Even though you are not going to be seeing “Versace: American Crime Story” on the air until 2018, executive producer Ryan Murphy and FX are already getting some of the cast together for what could be an impact installment.
Specifically, Murphy is bringing back someone in Darren Criss who he is certainly familiar with working with already. Sources confirm that the former “Glee” star, who has also appeared on “American Horror Story,” is going to star as Andrew Cunanan, the serial killer responsible for the murder of famed designer Gianni Versace.
This is easily one of the meatiest roles that we’ve seen for Criss over the course of his career, and he’s going to have some great company on the show as well as Edgar Ramirez is set to play Gianni on the show. There is no word as of yet on who is playing Donatella Versace, but the one thing that we do know is that this person is not going to be Lady Gaga. That is a rumor that has already been denied, but we understand somewhat where it came from given the singer’s physical similarity to the designer and her affinity for all things fashion.
