Ross Lynch Didn't Know Who Jeffrey Dahmer Was Before Playing Him in 'My Friend Dahmer'

Ross Lynch sits next to director Marc Meyers during their appearance on Build Series in New York City on Wednesday (November 1).

Together, the two chatted about their new film, My Friend Dahmer, which opens in theaters on Friday, November 3rd.

Ross spoke earlier with US Weekly about his research on the serial killer.

“When I was on Disney Channel, I was thinking of the projects that I wanted to do next,” Ross says. “I wanted to do something that was darker, a more intense character.”

“When the script fell into my lap, at the time, I didn’t know who Jeffrey Dahmer was. It’s a little bit before my time.”

And his research was intense, too.

“I started researching Dahmer and he’s tragically interesting,” he adds. “The crimes that he committed are, unfortunately, terrifying and devastating. But they are interesting.”

Ross Lynch Imagines A Dark 'Austin & Ally' Reboot

Ross Lynch Imagines A Dark 'Austin & Ally' Reboot

When we all imagine an Austin & Ally reunion or reboot of any kind, we think of a big blockbuster movie, yes? YES!

However, it looks like the cast has some other ideas.

Ross Lynch, who played Austin Moon on the series, spoke to ET recently about a possible reboot and he’s envisioning something much more…”explicit”.

“We had this joke for a long time on Austin & Ally where we wanted to do like maybe 10 years later, an HBO special where it’s gone completely explicit,” Ross shared. “But we’ll see.”

He adds, “Honestly, I would be totally down to do that. I really love all those people, they’re all really good people.”

“That was like a joke when we were filming but anything’s possible at this point,” Ross adds.

Anyone else down for the “Austin & Ally: Where Are They Now?” HBO special?

Ross Lynch & Alex Wolff Avoided Each Other While Filming 'My Friend Dahmer'

Ross Lynch & Alex Wolff Avoided Each Other While Filming 'My Friend Dahmer'

It’s hard to believe that Ross Lynch and Alex Wolff only spent one day together while they weren’t filming My Friend Dahmer.

Alex explains to EW that that is exactly what happened.

“I met Ross a few days before, and we hung out in the hotel room and played music and laughed,” he shared with the magazine. “Then him and I looked at each other, and we were like, ‘We’re probably going to have to not hang out again until this movie’s over.’”

“I was like, ‘I’m glad we got to hang out as ourselves, [but] let’s keep a distance,’” Alex says. “And me and Ross barely talked the whole movie, because we wanted to feel like, even the scenes where we were together, we weren’t really together.”

The feel of the entire movie is dark, so we definitely understand their reasoning for the disconnect.

Alex adds, “I loved the idea that we could be next to each other the whole movie, but that it could feel like we were thousands of miles away from each other.”

My Friend Dahmer hits select theaters on Friday, November 3rd.

Ross Lynch Will Give You Such A Creepy Feeling in 'My Friend Dahmer's Official Trailer

Ross Lynch Will Give You Such A Creepy Feeling in 'My Friend Dahmer's Official Trailer

Ross Lynch takes out his anger on a tree as Jeffrey Dahmer in the first trailer for My Friend Dahmer.

The film centers on the teenage years of the famed serial killer, who as an awkward teenager is struggling to make it through high school with a family life in ruins. He collects roadkill, fixates on a neighborhood jogger (Vincent Kartheiser), and copes with his unstable mother (Anne Heche) and well-intentioned father (Dallas Roberts).

He begins to act out at school, and his goofball antics win over a group of band-nerds who form The Dahmer Fan Club, headed by Derf Backderf (Alex Wolff). But this camaraderie can’t mask his growing depravity. Approaching graduation, Jeff spirals further out of control, inching ever closer to madness.

My Friend Dahmer is out on November 3rd.
