Best known for his role in Disney’s “Teen Beach, Ross Lynch bears an uncanny resemblance to infamous gay serial killer Jeffrey Dahmer, who was convicted of raping, murdering and eating seventeen men and boys between 1978 and 1991.
The 20-year-old Disney heartthrob was cast to play the Milwaukee Cannibal in the upcoming independent film My Friend Dahmer, which is based on the novel by Nerf Backderf who grew up with Dahmer in Ohio.
A side-by-side image of Dahmer (left) and Ross (right) was posted by Instagram by user @r5_rocks_rossy on Wednesday, with the caption, “It’s pretty uncanny how similar they look.”
The Wrap adds:
The isolated loner and closeted homosexual went on to become one of the most notorious serial killers of our generation, committing his first murder in the summer of 1978 at the age of 18.
Dahmer went to rape, murder and dismember 17 male victims between 1978 and 1991 before he was eventually caught when one man escaped from his apartment and alerted police after the killer said he was going to eat his heart.
