You knew it was coming. As soon as you heard Ryan Murphy was going to make the murder of Gianni Versace for the third season of American Crime Story, you heard a tiny whisper coming from some indeterminate distance behind you and it said, “Lady Gaga will play Donatella Versace.” Well it appears now that the omniscient voice was correct. According to Us Weekly, one of those good old “sources” has exclusively confirmed that Gaga will indeed play the sister of Gianni Versace, the founder of the Versace fashion house who was shot and killed on the steps of his own home in July of 1997 by Andrew Cunanan. At the recent EW PopFest in Los Angeles, it was suggested to Murphy that Gaga would make a “perfect” Donatella, to which he replied with a cheeky, “Ya think?” And considering Gaga looks like she could be Donatella’s daughter, the showrunner really had no choice.
