Simpson be let out early from his current stint in a Reno, Nev., jail, he could be Anger Management-bound. “O.J. would play a thinly veiled version of himself — a famous con who’s pissed off about being unjustly incarcerated,” Simpson’s promoter Norman Pardo tells the New York Post. UPDATE: FX execs have since nixed the report, telling the Los Angeles Times: “It will never happen.”
