Darren Criss Cast as Andrew Cunanan in FX's Versace: American Crime Story
Darren Criss is fast becoming TV’s go-to villain.
The Glee alum — who was recently cast as the Big Bad Music Meister in The CW’s two-part Supergirl/The Flash musical event — has signed on to star in FX’s forthcoming Versace-themed edition of American Crime Story as serial killer Andrew Cunnan.
[. . . ]
As previously reported, the 10-episode third season of Ryan Murphy’s Emmy-winning anthology will center on the July 1997 assassination of the legendary designer on the steps of his Miami Beach mansion by Cunanan. One week later, Cunanan would take his own life. The season will be based on the book Vulgar Favors by Vanity Fair writer Maureen Orth.
[. . . ]
Production on Versace: American Crime Story begins next month and will likely be completed ahead of the franchise’s Katrina-themed second season. The Katrina edition, however, will still air before the Versace installment (although both will likely be held until 2018).
Aw, Darren's friend, Caitlin Brody (Senior Editor, TV @ EW) sending a proud message to Darren:
cbroday To quote the great Aubrey Graham, “I’m so, I’m so, I’m so, I’m so, I’m so proud of you.” Congrats @darrencriss on starring in American Crime Story Versace! You’re my hero.
This is fantastic news!! So proud of Darren! So grateful to Ryan Murphy!!
Lin, Lilikoiluv, dusty, DaisiesAndLilies--where are you guys? Jeremy, now is the time to use the dancing banana smiley! I'll wait for you to do the honors!

Darren Criss, Edgar Ramirez to Star in "Versace: American Crime Story'
Ryan Murphy has found the two key stars for the third season of FX anthology American Crime Story.
Set to star in Versace: American Crime Story are Glee grad Darren Criss and The Bourne Ultimatum's Edgar Ramirez, The Hollywood Reporter has learned.
Versace — which will come after the franchise's second season, Katrina — will explore the July 1997 assassination of legendary designer Gianni Versace. His killer, Andrew Cunanan, committed suicide eight days later as Miami Dade police were on the verge of capturing the serial killer behind five slayings. The 10-episode third season will likely run in 2018, following quickly on Katrina's heels.
Versace, from Fox 21 and FX Productions, will be based on the book Vulgar Favors by Vanity Fair writer Maureen Orth, with Tom Rob Smith (London Spy) set to write the first two and multiple subsequent episodes.
Ramirez will play Versace; Criss is set as Cunanan. Production will begin in March and run concurrently with Katrina, which also recently began casting with Annette Bening set to star alongside returning players Courtney B. Vance, Sarah Paulson and Cuba Gooding Jr.
The casting brings Criss back into the Murphy fold following a brief gig on American Horror Story and his breakout role as Blaine on Fox's megahit Glee. Most recently, he has a role in The CW's Supergirl/Flash musical crossover. Versace marks Criss' first series regular TV gig following Glee. He also was poised to star in a workplace comedy that was in development at Fox. Repped by CAA, Hyphenate Creative Management and Hansen Jacobson, he most recently starred in Hedwig and the Angry Inch on Broadway and is reprising the role in the show's Los Angeles production.
There is mention in the THR article about Royalties, but it's unclear if there is any new info about the project. THR article also is a bit off in that Darren already has reprised the role of Hedwig, not "is reprising" the role, in the Los Angeles production.
