Richard Jenkins to Play Jeffrey Dahmer's Dad in Ryan Murphy's Next Netflix Series

Ryan Murphy has set up his next limited series at Netflix and he’ll be following the story of serial killer Jeffrey Dahmer.

Monster: The Jeffrey Dahmer Story “chronicles the story of one of America’s most notorious serial killers, 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,” according to Deadline.

Richard Jenkins has been cast in the series as Dahmer’s father Lionel, “a chemist, who showed him how to safely bleach and preserve animal bones when he was a child, a technique Jeffrey later gave a sinister twist with his victims.”

Ryan and co-creator Ian Brennan are currently looking for the right actor to play Dahmer. The lead female character will be Dahmer’s neighbor Glenda Cleveland, who tried to warn law enforcement about the killer’s behavior.

The pilot will be directed by Mindhunter‘s Carl Franklin and Pose‘s Janet Mock is on board to write and direct several episodes.
