simpson) where he lived, instead of suing for $33 million, they might have ordered him to take that money and produce NO PLACE TO HIDE PART 2. That *really* would have been going for his jugular.
2I don't like to be known for the OJ trial and now I'm overcoming it. But it's been six years, and I've had a SAG card over 17 years. People should realize that I shot a Coke commercial back in 1986. So, you know, I've been around a long time. I carry my Screen Actors Guild Card. - Interview, 2001
