We have been hungrily awaiting Ryan Murphy’s newest baby American Crime Story: The Assassination of Gianni Versace. The master has created so many hyper sensual shows that dive into very topical themes and have elevated the LGBTQ community. Coming later this year will be Murphy’s show Pose, about the 80s voguing culture in New York City.
What sets The Assassiation of Gianni Versace aside is the luxury that will be captured via fashion, color, and unique actors who will breathe life into this shocking story that was heard around the world.
Ricky Martin will star as Antonio D’Amico, Versace’s partner of over 15 years who found Versace when he was shot. Martin has been serving his sexy looks for the promos of the show, but nothing is a thirst trap more than his recent interview with Ellen Degeneres where he shared that he will be baring it all on screen for the first time as an actor.
Martin says that he will be showing his “tush for the first time on television.”
To which Ellen responds, “You sure do! More than that!”
“You guys have to see. It’s really good,” Responds Martin. Ummmm—way to promote the show! It’s working!
Martin also describes the importance of series because of the way it dissects LGBT rights in the 90s—some injustices that are still being dealt with today.
Watch the interview here where Martin discusses American Crime Story, his twins, the incredible work he has been doing for hurricane relief in Puerto Rico—and his boo-tay!
American Crime Story: The Assassination of Gianni Versace premieres January 17 on FX.
