Los Angeles - Kris Jenner thinks it's "wild" David Schwimmer is playing her late ex-husband Robert Kardashian in The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story.

The 60-year-old reality star "really appreciated" the 49-year-old actor calling her as part of his research into the lawyer and is amazed someone her former spouse - who died of cancer in 2003 - was ''a big fan of'' landed the role.

She said: "David Schwimmer called me before they started filming to get a little bit of insight into Robert Kardashian as a person, and I really appreciated it... 

"He was so amazing and really great, and Robert Kardashian was such a big fan of David Schwimmer so that's what was wild to me. 

"If you had told me 30 years ago that I would be having a conversation with David Schwimmer about playing Robert Kardashian while I was watching Friends, I would have said, 'Are you crazy?'"

Selma Blair will play Kris in the mini-series and the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star was "excited" by her casting.

She said: ''She's such a great girl, an amazing actor. I was excited she was chosen to play me. She nails it... She actually said to me they went as far as to actually get the right manicure, too.''

Meanwhile, Kris also admitted she had been tuning in to her former spouse Caitlyn Jenner's reality show I Am Cait.

Speaking about the programme, which followed the former Olympian after her transition, she said during a panel discussion on pop culture at NATPE in Miami: "I did watch a few of the episodes and thought they came out really good, and so it's interesting for other people, especially if you're going through something like that."
