The stars of new movie  American Crime Story: The People v. O.J. Simpson were photographed on set in spitting images of the late Robert Kardashian Sr. and celebrity siblings Khloe, Kim, Kourtney and Robert Kardashian. 

The actors are almost doppelgangers to the throwback photos the sisters often post; wearing bows and dresses in bright colors. Schwimmer even has the same pink-button down shirt and suit that Robert Kardashian Snr. donned on Sundays.

The film is based on the book The Run of His Life: The People v. O.J. Simpson by Jeffrey Tobin. It follows the infamous 1995 murder trial of O.J. Simpson from the perspective of the lawyers. Robert Kardashian Snr. served as Simpson's attorney during his trial. 

Schwimmer was able to interview Kris Jenner, and found the experience insightful and rewarding: "I was lucky enough to speak to [Kris Jenner] for a few hours, who was very generous with her time," Schwimmer told the Associated Press at the Fox Upfronts in NYC this past May. "I thought, `Who better to tell me who Robert was as a husband and a father than her?' And it's been a very exciting process so far."

Selma Blair is set to play the momager Kris Jenner, and Cuba Gooding Jr. will act as Simpson.
