Sooooooo that’s going to be a creepy one. The first trailer has been released for the movie My Friend Dahmer due out later this year. The film is based on the novel by John “Derf” Backderf, from 2012. Backderf was friends Dahmer before his serial killing days according to RollingStone.
The actor playing Jeffrey Dahmer is Ross Lynch of the Disney Channel and had never even heard the story of Dahmer before landing the role. He told Rolling Stone,“they were like, ‘Hey, do you know who Jeffrey Dahmer is?’ I had no idea”. “I thought it was awesome to just be unpredictable. Hopefully my next role could be something that most people won’t expect from me.”
From YouTube: Jeffrey Dahmer murdered 17 men and boys in the Midwest United States between 1978 and 1991 before being captured and incarcerated. He would become one of America’s most infamous serial killers. This is the story before that story.
