The new trailer for the upcoming season of Ryan Murphy’s true crime anthology, American Crime Story 2: The Assassination of Gianni Versace, is finally here. I have a feeling Donatella Versace‘s long skeletor finger has raked itself across Ryan’s face and warned him to “keep it classy, dahling”. I know she’s not supposed to be the star but Donatella is clearly the funnest character up in this bitch. And if you’re competing with Gina Gershon and Maya Rudolph in The Battle of The Network Donatellas, bleaching Penelope Cruz’s eyebrows, slapping a blond wig on her head and saying “presto chango!” does not a Donatella make. It makes a weird looking Penelope Cruz with a bizarro accent. She’s still basically Penelope Cruz but with itchy looking contacts and hasn’t she been through enough already?
Here’s the trailer.
So, Donatella is a bit tame. You’ve still got Ricky Martin in blood soaked lounge wear, a murderous Darren Criss in Speedos and John Woo’s trademark doves flying over an open casket so it’s definitely a season pass for me. And about that actor playing Gianni, can you believe he’s not the same guy playing him in Lifetime’s House of Versace? They look exactly the same! I swear I had to do an IMDB deep dive to figure out which one was the guy from Veronica Mars and which one was that other guy who’s been in stuff. In reality they look nothing alike but as Gianni’s Versace, they are practically twins!
