On Sunday night's possible last episode of the Showtime comedy, Cohen, disguised as one of his characters, interviewed none of other than former football star, former actor, and former murder suspect O.J. Simpson.

Sacha Baron Cohen's quest to answer the question of Who Is America? has come to an end.

However, Simpson laughed and said, "No, I didn't kill nobody".

After Christina left the room, Simpson told Monaldo that she was "gorgeous".

Spurs struck twice inside the first seven minutes of the second half as they maintained their 100 percent record. That was the last reporters heard from Mourinho , as he got up from his seat and stormed out of the hall.

The 71-year-old ex-sportsman, who was acquitted of killing Nicole in 1995 after a trial that fascinated and divided America, believed he was talking to "Gio Monaldo", a wealthy fashion photographer. Gio explains to his girlfriend Christina that Simpson, who he calls a "women's rights activist", was a Buffalo Bill and appeared in the "Naked Gun" films. It wasn't until Monaldo feigned a stabbing motion toward her neck that she recognized Simpson: "Oh mamma mia, O.J.", she said before extending her hand to greet him.

Someone who wasn't featured on the finale was former vice-presidential candidate Sarah Palin, who earlier this summer has spoken out about being tricked by Cohen.

He then broached the subject of Nicole's murder by saying they were both "ladykillers" - prompting O.J.to state: "No, I didn't kill nobody".

Nine other people were wounded by gunfire and all were in stable condition Sunday evening after going to hospitals, Williams said. Another video, this of a game being livestream, captures the sounds of the first set of gunshots and the reactions that follow.

"We want you to be completely truthful with how you got away with it", Cohen pressed on as Monaldo.

In July, Palin started a media storm, claiming on Facebook she had been "duped" by Baron Cohen and "fallen victim to the evil, exploitive (sic), sick "humour" " during an interview, which ultimately did not air.

The cheeky nod to Palin as a publicity consultant highlights the attention she brought to the show while trying to deflect attention for what would likely have been a damaging interview for her image.
