Max Greenfield is headed back to Ryan Murphy land!

On Friday, Murphy treated fans to an Instagram photo of Darren Criss and Greenfield, who was sporting a scruffy-looking beard and burgundy button-up shirt, on the set of Versace: American Crime Story.

"Do The Hustle. Darren Criss and Max Greenfield on the set of The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story," wrote Murphy, revealing the show's official title.

Based on Maureen Orth’s book Vulgar Favors: Andrew Cunanan, Gianni Versace, and the Largest Failed Manhunt in U.S. History, the series centers on the July 1997 assassination of Gianni Versace on the steps of his Miami Beach mansion by sociopath and serial killer Andrew Cunanan (Criss), who had murdered at least five others in the months leading up to the designer's death. Cunanan's motives were never revealed.

No word on who Greenfield will play, but the 36-year-old actor joins Édgar Rarmirez, who tackles the lead role of Gianni, Penélope Cruz, who will portray Donatella Versace, and Ricky Martin as Versace’s longtime partner Antonio D’Amico.
