Versace is the newest installment in Ryan Murphy’s anthology American Crime Story. The season will take a closer look at the murder of Gianni Versace. The season will feature a star-studded cast including Ricky Martin playing Gianni’s lover, Antonio D’Amico. D’Amico dated Gianni for 15 years until his murder in 1997.
Martin has acted in Broadway and some soap operas before playing D’Amico, but this will be his biggest role yet.
The role of Donatella was rumored to be played by Lady Gaga, but Murphy refused to be that typical and instead cast Penelope Cruz. Also, Gaga will be filming A Star Is Born and on tour, so she couldn’t step into the role of her close friend Donatella even if she wanted to.
The second season of the show about Hurricane Katrina has yet to air, but people seem to more excited about the show taking on the Versace story.
Both Season 2 and 3 of the show have yet to announce air dates.
