Trivia that mentions this person:
The Terminator [1984]
  • O.J. Simpson was considered for the role of the Terminator, but the producers feared he was "too nice" to be taken seriously as a cold-blooded killer.
    The Naked Gun 2: The Smell of Fear [1991]
  • 'Weird Al' Yankovic has a brief role as a thug who holds the police at the precinct at gunpoint. In the scene, he says, "Ok, Pigs, say your prayers!" followed by Frank slamming the door open and knocking Yankovic's character to the floor. Yankovic said it took more than 20 takes to get the scene done, and that after about 16 takes his leg had turned "a nice shade of purple". The stunt coordinator asked Yankovic at that point if he wanted to wear some padding. Yankovic also recalled that O.J. Simpson felt sorry for him.
    The Naked Gun: From the Files of Police Squad [1988]
  • The name for O.J. Simpson's character, Nordberg, was taken from a manufacturing company in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. The Nordberg plant was located at Oklahoma and Chase Avenues and featured a huge "Nordberg" sign visible to passers-by on Highway 94. The factory was purchased by Metso Minerals and has since closed in 2004.
