Former Disney star Ross Lynch has gone up against one of the hardest film assignments you can get — making a primative serial executioner amiable.
The “Austin and Ally” star plays Jeffrey Dahmer in “My Friend Dahmer” as a secondary school understudy, some time before he went on his lethal frenzies.
“Although you know he’s going to become a serial killer, it’s not hard to think of him as a human because he once was. And really, our film takes place at the time when he’s losing his humanity, when he’s becoming this monster. So, we have to start with him with his humanity,” said Lynch.
