For his next role, Rob Lowe's headed for the White House.
The 49-year-old actor, fresh off a stint playing Liberace's plastic surgeon in HBO Films' "Behind the Candelabra," has lined up a gig playing President John F. Kennedy.
According to Deadline, Lowe will portray the president in National Geographic Channel's "Killing Kennedy," a two-hour drama based on the book by Bill O'Reilly and Martin Dugard.
The story begins in 1959, and follows the parallel lives of Kennedy and assassin Lee Harvey Oswald up until their paths cross in 1963.
Ginnifer Goodwin will play former First Lady Jackie O., while Michelle Trachtenberg has signed on to play Oswald's wife Marina.
"Killing Kennedy" is set to begin production in June to prepare for a release on National Geographic later this year.
Remember when National Geographic was about nature, culture, and science. Now this?
He's not gay!? How dare he parade that face around and not be gay!

I can't tell who is more attractive: the guy on the left or the guy on the right.
Congratulations, Mr. Lowe. What an honor. I'm listening to the book right now. I'm sure you'll do a GREAT job. Best wishes.
That book was 100% written by Martin Dugard. O'Reilly contributed nothing except the $$ to have his name and ugly mug on the book jacket.

While I normally find you to be nothing more than a boring, slow-witted annoyance, for once I am going to have to agree with you - Rob Lowe is just.plain.gorgeous! I get damp just looking at him. It's too bad he's not gay, or I'd be all over that!
