Penelope Cruz Completely Embodies Donatella Versace in New Crime Story Teaser

Penelope Cruz looked fantastically regal in a pink satin gown when the first preview of her portrayal of Donatella Versace in American Crime Story: The Assassination of Gianni Versace was released in May.

But now, we finally get to see her in action.

In the first teaser for Ryan Murphy’s upcoming FX anthology, Cruz masterfully takes on the role of the celebrated designer and sister of the late Gianni Versace. Dressed in all black, she moves in the same sensual manner that Donatella does as she kisses the footsteps of Casa Casuarina, the Miami mansion where Gianni was infamously shot in 1997.

The video may not be more than 30 seconds long, but watching her take on the role has got us super excited for the 2018 premiere. Murphy previously opened up about shooting scenes for the show at the iconic home.

When the Mayor of Television talks, the industry listens.

John Landgraf, CEO of FX Networks, spoke at a Television Critics Association conference a few years back and told the audience what he would do if he were “mayor” of the industry. Landgraf noted that he wasn’t the mayor, but according to Wikipedia and TV critic Alan Sepinwall, “it stuck, in the same way that his use of the phrase ‘Peak TV’ came to be the easiest way to refer to the glut of content in this era.”

Perhaps it stuck because under Landgraf, FX has contributed many successful and acclaimed shows to that glut, including American Horror Story, Atlanta, You’re the Worst, Better Things, Fargo and American Crime Story: The People v. O.J. Simpson.

But as I did my first play at Stanford University, I got a mentor — Prof. Harry J. Elam Jr. And he said, “Listen, I know that you’re not going to major in this, but just keep doing plays. The (drama) department could really benefit from your presence.” And the more plays that I did, the more interested I became, and what I thought was a hobby became a passion. Became a career. I changed my major from economics to drama.
