Ryan Murphy has reportedly cast long-time American Horror Story collaborator Evan Peters as Jeffrey Dahmer for his upcoming Netflix limited series, Monster: The Jeffrey Dahmer Story, according to . The show will also star another Murphy-verse regular, Niecy Nash, as well as Penelope Ann Miller, Colin Ford, and Shaun J. Brown. Netflix has yet to comment on this casting.
Monster is set to dramatize the real life events surrounding Dahmer, the serial killer responsible for the murders of 17 men over 13 years. The show will focus largely on the perspective of his victims and explore the various reasons Dahmer was allowed to kill for as long as he did, including police incompetence and general apathy toward the victims themselves, who were largely people of color. There were at least ten instances where Dahmer was very nearly apprehended by the authorities but ultimately allowed to walk free, which will feature heavily in the series.
