Edgar Ramirez to Star in ‘Versace: American Crime Story’

Ryan Murphy has found the two key stars for the third season of FX anthology American Crime Story.

Set to star in Versace: American Crime Story are Glee grad Darren Criss and The Bourne Ultimatum’s Edgar Ramirez, The Hollywood Reporter has learned.

Versace — which will come after the franchise’s second season, Katrina — will explore the July 1997 assassination of legendary designer Gianni Versace. His killer, Andrew Cunanan, committed suicide eight days later as Miami Dade police were on the verge of capturing the serial killer behind five slayings. The 10-episode third season will likely run in 2018, following quickly on Katrina’s heels.

Ramirez will play Versace; Criss is set as Cunanan. Production will begin in March and run concurrently with Katrina, which also recently began casting with Annette Bening set to star alongside returning players Courtney B. Vance, Sarah Paulson and Cuba Gooding Jr.
