“American Crime Story” just cast “American Horror Story” actor Finn Wittrock as Jeff Trail in its “Versace” installment.

According to Entertainment Weekly, Wittrock will play the role of series killer Andrew Cunanan’s (Darren Criss) friend and first victim. The “Assassination of Gianni Versace” will officially premiere on FX in 2018 and will center on the July 1997 murder of the famed designer right in his home in Miami. The role of Versace will be played by Edgar Ramirez. The cast also includes Penelope Cruz as Versace’s sister, Donatella, Ricky Martin as Versace’s longtime partner, Antonio D’Amico.

Meanwhile, first photos of the cast members giving life to their respective characters have just been released exclusively by the publication. In the first photo, Ramirez’s Versace is wearing a blue and gold satin shirt paired with white pants. He is seated on the sofa with his left hand resting on his forehead.

As D’Amico, Martin is wearing only skimpy underwear, but most of his body is covered up by his black and white robe. Unlike Martin, Criss’ Cunanan is covered up in his picture. He is wearing a blue polo shirt and khaki pants.

In her second photo from the “Assassination of Gianni Versace” set, Cruz can be seen wearing a lavish pink gown while assuming the role of Donatella. Last month, Donatella’s first photo was released by the same publication. In the snap, the character is wearing the same pink gown. But this time around, she is seated in front of two muscular men whose faces are not visible in the snap.

Earlier this month, Deadline reported that “Versace” will air before “Katrina.” Originally, executive producer Ryan Murphy wanted the latter to be released first. However, due to scheduling conflicts, “Katrina” has been pushed back to early 2019.

While at the Television Critics Association winter press tour, FX president John Landgraf explained, “It’s just taken us time, frankly, to get material we’re happy with for ‘Katrina.’ When you’re shooting in New Orleans, you have to worry about hurricanes. You can only shoot there during certain times of the year.”
