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.

Lawyers for Virginia opposes any halt to execution of Ricky Gray

An effort by spree killer Ricky Javon Gray to stop his scheduled Jan. 18 execution by injection is based on speculation and anecdotal evidence from other states must fail, argues the Virginia Attorney General’s office.

Gray’s lawyers are challenging Virginia’s plan to use drugs that were not created by pharmaceutical manufactures. Citing botched executions elsewhere, they contend the use of the drugs could lead to cruel and unusual punishment and suggested that a firing squad would be more humane than either death by injection or the electric chair.

They have filed a request for a temporary restraining order and preliminary injunction to halt the execution.
