First Look at Rob Lowe in “Killing Kennedy”

13 Jun

The first image from National Geographic’s forthcoming historical docu-drama Killing Kennedy has been released and it shows Rob Lowe recreating the famous official White House JFK portrait. The project is based on the book of the same name by Bill O’Reilly and Martin Dugard and will air in November, to coincide with the 50th anniversary of Kennedy’s assassination. The two-hour film looks at Kennedy’s final years as well as that of his assassin Lee Harvey Oswald (Last Resort’s Will Rothhaar). Once Upon a Time’s Ginnifer Goodwin is playing First Lady Jacqueline Kennedy and Gossip Girl favorite Michelle Trachtenberg is playing Oswald’s wife Marina.

Rob Lowe as JFKRob Lowe has already had a scene stealing turn in Behind the Candelabra this year as Dr. Jack Startz and a spinoff would be a dream come true; “Dr. Startz Investigates” is the best suggestion I’ve heard so far – he’s excellent at solving crimes because he always has a poker face. If the White House staff in Killing Kennedy is made up of everyone from The West Wing and Parks and Recreation then I would also be very happy.

Are you looking forward to another Kennedy biopic?

    The Mellie character is the weakest character on the show. All she does is talk and whine with her long meaningless monologues. When she does take an action step, it has negative results for her – East Sudan, hostages, forgin Fitz signature, outing Fitz’s affair, etc. Who rides to the rescue for the administration? Olivia.

    Is this really what is passing for strength now? It is a showy role for Bellamy but the character has no strength. The usual woman attaching herself to a man to gain power and not wanting to lose that power through a divorce.
