May 31 (UPI) -- Darren Criss surprised fans this week by going nude on the set of American Crime Story: Versace.
The 30-year-old actor shared a naked selfie Tuesday while filming Season 3 of the FX series.
"So what's more red? My sunburn, my speedo, or YOUR FACE??? #ACSVersace," he captioned the photo for his 1.7 million Instagram followers.
Criss will play Andrew Cunanan, the serial killer who murdered fashion designer Gianni Versace in 1997, in Versace. He previously worked with American Crime Story executive producer Ryan Murphy on Glee and American Horror Story: Hotel.

"We have been talking for several years about doing something dark and adult together. And this role seemed like an exciting and unexpected fit," he explained.
"Do The Hustle. @darrencriss and @maxgreenfield on the set of The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story," he wrote.
Criss is known for playing Blaine Anderson on Glee, and for starring in Broadway productions of How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying and Hedwig and the Angry Inch. He is also slated to appear in the film Smitten!.
