It seems there's no stopping Lady Gaga's transformation from musician to a true bonafide actress after the news that she's now set to portray Donatella Versace in the American Crime Story series. Inspiration should come easy for Gaga who is already close friends with the fashion designer, even penning the song "Donatella" in her 2013 album Artpop.

The new season of the popular series, titled Versace/Cunanan: American Crime Story, will focus on the murder of Donatella's brother Gianni in 1997, the victim of a shooting spree by Andrew Cunanan. Production reportedly begins in 2017 and Gaga is set to feature even more on our screens following the recent announcement that she will be playing the lead role in the remake of A Star is Born.

Meanwhile, watch Lady Gaga's video "Perfect Illusion", taken off her newly launched album Joanne.
