Macaulay Culkin Joins “American Horror Story” Season 10
Evan Peters has completely transformed his look for his upcoming role as convicted serial killer and sex offender Jeffrey Dahmer.
On Tuesday, June 8, the 34-year-old Mare of Easttown star was photographed in costume for the first time while on the Los Angeles set of the forthcoming Netflix limited series, Monster: The Jeffrey Dahmer Story. Evan’s role as the title character in the 10-episode project from co-creators Ryan Murphy and Ian Brennan was first announced in March.
To play the criminal who was captured in 1991 and later sentenced to 16 lifetime prison terms before he was killed by a fellow inmate in 1994, Evan sported blonde hair and glasses, along with a checkered shirt and jeans. The actor, known for previously collaborating with Ryan Murphy on American Horror Story, can be seen in character in the below photo.
The true-crime series’ cast also includes Richard Jenkins, who is playing Jeffrey’s father. In addition, Niecy Nash portrays Glenda Cleveland, a Milwaukee woman who reported Jeffrey months before he was eventually arrested in July 1991.
In April, Evan spoke to Variety about his approach to portraying the murderer who has been the subject of previous Hollywood projects, including Ross Lynch’s performance for the 2017 Hulu film My Friend Dahmer.
“You can have all the backstory you want, but at the end of the day, we’re not making a documentary,” Evan explained. “It’s more about maintaining the idea and the through line of why you’re telling the story and always having that as your guiding light.”
