Martin is best known for his singing career, but has also had roles on Glee and appeared on Broadway in Evita and Les Miserables. His most recent album won the best Latin pop album award at the 2016 Grammy Awards.

Versace: American Crime Story will explore the death of Gianni Versace, who was murdered on the steps of his home in Miami Beach by serial killer Andrew Cunanan. Cunanan killed five people that year and then killed himself on a house boat eight days after killing Versace.

Martin joins Penelope Cruz, who will play Donatella Versace, Edgar Ramirez, who will play Gianni Versace, and Darren Criss, who will star as Cunanan.

Versace: American Crime Story is expected to air in 2018 on FX.
