Disgraced American football legend and retired actor O.J. Simpson is reportedly planning to become a televangelist after his release from a five year prison term some time this Christmas, according to Fox News on Thursday.
The troubled star's manager Norman Pardo told The Enquirer that Simpson found God in prison and has been ministering to inmates for a while now. He reportedly even converted his white supremacist cellmate to Christianity.
"O.J. is very religious now, and he's been counseling other inmates with Bible studies for months," Pardo explained in the report. "When I talk to him on the phone, all he wants to discuss is religion. He's obsessed!"
Since December 2008, Simpson, 66, has been incarcerated at the Lovelock Correctional Center in Nevada after he was convicted of armed robbery and kidnapping charges.
A source added that Simpson has been inspired by TV Evangelist Frederick Price.
The former actor and football star is currently in prison, serving a 33-year sentence for criminal conspiracy and kidnapping among other things.
To kick-start O.J.’s new life, a company called Saylors Brothers Entertainment is working with him and Pardo to produce a documentary about Simpson based on taped interviews.
Kenny Saylors, director of the documentary, told The ENQUIRER: “O.J. has rediscovered his faith and we’re interested in working with him. We’ve come to the conclusion that prison has actually set him free.”
