Penelope Cruz to Play Donatella Versace in 'American Crime Story' Season 3

The Spanish actress will play fashion designer Donatella Versace in American Crime Story's upcoming third season, FX announced Tuesday. In her US television debut, Cruz will star opposite previously casted stars Edgar Ramirez and Darren Criss as designer Gianni Versace and serial killer Andrew Cunana, respectively.

Penélope Cruz has been tapped to star as Donatella Versace, the sister of murdered fashion designer Gianni Versace, in Versace: American Crime Story, the third installment in the Emmy-winning anthology series from Ryan Murphy, Nina Jacobson and Brad Simpson. He was one of several victims of Cunanan, who went on a multi-state killing spree before taking his own life in 1997. But this news puts those rumors to rest.

The story is based on the book Vulgar Favors by Vanity Fair writer Maureen Orth. Her credits include her 2009 Academy Award-winning supporting role in Vicky Cristina Barcelona as well as Oscar-nominated performances in Nine and Volver. Over the years, he's been able to lure top tier thespian talent to his television shows-from Jessica Lange, Kathy Bates, and Angela Bassett in the American Horror Story franchises, to Julia Roberts in The Normal Heart, Susan Sarandon (with Lange) and Catherine-Zeta Jones in Feud, and just recently, the peerless Annette Bening for Katrina: American Crime Story.

This marks the U.S. television debut for Cruz.

Executive produced by FX mainstay Ryan Murphy, American Crime Story is following up its acclaimed debut season The People v. O. J. Simpson with a varied slew of true crime stories.

Tom Rob Smith will serve as writer for numerous Versace episodes, as well as executive producer alongside Murphy, Nina Jacobson, Brad Simpson, and Brad Falchuk. Murphy has also already confirmed the focus of the fourth installment: the Clinton-Lewinsky scandal.
