Like always, Ryan Murphy is turning to his “American Horror Story” alum to cast his new Netflix series, “Monster: The Jeffrey Dahmer Story,” TVline reports. According to the site, Murphy has cast long-time “AHS” star, Evan Peters, as the infamous serial killer in the limited series.
Monster tells the tale of one of America’s most infamous killers, who was convicted of murdering 17 men and boys from 1978 to 1991, with his methods including mutilation, necrophilia, and cannibalism.  The series will focus on the perspective of Dahmer’s victims and will also look at the police incompetence and apathy that allowed the Wisconsin native to go on a multiyear killing spree, with Dahmer (aka the “Milwaukee Cannibal”) repeatedly being nearly apprehended but then let go by a justice system that saw him as harmless. Later he was arrested and sentenced but was killed in prison by a fellow inmate before justice could be served.
Emmy winner Richard Jenkins (Six Feet UnderOlive Kitteridge) will play the role of Dahmer’s father Lionel, a chemist who showed a young Jeffrey how to bleach and preserve animal bones — a technique Dahmer later used on his victims. Penelope Ann Miller, meanwhile, will play Dahmer’s mother.
