Tonight, FX kicks off the second installment of its award-winning American Crime Story series, American Crime Story: The Assassination of Gianni Versace. This time, the limited series is based on Maureen Orthâ€™s book â€œVulgar Favorsâ€ and follows the events of the brutal 1997 murder of international fashion icon Gianni Versace (Edgar Ramirez, Bright, Carlos) in front of his Miami Beach mansion, at the hands of deranged psychopath Andrew Cunanan (Darren Criss, Glee). The series takes a look at the manhunt for Cunanan â€“ which actually started long before he claimed his fifth victim â€“ and the cultural biases that allowed his killing spree to go on for so long. The series also stars PenÃ©lope Cruz as Gianniâ€™s sister Donatella and Ricky Martin as Gianniâ€™s longtime boyfriend Antonio Dâ€™Amico, as well Judith Light (Transparent), Mike Farrell (M*A*S*H), Dascha Polanco, Max Greenfield (New Girl), Finn Wittrock (American Horror Story: Freak Show), Cody Fern, and Jon Jon Briones.
While I was extremely familiar with the details of the O.J. Simpson case portrayed in the showâ€™s first season, I donâ€™t really know anything about the Versace murder, so I look forward to some unexpected twists and turns this season. Tonightâ€™s premiere is really well done, opening with operatic-like recreation of the murder before jumping back to 1990, where we see Cunanan first meet Gianni, followed by the first glimpse into investigation of the murder. I expect that over the course of the season, we will learn more about what led Cunanan to go on his killing spree, while also seeing how he was ultimately apprehended. I was extremely impressed by Darren Crissâ€™s portrayal of this psychopath. Cunanan is a poor con-man who is constantly making up stories about himself, his family, and his wealth. While he comes off as a pompous ass at times, he somehow still manages to win people over and weasels his way into exclusive invite-only situations. There is one moment in tonightâ€™s premiere where I was really blown away by Darren Crissâ€™s performance â€“ he manages to convey Cunananâ€™s complete lack of emotion, empathy, and any guilt for what he has done, with one simple gesture. I am really looking forward to seeing more of Crissâ€™s performance, learning more about Cunananâ€™s motives, and seeing how the manhunt plays out.
On tonightâ€™s premiere, â€œThe Man Who Would Be Vogue,â€ the eyes of the world turn to Miami Beach, Fla., following the murder of fashion designer Gianni Versace.
Follow the investigation into Versaceâ€™s murder starting tonight on FX at 10/9c.
