The first pic of Ross Lynch as Jeffrey Dahmer is here — and he definitely doesn’t look anything like himself.
Instead, he looks really really really similar to the actual Jeffery Dahmer, a guy who would grow up to be a serial killer, which is why Ross is perfect for this role.
The first look of Ross debuted with Entertainment Weekly, and writer/director Marc Meyers opened up more about why Ross was the perfect actor for the part.
“I went through an exhaustive search to find an actor who I believed could play the role of Jeff Dahmer as a high school kid,” Marc shared. “I must have met with over 80 actors for the two main teen roles. I just locked into Ross when I met him.”
He added, “I felt that he both had the versatility as an actor and the look. I thought it was exciting that he was just ending his run as the lead of a Disney show and was the lead of their Teen Beach Movie franchise — but he looks like Jeff! And then, even more so, when you put some glasses on him.”
