Selma Blair Makes A Really Convincing Kris Jenner

It's way too early to start handing out Emmys, but if there were an award for most convincing transformation, Selma Blair would be the hot favorite. 

Behind-the-scenes photos have emerged of the actress in character as Kris Jenner, high priestess of all things Kardashian. Blair and David Schwimmer will play Kris and Robert Kardashian (a.k.a. the parents of Kim, Kourtney, and Khloe) in Ryan Murphy's TV dramatization of the O.J. Simpson trial, American Crime Story. Robert Kardashian, who died in 2003, was one of the NFL star's attorneys. 

John Travolta and Cuba Gooding Jr. will also star in the FX drama. Early photos show Schwimmer with the signature Kardashian streak of gray hair at the crown, while Blair looks eerily convincing as his then-wife. That pixie, that LBD, those shoulder pads...it's uncanny. 

Kudos to the casting director and the hair and makeup team. To think, we'd actually be clamoring for more Kardashians on TV.
