One of the most highly-anticipated series in 2018 is The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story, or as it's become known on social media: #acsversace. After the incredible success of the first ACS season, which revolved around the infamous O.J. Simpson murder case, Ryan Murphy is back at it again with another high-profile murder story that captivated the world back in the late 90's.
This time around, it revolves around the murder of fashion designer Gianni Versace by serial killer Andrew Cunanan. The series is based off of Maureen Orth's book Vulgar Favors: Andrew Cunanan, Gianni Versace, and the Largest Failed Manhunt in U. S. History. The show's first episode premieres this Wednesday night.
There's a bevy of reasons to tune in, in particular the man candy that will be appearing throughout the run of the series. That being said, here are five reasons, or five guys, that will captivate you mentally and otherwise once the show begins.
Ricky Martin. Ricky, whose primarily known for his singing chops over the past twenty years, will get to switch gears into the acting world by playing fellow fashion designer Antonio D'Amico. Plus he promises there will be some sort of nudity from him, so we have that to look forward to as well.
Darren Criss: Darren will be making the leap from the musical comedy world that we have grown to love him on in Glee to playing serial killer Andrew Cunanan in ACS: Versace.
Edgar Ramirez: Could he be any hunkier? The Golden Globe & Emmy nominated actor takes leading role in ACS: Versace as Gianni Versace himself, and so far has been getting a ton of praise from critics alike. Could this score him his first ever Emmy & Golden Globe for his portrayal of a fashion icon?
Max Greenfield: The New Girl alum (who also made a guest spot on Will & Grace this season) will also be in the upcoming series playing a character named Ronnie. Let's for the moment, however, take a look at this photo of him and Darren. Yum.
Finn Wittrock: The American Horror Story alum will be playing one of Cunanan's alleged victims Jeff Trail in ACS: Versace. Also… woof.
