Television Critics Association (TCA 2017).   American Crime Story:  Versace (August 9, 2017)



I didn't have a chance to post these pics earlier, so thought I would post them now.


Sometimes it looks like Darren was in character (of Andrew Cunanan)--he looks a bit intense.   (If someone looked at me in this way, I would blurt out, "I'm sorry!  I won't do it again!":amused )

Darren has such an expressive face (I think it has to do with his large anime-like eyes and his dramatic eyebrows).  In the first pic, he looks a bit scary and intense, and even more so in the pic that is 3rd from the top.  In the last pic, he looks sad.

I was expecting something to happen, most likely gunshots, but still, the sudden sharp sounds of the gunshots, and the image of all the startled doves did cause me to jump.

nowthisnews: The first teaser trailer for the second season of ‘American Crime Story’ is finally here

Harpers Bazaar wrote:
The First Trailer For The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story Is Here

The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story doesn’t premiere until 2018, but the previews are already starting to roll in. FX just shared the first teaser trailer of AHS’s second season, and though it’s short, it’s nonetheless chilling.

The 20-second clip features the late fashion designer’s iconic Miami home. The camera pans out in silence, but then two gunshots break the quiet, sending a flock of doves flying from behind the mansion’s gates.

Following 2016’s acclaimed The People v. O.J. Simpson, American Crime Story returns for a second season focusing on Gianni Versace’s murder by Andrew Cunanan in 1997. The series boasts a star-studded cast with Edgar Ramirez as the eponymous designer, Darren Criss as his killer, Ricky Martin as his partner Antonio D'Amico and Penelope Cruz as his sister Donatella Versace.

A  few more pics taken by paparazzi while on the Versace set.  Those clothes look so big on him.  With her character being in her bathrobe and slippers, I'm wondering if the clothes that Cunanan is wearing were loaned to Cunanan and then he left.   He looks sad.

It's really interesting to hear Darren talk about working on Versace.  I'm so happy for him.  It's heartwarming to hear how much it means to him to be working on this Ryan Murphy project.


"This is why people are obsessed with Ryan Murphy."

"It's pretty extraordinary to see him" [to see Ryan in action on Versace].

[About Ryan Murphy's talent]:

"Oh shit, . . . you are really  good at this." 

"Working with Ryan and see him do his thing and me getting to kind of get in the ring with him is really, really, really a treat."

"It is the most exhilarating job I've ever had.  I've been waiting for this moment my whole life .  I'm so excited to go to work every day.  I'm just feel so overwhelmed with gratitude to be a part of such a prestigious project.  It's crazy."

I forgot to add this earlier interview with Broadway.com in the Versace thread.

Editor-in-Chief Paul Wontorek sits down with GLEE star and Broadway favorite Darren Criss (HOW TO SUCCEED IN BUSINESS WITHOUT REALLY TRYING, HEDWIG AND THE ANGRY INCH) to chat about the upcoming Elsie Fest. In its third year, Criss’ ELSIE FEST is a concert celebrating musicals, featuring stars and songs from Broadway and beyond. Criss also discusses his involvement in the upcoming new installment of Ryan Murphy’s FX series AMERICAN CRIME STORY: THE ASSASSINATION OF GIANNI VERSACE, in which he plays serial killer Andrew Cunanan.

It's interesting to hear Darren talk about Versace and his communications with Ryan Murphy about being cast in it.  Love hearing Darren talking about how this is such a big break for him and that he is so very excited/exhilarated about this project.  He said it seems that he waited his whole life for an opportunity like this--and it is so overwhelmingly important to him.  I like how he talks about the major milestones of his career:  StarKid was a launching pad.  Glee was a catapult.  And Versace is his big break.   :cry   He talked about how he and Ryan discussed it very early on, then some time passed, Darren had sold his pilot script for "Royalties,' and was working on another "thing" when he read an announcement about Versace American Crime Story.  So he contacted Ryan and they talked it out, and then that other "thing"/project then was put on the backburner, so that Darren could focus on working on Versace.   ( I still think that this other "thing"/project is "Royalties," especially since in this interview, he actually mentioned about the very same time he was so happy about selling the pilot script for "Royalties" was when he found out that Ryan was about to work on Versace.   But we shall see. . . :happy face )   Darren also stressed that the real life story surrounding Versace is very tragic.  And he gives more clarification about why he posted that instagram (haha!  Paul:  "So what's going on . . . you didn't have enough followers?").   I always appreciate how supportive Paul Wontorek is of Darren.  It's so nice to hear Paul being so enthusiastic about both Elsie Fest and Darren being cast in Versace

The audio (see above) is based on an interview that Darren did with Paul Wontorek of Broadway.com on August 4, 2017 (starting Point 16:38).  However, the audio seems longer, and the video seems edited so that it is shorter.  Warning:  If you are at work, etc., this video does contain that Instagram that Darren posted (about being sunburned etc), along with a paparazzi photo of Darren while filming Versace wearing a speedo.

