Sometimes actors like to make a sharp change of direction: why not go from Disney to Dahmer? Young Ross Lynch, known for his part in Disney's Teen Beach, has donned the spectacles of cannibal serial killer Jeffrey Dahmer for the upcoming movie My Friend Dahmer. Check out the first picture of Lynch in the role.

As you can see, the resemblance is quite remarkable...

Director Marc Meyers — who penned the script for the movie based on Derf Backderf's graphic novel My Friend Dahmer — told EW that Ross has the perfect look to play the surprisingly handsome young killer:

I went through an exhaustive search to find an actor who I believed could play the role of Jeff Dahmer as a high school kid. I must have met with over 80 actors for the two main teen roles. I just locked into Ross when I met him. I felt that he both had the versatility as an actor and the look. I thought it was exciting that he was just ending his run as the lead of a Disney show and was the lead of their Teen Beach Movie franchise — but he looks like Jeff! And then, even more so, when you put some glasses on him.

Let's hope that Ross Lynch enjoys his killer new role...
