Quitting the dating game

As Huck in ABC’s “Scandal,” Guillermo Diaz is accustomed to playing a dark figure who does morally questionable things.But his new role as convicted serial killer Rodney Alcala in Investigation Discovery’s (ID) first scripted true crime project, “The Dating Game Killer,” takes things to a whole other level.

He was finally sentenced to death in 2010, but he’s actually still alive today.

Ahead of the premiere of “The Dating Game Killer,” Diaz talks with about embodying the man and the monster, as well as if he feels justice was served with Alcala’s eventual sentence.

There is so much information available about Rodney Alcala and his crimes today.

But having that information about his family, which we touch on in the film, that helped me stay grounded.

Did you talk to Rodney or his family or victims’ families to understand him further?
