Penelope Cruz will be playing Donatella Versace in TV Series “American Crime Story”



Although many thought that the perfect choice to play Donatella Versace would be non other than Lady Gaga, it seems like the creator of the TV show “American Crime Story” thought differently.

Penelope Cruz has been chosen to play the Italian designer. The third series of the TV show is set to focus on the 1997 murder of Versace’s brother, Gianni Versace, and has already signed up Edgar Ramirez to play the late designer, as well as Darren Criss, who will play his murderer, Andrew Cunanan.

According to Vogue, the news that Cruz will be playing Donatella, not only adds serious star power to the plot line but also marks Penelope’s first regular TV role.

    Gianni Versace is “Versace”…..Donatella collected creative director of the house after he died. So when you say “Versace’s brother” it’s an insult, Gianni is Versace!
    Also, oscar winning Penelope coming to the small screen! That’s good. Can’t wait, to be honest.

    Its better to have penelope play that part instead of Gaga since Penelope already as a funky accent, which will be pretty similar to what she presently sounds like…plus, she is an actress with a Brown undertone.. Lady gaga is pale, not an actress and facial features not pliable to look like Donatella.

    Good luck Penelope, please make it Worth our time….as I really enjoyed watching the OJ Simpson season…I will live to see the Versace Crime story.
