Rob Lowe cast as JFK in National Geographic film

NEW YORK (AP) — Rob Lowe will portray President John F. Kennedy in a National Geographic film about the former president’s 1963 assassination.

The National Geographic Channel said Tuesday that filming for “Killing Kennedy” would begin next month in Richmond, Va. The film is expected to air around the 50th anniversary of the shooting later this year and is based on the book by Bill O’Reilly.

National Geographic already had a hit earlier this year with an adaptation of another of the Fox News Channel anchor’s books, “Killing Lincoln.”

In addition to Lowe, the movie will feature Ginnifer Goodwin as the first lady and Michelle Trachtenberg as Marina Oswald.
