Penelope Cruz Cast As Donatella Versace In 'American Crime Story'
Last year, the American Crime Story dudes announced the subject of their third series: Gianni Versace's assassination. Shortly after, news came that Lady Gaga had landed the role of Donatella — an excellent casting decision that we were very much looking forward to seeing with our eyes. Alas, this turned out to be lies.
Today we get the sting taken out a little bit, with the announcement that super human babe Penelope Cruz will play Donatella. And TBF this isn't a let down at all. The girl can really get down with some drama, as we've seen in Pedro Almodóvar's films, and her transformation for the role is really going to be something special.
It's Penelope's first solid, ongoing role in a TV series. She'll join a cast including Edgar Ramirez and Darren Criss to tell the story of Gianni's murder by Andrew Cunanan. We're so ready.
