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.
