Ricky Martin Signs On For Third Season Of American Crime Story

Latin pop singer and actor Ricky Martin joins the cast of American Crime Story: Versace as the fashion icon’s partner Antonio D’Amico.

At the age of twelve, Martin joined the all-boy music group Menudo and rose to stardom alongside his band mates in the 1980’s. After five years, he departed from the group and went on to release his own solo albums. Additionally, Martin leveraged his music career into numerous appearances on television, including roles in Glee, American Dad, and the Latin American dub of Minions.

Detailing the series of events that led to the shocking murder of Gianni Versace, the third season of the FX anthology crime series will see Martin portray his lover alongside Edgar Ramirez as Versace and Darren Criss as his murderer Andrew Cunanan.

Comingsoon.net, the source of this story, adds the following about Martin’s career:

A dedicated global advocate for tolerance, Ricky Martin’s charitable work is spearheaded through the programs of the Ricky Martin Foundation – which advocates for the wellbeing of children around the globe in critical areas such as social justice, education and health.

Currently Martin can be seen in Las Vegas at his residency in the Park Theater at Monte Carlo Resort and Casino. Ricky Martin’s “ALL IN,” runs through September 2017.

Production of Versace: American Crime Story is scheduled to begin later this month to air in 2018.

About the author

Reggie Peralta

An aspiring writer, longtime film junkie, and former UCLARadio.com disc jockey (where I graduated with a BA in Political Science), I've made the jump from penning book reviews and current events editorials for HonorSociety.org to writing movie and TV news and reviews.

When I'm not working towards my certificate in Radio and Television/Video Production at Fullerton College, I enjoy reading (horror, science fiction, and historical/political nonfiction are particular favorites), participating in my school's TV and theatre clubs, attending movie screenings, plays, concerts, and other events, and trying to come up with pithy things to say on social media. Believe it or not, there are occasions where I find time to write for my own leisure.
