Rob Lowe 'Inhabits' President Kennedy for New TV Movie

Originally posted 10/22/2013 08:00AM

Rob Lowe took a thoughtful approach to playing one of our nation's most beloved public figures, John F. Kennedy.

"I think for known figures, the key is inhabitation, not imitation," Lowe says of his transformation into the 35th President for National Geographic Channel's Killing Kennedy, based on Bill O'Reilly and Martin Dugard's book.

It airs Nov. 10 – 12 days before the 50th anniversary of the JFK assassination.

Lowe had studied the Kennedys for some time, well before he was asked to play the role.

Socialite Jacqueline Bouvier married Massachusetts Sen. John F. Kennedy, scion of the powerful Boston clan, in Newport, R.I., on Sept. 12, 1953, and though it would be another seven years before the movie-star-beautiful couple would be ready to move into the White House, it easily could be said Camelot was born on their wedding day.

"The whole affair, said one enthusiastic guest, was 'just like a coronation,' " reported LIFE magazine, America's window on the world at the time.

To mark the 60th anniversary of the nuptials, LIFE.com offers a gallery of the very best of photographer Lisa Larsen's takes from Jack and Jackie's wedding album – capturing the bride's Battenburg gown of 50 yards of material, the groom's first bite (a fruit cup) and Jackie's dance with her new father-in-law, the imposing Joseph P. Kennedy.

Taylor Swift and Conor Kennedy's new romance is making headlines, but the Kennedy family's dashing good looks are old news.

In fact, Conor, 18, bears a striking resemblance to a young John F. Kennedy Jr., seen here at the age of 19. With messy dark hair and a furrowed brow, their likeness is unmistakeable.

In this snapshot, John Jr. – the son of Jacqueline and John F. Kennedy – is seen in 1980 enjoying Labor Day weekend on Cape Cod, at the Kennedy family's six-acre waterfront property in Hyannis Port, Mass. (JFK. Jr. died in a tragic 1999 plane crash, when he was 38.)

She was one of the world's most beloved yet mysterious women. And as a young widow following her husband's murder in 1963, Jacqueline Kennedy largely kept quiet in her torrent of grief.

Until now.

Eight and a half hours of recordings of Mrs. Kennedy from seven interviews in 1964, four months after the president's Nov. 22, 1963, murder, are set to be released as an audio book Wednesday. In excerpts published in The New York Times, the former first lady holds forth on everything from the Cuban Missile Crisis to the world's great leaders of the time to her own husband – whom she idolized to the end.
