The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story — Grade It!

The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story — Grade It!
Whether Darren Criss was shooting people in the face, puking in public bathrooms or casually rubbing his crotch while standing over a sleeping couple, he sure made Wednesday’s season premiere of American Crime Story feel like the darkest episode of Glee yet.

Darren Criss and Edgar Ramírez on Becoming Andrew Cunanan and Gianni Versace for American Crime Story

Darren Criss and Edgar Ramírez on Becoming Andrew Cunanan and Gianni Versace for American Crime Story
The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story is retelling one of the most infamous murder sprees and subsequent manhunts in Us history, but at the heart of it is a story about two men: fashion mogul Gianni Versace and his killer Andrew Cunanan. To tell those stories, Ryan Murphy cast Edgar Ramírez and Darren Criss. For Criss, the project has been in the works for a long time. He said he first heard about it from Murphy when Murphy was working on the Scream Queens pilot more than three years ago. Since then, he had a chance to brush up on the case—and brush up he did. Criss is shedding the squeaky-clean TV image developed by playing Blaine on Glee and truly gets lost in the role—in the best way...

'Assassination of Gianni Versace': Sex, Lies, Fashion and Homophobia
The summer of 1997: Fashion designer Gianni Versace wakes up in his Miami Beach mansion, wearing pajama bottoms decorated with his own logo. He slips into a hot-pink robe, then steps out onto the balcony to admire the morning sun over the ocean waves. He strolls through his gilded palace, greeting the servants who are already standing at attention in their places. Versace plucks a glass of orange juice from a silver tray as he lounges to have breakfast – alone – by his pool. Meanwhile, a psychopathic serial killer sits on the beach,

Starstruck Darren Criss Performed a Ricky Martin Song for Ricky Martin While Shooting Versace
Darren Criss didn’t get to spend too much onscreen time with his American Crime Story costars — but they more than made up for it when the cameras weren’t rolling.

During an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live! on Wednesday, Criss opened up about shooting the upcoming FX series, The Assassination of Gianni Versace, which chronicles the 1997 murder of the Italian designer outside his Miami Beach home at the hands of Andrew Cunanan, played by Criss.

“He was a spree killer, a very troubled young man who does not follow the typical prerequisites of a killer,” said Criss, 30, of Cunanan.

Netflix Officially Announces Bright Sequel with a Video Showing Orcs Auditioning For It

It was leaked back when the film was in development, and now it's official, Bright is getting a sequel. Because Netflix rarely does any announcement in a normal way, the streaming service made the announcement via fake Orc auditions for the film, which are actually pretty funny.

Will Smith and Joel Edgerton are expected to reprise their roles in the sequel. The film got a ton of viewers when it was released. The streaming service recently said that it was viewed by 11 million people over three days. Netflix also said that it was the highest viewed original film ever on the service in its first week of release and one of the biggest originals it has ever launched. 

Bright was met with mixed reviews. Some people loved it, while others didn't, but there's obviously an audience for it that will watch a sequel.
