Rob Lowe on 'transforming' into Drew Peterson

Rob Lowe underwent quite a transformation to play Drew Peterson in this month's Lifetime movie, "Untouchable," and the actor is revealing how he prepared to play the infamous former police sergeant from Illinois. (Peterson is currently in jail, having been accused of killing his third wife, and is suspected in the disappearance of his fourth.)

In an interview with "Showbiz Tonight's" A.J. Hammer, Lowe says he paid close attention to the way Peterson behaved in live interviews.

"I watched him talk about being on 'Dial a Date' — 'Win a Date with Drew Peterson' - when people were searching for his missing wife at the same moment. I watched this outrageous behavior," Lowe recalls. "So I knew there was going to be a lot of [complex] stuff to play."
