Ross Lynch On Playing Jeffrey Dahmer, Welcoming Gay Fans & Becoming A Star Comments (0)

Twenty-one-year-old Ross Lynch, who starred as a crushworthy musician on Disney Channel's Austin & Ally for five years and who headed up two Teen Beach Movie installments for the network,  isn't on the typical Mouse House trajectory of some of his forebears.

When I met him back in 2012, he struck me as a potential future Michael Jackson or Justin Timberlake, displaying effortless dance skills and bursting into song while I attempted to corral him for an interview for the teen mag I founded. He also had mega-charm, enough to stick out among a cast of talents that included similarly charismatic Garrett Clayton.

Instead of a solo journey, Lynch surprised me by eschewing the Hilary/Miley/Demi/Selena route, focusing on music with his mostly-family rock band R5 and, now, by choosing a movie role that represents a 180 from his perky Disney character Austin Moon, that of a teenage Jeffrey Dahmer before his serial-killing days in the well-received My Friend Dahmer.

It's a disturbing film, one that could best be described as coming-of-rage.

My Review of My Friend Dahmer

In the film, which is in theaters now, he brings to life a pathologically awkward teenage boy whose family trouble, social-outcast status and verboten, unannounced homosexuality make him strangely relatable ... until you remind yourself that the character would, in real life, grow up to kill and eat a bunch of innocent dudes.

I spoke with Lynch about this unique moment in his life and career, when everybody's niece knows him and more adults are getting the memo every day, as well as all about the bold-as-hell movie that is helping to put him on the grown-up map ...

WIDGETYouTube: Earlier this year, I reviewed the brave, bold My Friend Dahmer starring my friend Ross Lynch. Now, the trailer is here:

WIDGETJoe.My.God.: Trump thinks Obamacare has been laying waste to the U.S for 17 years. Lady behind him has eyebrows that qualify as pre-existing condition:

Trumpcare-eyebrowsI know someone in her family is sick, but still. Still. (Video still)

WIDGETThe Guardian: Jared Kushner closed a real estate deal with the firm of a Russian oligarch that's cited in a money-laundering case. Curiouser, curiouser.

WIDGETHuff Post: Trump shamelessly uses Boy Scout jamboree to humiliate Price, demand Obamacare repeal votes, ask boys to cheer him/boo Obama.

WIDGETDListed: Justin Bieber just did to his fans what China recently did to him.

Spoilers!

The film, as I have told you, is pretty great.

Fun fact: None of these guys were even born when Dahmer was murdered in prison.

I Was A Teenage Serial Killer: A Review Of MY FRIEND DAHMER Comments (0)

I knew teen heartthrob Ross Lynch back when he was grinning his way through DSC02402edit Disney Channel's Austin & Ally (2011-2016).

I guess I could write a script called My Friend Lynch, but I can guarantee you it wouldn't be as rich as the film My Friend Dahmer, directed by Marc Meyers and adapted from Derf Backderf's graphic novel of the same name, because unlike Dahmer, Ross didn't go on to kill a bunch of people, and because my interaction with him was confined to taking the Teen Beach Movie (2013) cast to brunch during filming and directing a photo shoot of Ross for the teen magazine I edited.

But my dealings with Lynch did partly motivate me to buy tickets to Dahmer at the Tribeca Film Festival, because there is a nostalgia for seeing what happens to people you knew in the past, and how interesting that the tow-headed, moonwalking kid who loved pink underwear and pop was — five years later — making his debut as the lead in a feature film playing one of the most notorious serial killers who ever lived, the Milwaukee Cannibal himself, Jeffrey Dahmer.
