Penelope Cruz Impresses As Donatella In Full Trailer For ‘The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story’

When Ryan Murphy first announced Penelope Cruz would be playing Donatella Versace during the second season of American Crime Story, I wasn’t completely sold. IMHO, I didn’t think she looked or sounded like the Italian designer. I wasn’t alone in thinking this.

When the first promo pics were released, I changed my tune a little. Thought Cruz resembled her a bit. Now that the full trailer has arrived and we finally get to hear Penelope, I’m a doing a complete 180 on my original stance. She only has a few moments in the clip, but the Spanish actress does an excellent job mimicking Donatella’s voice. Guess Murphy knew what he was doing all along 🙂

During the season finale of American Horror Story, FX debuted the first full trailer for The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story. As expected, and hoped, it looks like it’s going to be another excellent season of the true-crime anthology. Everyone appears to bring their A-game, especially Darren Criss. I actually felt like I was watching Andrew Cunanan. “You’re not better than me. We’re the same. The only difference is you got lucky,” Darren says in the voiceover in the trailer.

American Crime Story: The Assassination of Gianni Versace arrives on FX January 17. Ricky Martin as Antonio D’Amico, Edgar Ramirez as Gianni Versace, Max Greenfield and Annaleigh Ashford also star. Check out the exciting trailer below.
