The People v. O.J. Simpson has consumed the attention of viewers on Tuesday nights. Even those in the music world.

The Weeknd has been intently tuning in to the FX series, and on Thursday commended the perfect actor choices in particular.

“The casting in ‘People v. O.J.’ is spot on. Congrats to the homie John Travolta,” he tweeted.

Travolta plays one of the lawyers on Simpson’s defense team, Robert Shapiro. As for the other shoutout, that’s due to Kenneth Choi for playing Ito. (It’s worth mentioning, too, that Sarah Paulson applied the perfume Marcia Clark owned in the ’90s to help get into character of the prosecutor.)

The People v. O.J. Simpson airs Tuesdays at 10 p.m. ET on FX.
