Last year, FX had a hit on their hands with “The People vs. OJ Simpson,” the first season of their “American Crime Story” series. For their second season, they’ve followed it up with something just as juicy: the murder of fashion icon Gianni Versace. “The Assassination of Gianni Versace” features Venezuelan actor Edgar Ramirez as Gianni Versace and pop star Ricky Martin as Antonio D’Amico, the partner of the slain designer who famously found Gianni on the steps of his Miami mansion. Spanish actress Penelope de la Cruz plays legendary designer Donatella Versace. Yep, Italians are being played by Latino and Spanish actors, which is kind of confusing. I know they’re all going to bring it, so I’m okay with it. Plus, how many times has it been the other way around? *cough* Scarface *cough*

I may never sleep again, but I’m a true crime junkie, so bring it on!
