Evan Peters and Ryan Murphy are teaming up again!
The 34-year-old actor has signed on to play serial killer Jeffrey Dahmer in the upcoming Netflix limited series Monster: The Jeffrey Story created by longtime collaborators Ryan and Ian Brennan, Deadline reports.
Here’s the synopsis: “Monster chronicles the story of one of America’s most notorious serial killers (Peters), largely told from the point of view of Dahmer’s victims, and dives deeply into the police incompetence and apathy that allowed the Wisconsin native to go on a multiyear killing spree. The series dramatizes at least 10 instances where Dahmer was almost apprehended but ultimately let go. The series also is expected to touch on white privilege, as Dahmer, a clean-cut, good-looking white guy, was repeatedly given a free pass by cops as well as by judges who were lenient when he had been charged with petty crimes.”
It was also announced that Penelope Ann Miller has been cast as Jeffrey‘s mother, while it was previously announced that this actor will be playing Jeffrey‘s father.
Shaun J. Brown has also joined the cast as Tracy, Jeffrey‘s last intended victim, who fought back, managed to escape, and helped the police arrest Jeffrey.
Niecy Nash and Colin Ford will also be starring in Monster.
