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.

It's true – Chris Traeger and Ann Perkins are peacing out of Pawnee.
Mike Schur, Parks and Recreation's executive producer, confirms that Rob Lowe and Rashida Jones are set to exit the series.
"The news about Rob and Rashida is true – they will be leaving the show after the 13th episode of the upcoming season six. We've been working on their storyline (on and off) for four seasons now, and heading into this year, with the two of them contemplating parenthood, it felt like a natural time to move them into the next phase," Schur said in a statement.

He already loves Parks and Recreation, and now Rob Lowe is adding "wildlife rescue" to his growing list of interests.
As part of Procter & Gamble's Dawn Saves Wildlife campaign, the Golden Globe nominee will be narrating a documentary web series called The Big Picture, highlighting the rescue efforts of the Marine Mammal Center and the International Bird Rescue, which saves wildlife from oil spills using Dawn dish soap.
You might be wondering: What does the actor have to do with animals? Actually, leading a charitable life has been on Lowe's agenda since he was 15.

The first photo from Killing Kennedy requires a double take.
Rob Lowe, 49 – who portrays John F. Kennedy in National Geographic Channel's film adaptation of Bill O'Reilly and Martin Dugard's book, Killing Kennedy: The End of Camelot – looks like the real deal as the iconic president who was assassinated in 1963 at age 46.
The film, set for a small-screen release in November, also stars Ginnifer Goodwin as First Lady Jacqueline Kennedy, and Michelle Trachtenberg as Lee Harvey Oswald's wife, Marina Oswald.

As Dr. Startz, Liberace's plastic surgeon, in Behind the Candelabra, Rob Lowe revealed an astonishing physical transformation.
"I wanted him to be at once repellant and engaging, if that's possible. He reminded me of a certain genus and species of guy that you would see at Laker games during the Magic Johnson era," Lowe told EW.com.
Lowe, 49, adds that the transformation – which took an hour and 45 minutes every day – involved several makeup tests to get the look and feel of the doctor's face just right.

That's one way to establish yourself as a jetsetter.
Rob Lowe strapped on a jetpack to get a taste of the air up there on March 20 in Newport Beach, Calif.
Wearing a helmet as gusts of water stream by him, Lowe couldn't hide his smile as he soared through the air.
Lowe, 49, was enjoying one expensive toy – the newest model of the Jetlev water propelled jetpack he's seen wearing retails for around $68,500.
But maybe a little fun was just what the actor – who is the new curator for InsideHook.com – needed after recently starring in Lifetime's dramatic Prosecuting Casey Anthony.

Casey Anthony's getting a new look.
A week into the filming of the Lifetime movie Imperfect Justice, the role of the woman acquitted last year of murdering her 2-year-old daughter has been recast.
Canadian actress Holly DeVeaux has dropped out of the project, replaced by Virginia Welch, an actress who has starred in several independent films and commercials.
According to a source close to the production, the decision for DeVeaux to leave the production was mutual.

Jose Baez, the attorney who represented Casey Anthony, has written a tell-all book about the trial – and says his controversial client won't make any money off of it.
The 352-page book, titled Presumed Guilty: Casey Anthony: The Inside Story, will hit bookstores in July – a year after Anthony was acquitted of murdering her 2-year-old daughter, Caylee.
"Casey will not financially benefit from this book in any way, shape or form," Baez tells PEOPLE. "This is my story, not hers."
