Actress Sarah Paulson set out to play O.J. Simpson prosecutor Marcia Clark in a "truthful way" in the new FX series 'The People vs. O.J. Simpson.' "I read, watched, and listened to any and everything I could get my hands on," Paulson says. John Powers reviews Sonny Liew's new graphic novel 'The Art of Charlie Chan Hock Chye.'
