“Austin and Ally” star Ross Lynch recently took on a role worlds away from Disney.
Lynch plays famed serial killer and cannibal Jeffrey Dahmer, also known as the Milwaukee Cannibal. The 20-year-old actor plays the serial killer before the latter’s life of crime, as a teenager in the film adaptation of the 2012 graphic novel “My Friend Dahmer”.
The resemblance between the actor and criminal are uncanny. Here is Dahmer as a teenager.
And here is Lynch in wardrobe as the man himself.
Even the author of the graphic novel Derf Backderf, who was friends with Dahmer in high school, was put off by the pair’s similarities.
The Milwaukee Cannibal raped, murdered, and dismembered at least 17 men and boys between 1978 and 1991. “My Friend Dahmer” is expected to come out sometime in 2017, according to MTV News.
