Would you believe that "Friends" star David Schwimmer hasn't had a TV project since the hit sitcom ended 10 years ago? I mean, sure he's done guest spots on "30 Rock" and Lisa Kudrow's "Web Therapy," but a regular gig? Nope. So what could lure Schwimmer, who's been sticking to film as an actor and a director, back to TV now? Apparently the chance to play Kim Kardashian's dad. Schwimmer has signed on to play Robert Kardashian in "American Horror Story" and "Glee" guru Ryan Murphy's miniseries about the O.J. Simpson trial, "American Crime Story." Also signed for the 10-episode series? Sarah Paulson as prosecutor Marcia Clark and Cuba Gooding Jr. as Simpson himself. So welcome back, Dave? I guess?
