A story on the 10th anniversary of the O.J. Simpson verdict notes his recent plans:
Last year, on the 10th anniversary of the murders, he told Fox News that he was about to re-enter public life with a TV show in which he would pull practical jokes on unsuspecting victims. On a scale of one to 10, "it's 7 or 8 that it's gonna happen," he said. It never happened.
I haven't seen much reality TV since Married by America perfected the form, but I'd watch an alleged double murderer being sprung on unsuspecting prank victims. O.J. would be the new Allen Funt, who had to go off-camera towards the end of his Candid Camera days because he was scaring the hell out of people.
If Juic'd became a hit, think of the copycats it would spawn: Kobe Bryant runs a rape crisis hotline! Roman Polanski teaches junior high girl's soccer! John Bolton serves as U.N. ambassador!
