Watch Edgar Ramirez, Penelope Cruz and Ricky Martin in the New Trailer for FX’s “The Assassination Of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story”

11.15.2017 | By |

Three of the biggest Hispanic names in movies and music, Edgar Ramirez, Penelope Cruz and Ricky Martin, have come together in FX’s “The Assassination Of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story”. The new show airing January 17th, 2018 takes us through how Andrew Phillip Cunanan (Darren Criss), Gianni Versace’s killer, who also murdered at least five other people during a three-month period in 1997, met Versace, entered his world and ultimately killed him. Kudos to creator/producer Ryan Murphy for casting Hispanic talent at a time where Hispanic actors are severely underrepresented in television and film.
