Ricky Martin and Édgar Ramírez have undergone transformations for their new Versace: An American Crime Story roles. The Hispanic stars looked unrecognizable, while on the set of the upcoming FX series in Miami, Florida. Ricky, who plays Gianni Versace’s partner Antonio D'Amico, was spotted in costume sporting a shaggy fringe haircut, while wearing a vibrant, lime green shirt and black tank. Meanwhile his Venezuelan co-star, Édgar, who will portray Donatella Versace’s late brother in the show, has dyed his hair white for the role.

Ryan Murphy’s latest TV project follows the 1997 assassination of the renowned fashion designer, Gianni Versace. Speaking to Entertainment Weekly last October, Ryan admitted, "I was always very moved and freaked out by the Versace assassination, and I thought it was a really great story to do because it's a manhunt season. [Serial killer Andrew Cunanan] killed four people and then Versace, and was on the loose. We're exploring the reasons of how he got away with being undetected." He added, ”The tragedy of the Versace murder was that it should not have happened. He should have been caught by then. But he wasn't caught because he was targeting gay people, and people didn't care. That's why Gianni Versace was killed, for the most part...That is a true crime story in America, so we're tackling that."
