In his recent interview with Chris Wallace, the Avatar director shot down all the rumors that O. J. Simpson was originally considered for the lead role. “I said, ‘Well, no, I’m not.’ He said, ‘Are you sitting? O.J.

He said that one of the funding parties did propose the idea, but he instantly denied it.
