Ricky Martin has joined the cast of FX’s “Versace: American Crime Story.” Martin will play Antonio D’Amico, the partner of fashion designer Gianni Versace.
“Versace” is the planned third installment of executive producer Ryan Murphy’s “American Crime Story.” The series is executive produced by Murphy, Nina Jacobson, and Brad Simpson, and is produced by Fox 21 Television Studios and FX Productions.
Set to begin production later this month and premiere in 2018, “Versace” tells the story of the fashion designer’s murder. Martin joins a cast that includes Édgar Rarmirez as Versace, Penélope Cruz as his sister Donatella and Darren Criss as serial killer Andrew Cunanan. The miniseries follows last year’s “The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story” and the upcoming “Katrina: American Crime Story,” which will be set against the backdrop of Hurricane Katrina in New Orleans.
