Supergirl Superman Cast

TVLine Items: AHS Vet to Crime Story, Lion King Spinoff Adds Scar and More

Ryan Murphy has tapped another member of his acting troupe for the next season of American Crime Story.

Frequent American Horror Story cast member Finn Wittrock will co-star in the Assassination of Gianni Versace installment as serial killer Andrew Cunanan’s friend (and first victim) Jeff Trail, reports.

Versace — slated to premiere in early 2018 — centers on the July 1997 murder of iconic fashion designer Gianni Versace (The Bourne Ultimatum‘s Édgar Ramirez) on the steps of his Miami Beach mansion by Cunanan (Glee‘s Darren Criss). The cast also includes Penélope Cruz (as Versace’s sister Donatella) and Ricky Martin (as Versace’s longtime partner Antonio D’Amico).
