Penelope Cruz as Donatella Versace in FX’s The Assassination Of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story:
“I will not allow that man, that nobody, to kill my brother twice!”
For Ryan Murphy’s American Crime Story’s second season, the openly gay producer / director / writer looks back at the 1997 murder of Italian fashion designer Gianni Versace, played by handsome, hunky Edgar Ramirez. Ricky Martin also stars as Versace’s partner, Antonio D’Amico.
Versace was murdered outside his home in Miami by thrill killer Andrew Cunanan, played by Glee’s Darren Criss. Cunanan murdered four people before he got to Versace and then committed suicide eight days after killing Versace.
The new trailer depicts Versace’s opulent and glamorous lifestyle, contrasted against Cunanan’s movements before he meets Versace.
Criss, as Cunanan narrates:
“This world has wasted me, and yet this world also made you, Mr. Versace, into a star. You’re not better than me. We’re the same. The only difference is that you got lucky.”
The Assassination Of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story premieres on FX on January 17th. Watch:
