Ricky Martin Is Heading To FX’s ‘Versace: American Crime Story’

Production begins later this month.

If you don’t think you’ll have the chance to see Ricky Martin’s just-unveiled Las Vegas residency, then you can check him out on FX.

On Friday (April 7), it was announced that Ryan Murphy has tapped the Latin heartthrob for an upcoming acting gig opposite Édgar Rarmirez, Penélope Cruz and Darren Criss in "Versace: American Crime Story."

As per Deadline, Murphy's 10-episode series will examine "the shocking July 1997 assassination of Gianni Versace (Ramirez) on the steps of his Miami Beach mansion by sociopath and serial killer Andrew Cunanan (Criss)." It’s worth noting that the actual story arc will be based on the book, Vulgar Favors: Andrew Cunanan, Gianni Versace, and the Largest Failed Manhunt in U.S. History by Maureen Ort. This marks the third installment of the limited FX series.

Murphy and Martin are no strangers to one another. Back in 2012, Sin City's newest entertainer was cast in an episode of "Glee," where he played night-school Spanish teacher Señor David Martinez. Production on "Versace: American Crime Story" is expected to begin later this month in Los Angeles and Miami.

Oh, and if you need a reminder of Ricky's acting (or dancing) skills, here's a clip of that episode of "Glee" that we mentioned earlier.
