Cuba Gooding Jr. offers insight after playing OJ Simpson

CHICAGO (FOX 32 News) - It's the series everyone is talking about :"The People vs. O.J. Simpson."

The series is already breaking ratings records, with over 5 million viewers it was the most watched series premiere in the history of FX.

But FOX got the chance to speak with the cast about bigger issues surrounding the series, and Oscar-winner Cuba Gooding Jr., who plays OJ Simpson, has a theory about the inner workings of OJ. 

The series is being hailed for its sharp sense of authenticity, but for many of the actors, they didn't need to meet with their real life subjects in order to nail their performances.

There are nine episodes left of the limited series.
