Sacha Baron Cohen says he and guest O.J. Simpson are 'ladykillers' on Who Is America? finale

Comedian Sacha Baron Cohen's Showtime series Who Is America? has seen plenty of freaky hidden-camera interviews of politicians and celebrities, but one of the strangest came in Sunday's finale with Baron Cohen's interview with O.J. Simpson. Simpson on Sunday's final episode of "Who Is America?".

O.J. didn't take quite the bait, but it was pretty close as Sacha went undercover as fictional Italian playboy Gio Monaldo and joked about killing his gf, who pretended she had no idea who Simpson was. that is until Sacha makes knife-to-throat gestures.

For the season finale, Baron Cohen, under the guise of an Italian billionaire and famed photographer named Gio Monaldo, interviewed OJ Simpson for a show called "The Diamond Life of Gio", which highlights the lives of the immensely wealthy and famous.

"She knows that", Simpson said, laughing.

First "Gio" attempts to introduce Simpson to his much younger, attractive girlfriend, who fails to recognize the former Buffalo Bills running back until he makes stabbing motions at her chest. Simpson said. "Help me!"

Trump declares emergency as hurricane menaces Hawaii
Warnings have been posted for the Big Island and Maui, and the effects of Lane are expected to be felt starting Wednesday night. Authorities say two campers are trapped in a Hawaii valley that has been hit by heavy rain from an approaching hurricane.

Cohen tricked a number of public figures throughout the series, including former Arizona Sheriff Joe Arpaio, former Vice President Dick Cheney, O.J. Simpson and several Republican lawmakers. You're not the O.J. the movie star.

Speaking of which: how did you feel about Who Is America?

Gio asks to be introduced to Simpson's defense lawyer, Johnnie Cochran (who died in 2005), and Simpson says, "I would have to introduce you in the afterlife". Then, Monaldo mimes a stabbing motion and it clicks instantly: Oh, that O.J. Simpson! "We had been divorced and separated for two years", Simpson replied.

However, his jovial demeanor and the high five that he offered Baron Cohen seemed incriminating enough to us. "[We're] both - how you say it - lady killers". But ultimately, the joke was on Palin: Cohen never even ran the segment that featured her, meaning all she did was generate untold headlines about the show and provide it all sorts of free publicity.

Christina eventually leaves the room, and Simpson comments that she's "gorgeous".
