The court of internet opinion is in session, and in the case of best Halloween group costume we rule in favor of The New Girl cast for their spot-on take on The People v. O.J. Simpson. Though Fox will not be airing a special October-31-themed episode of the sitcom owing to the World Series schedule, the costumes will appear in a Christmas-centric flashback episode that will air later this year. Luckily, we don't have to wait until December to see the gang in their early-'90s courtroom best because creator Liz Meriwether posted a picture on Twitter.
The costumes nicely align to fit the characters' personalities: goody-goody Jess (Zooey Deschanel) is Marcia Clark with police officer Winston (Lamorne Morris) at her side as Christopher Darden; Schmidt (Max Greenfield) just needed a broad tie with a bold pattern to be Robert Shapiro and Nick (Jake Johnson), likewise, just needed a streak of white hair to be Robert Kardashian; which leaves level-headed Cece (Hannah Simone) as Judge Lance Ito. After winning big at the Emmys, maybe now American Crime Story can also win big at True American.
Happy Halloween from New Girl as People vs OJ. SEND pic.twitter.com/0QYhRKBiEG— Liz Meriwether (@lizmeriwether) October 31, 2016