The suggestion at first is a body bag, but it proves to be a suit bag (because Versace= fashion).   The background noise:  It sounds like police calling in the crime scene?  So simple, yet so well done.

Ricky Martin wrote:It’s a really cool series, beautifully written. A bit dramatic but it’s an honor for me to be working with incredible actors and actresses like Penelope Cruz, Edgar Ramirez, Darren Criss, people that I love, that I respect and it was an amazing experience. I can’t wait for you to check it out. It’s very dramatic but very uplifting at the same time. And we’re going to touch on some subjects that are very important. When I work on these scenes I just think about the world healing - that’s how powerful this series is going to be.

I appreciate Ricky's words about Puerto Rico.  I'm thankful about Ricky's fundraising for the people of Puerto Rico.

Ryan Murphy wrote:
I feel like what my job is to do is to say ‘I see something’ and then to explain what I see. And most of the time that’s a young person, that I see something in that I’m excited by, and I’ve had it over and over and over again. It’s never a ‘no’. It’s a conversation of me having to do my job and explain to the people who are putting up the money what I see. I mean I had it with - so many times - I mean I had it with Sarah Paulson for Marcia Clark. I just, the second I read it I was like I want Sarah to do that and I won’t do it without her. And it was a conversation and everybody listened to me and said ‘okay’. I had it with Lea Michele on Glee…I had it with Matt Bomer on the Normal Heart. I had it recently with Darren Criss on the Assassination of Gianni Versace. Just people that I’ve worked with or young people that I, umm, love - I had it this year with Evan Peters, I had it this year on American Horror Story - where I just see something in them and I say to them 'I just really wanna challenge you. Are you up for it?’ And every artist says 'I am’ and I say 'okay, let’s go.’ And that to me is the best part of my life and my job. It’s the thing I love the most.

Another quote of  (from the longer YouTube video)at Point 31:00:
Ryan Murphy wrote:I feel . . . a responsibility to say, like who's the next young voice, who's the next person who is different than the mainstream.  So I try to bring those people up.  And I try to work with them on those shows and train them, and talk to them . . .



Note:  He also has some very sweet things to say about how Norman Lear influenced Ryan's career.  It truly was touching to see how touched Norman was to hear Ryan talk about him.  :cry  I also find it touching to hear Ryan talk about how Norman told Ryan early on Ryan's career, that he [Ryan] should keep being unusual and different, that is how you change the world.  (Norman told Ryan "You are  kinda weird and that's great.")   This really fits in with Glee, and how it changed how many people view folks in the LGBTQ community.   Glee represented other under-represented communities such as those with disabilities.  At Point 1:00:20, Ryan talked about how at one of the Glee concerts, he met some kids with physical disabilities in wheelchairs who traveled a distance, despite several obstacles, because the character Artie represented their community.  He talked about how characters can change people's lives, that TV can show people that they matter.  And it definitely fits in with Ryan's new show, Pose, and how people will get to feel that they are getting to know, and I'm sure care about, characters in the transgender community.  I like what Ryan said about showing diversity in TV shows.

From Darren Criss Army:

GMANetwork wrote:
Hollywood Insider TV's game-changers help celebrate #Globes75

The panelists talked about what television shows they personally enjoy watching. Kelley revealed he’s a big fan of Murphy’s “Feud” while Murphy announced he loves watching Kelley’s “Big Little Lies”, as well as “The Real Housewives.”

Murphy, the 52-year-old writer-director-producer of “Glee,” “American Horror Story” and “American Crime Story,” got reunited with his “Glee” cast that evening what with the presence of Darren Criss, Lea Michele and Matthew Morrison in the audience. Murphy spoke to the audience about his experience with change in the industry. “I never changed. What changed in my life were the executives. When I started, it was tough for me. At work, they would tell me ‘you’re too gay, your writing is too gay, your characters are too gay.’ It was painful for me. By the time I did ‘Glee’ I was still in fight mode but the executives wanted more gay, more of the gay character. I felt very liberated. That has been a great change in my life.”




Criss, who is portraying Andrew Cunanan in Murphy’s “The Assassination of Gianni Versace,” told us that they are not done filming yet and that they filmed a scene pretending to be Baliuag, Bulacan outside Los Angeles. “My mother even dropped by and checked it out,” he revealed.
