I am an autistic filmmaker named Christian Frates and I personally believe my favorite character from the Scream franchise, Randy Meeks could be on the spectrum. I loved Jamie Kennedy’s performance and he should have stayed alive in an alternate reality where he still lived.
Randy could be on the spectrum because he obsessively talks about film and doesn’t understand social cues. He naturally works at a video store and likes figuring out who could be the Ghostface killer. “There’s a formula to it! A VERY… SIMPLE… FORMULA! EVERYBODY’S A SUSPECT!!!”
I am glad Jamie Kennedy played this fan-favorite and I think Randy is a positive example of an autistic man.
