The Assassination of Gianni Versace cast: Who stars in American Crime Story season 2? | TV & Radio | Showbiz & TV

American Crime Story season two will be broadcast on BBC Two this evening (Wednesday, February 28) at 9pm.

The drama from US network FX consists of nine episodes and has already started airing in America with fans gripped by the true crime series.

Just like season one of the anthology series – The People v. O. J. Simpson – the second outing also features a large cast.

The Assassination of Gianni Versace features a group of main characters with lots of recurring cast members.


Who is in the cast of The Assassination of Gianni Versace?

Gianni Versace – Édgar Ramírez

Playing the title character of Gianni Versace is Hollywood actor Édgar Ramírez, who completely transforms himself for the role of the iconic fashion designer.

Ramírez’s other roles include playing terrorist Carlos the Jackal in the biopic series Carlos, a CIA operative in Zero Dark Thirty, and an assassin in The Bourne Ultimatum.

Andrew Cunanan – Darren Criss

Glee and American Horror Story actor Darren Criss takes on the part of serial Andrew Cunanan.

The singer-songwriter, who has had critical acclaim both on stage and screen, is possibly taking on his darkest role yet as the loner and compulsive liar Cunanan.


Antonio D’Amico – Ricky Martin

Singer Ricky Martin portrays the part of Gianni’s lover of 15 years: Antonio D’Amico.

In the aftermath of the murder, Antonio appears to struggle with prejudice from the police as well as his frosty relationship with his lover’s family.

Donatella Versace – Penélope Cruz

Oscar winner Penélope Cruz plays the role of the formidable Donatella Versace, sister to the murdered Gianni.

Cruz gives a strong turn as the fashion magnate, forced to take over her family business in the wake of her brother’s death.


Jeff Trail – Finn Wittrock

The Big Short, La La Land and Unbroken actor Finn Wittrock appears in the show as Cunanan’s first victim and friend Jeff Trail.

The US actor is no stranger to working with Ryan Murphy – who created both American Crime Story and American Horror Story – having appeared in Freak Show, Cult and Roanoke.

David Madson – Cody Fern

The Australian actor is something of a newcomer as he takes on the part of Cunanan’s friend and alleged lover David Madson.

Fern was previously a stage actor, receiving critical acclaim in Romeo & Juliet and War Horse at the National Theatre in London.

He’s set to appearing in the sixth and final season of Netflix show House of Cards.

Lee Miglin – Mike Farrell

Veteran American actor Mike Farrell plays third victim Lee Miglin, a real estate tycoon from Chicago who is brutally killed by Cunanan.

Audiences will be familiar with Farrell from his role as Captain B.J. Hunnicutt in M*A*S*H.

Other cast members include Orange Is The New Black’s Dascha Polanco as Det. Lori Wieder, Will Chase as Det. Paul Scrimshaw and Judith Light as Marilyn Miglin.

The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story will air on BBC Two tonight at 9pm.
