One of the more highly anticipated television upcoming events is The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story.
Among the cast members is a man better known for his singing: Ricky Martin.
The Grammy winner plays Gianni Versace’s longtime partner Antonio D’Amico in the third installment of the FX anthology series.
Entertainment Weekly has just released several cast photos including one of Martin standing poolside wearing a speedo.

Famed clothing designer Versace (portrayed by Edgar Ramirez) was one of the victims of serial killer Andrew Cunanan who is played by Glee alum Darren Criss.
Versace was assassinated on the front steps of his mansion in Miami Beach in 1997 by Cunanan.
The designer was Cunanan’s fifth and final victim in a nationwide killing spree. Cunanan killed himself eight days after Versace’s murder as police closed in on him.
While known primarily as a singer, Martin has occasionally taken on acting roles.
He was once a regular on the ABC soap General Hospital and more recently starred on Broadway in Evita.
Martin recently began a residency at the Park Theatre in Las Vegas.
The first season of American Crime Story was about the OJ Simpson murder trial and the upcoming second season which will be about aftermath of Hurricane Katrina.
