Ex-NFL star and actor O.J. Simpson is to appear in the upcoming third instalment of the Bad Boys trilogy, Bad Boys For Life, it has been revealed.

Concerned that Bad Boys II wasn’t quite “bad enough”, executive producer Jerry Bruckheimer decided that Simpson, or ‘The Juice’, would lend the movie some much needed street cred.

Currently serving a 33-year sentence in Lovelock Correctional Center for armed robbery and kidnapping, Simpson will be allowed to the set for day visits.

The co-star of The Naked Gun trilogy will play the role of a crooked detective who plants evidence in crime scenes, in order to get white men convicted of felonies that they didn’t commit.

Asked about wardrobe requirements, Simpson replied, “Make sure they get my glove size right.”
