Rob Lowe will play Casey Anthony prosecutor

tbd-roblowe050712.jpgRob Lowe enjoyed being in a Lifetime movie so much, he's agreed to do it again. Now he'll be portraying Jeff Ashton, the lawyer who went after Casey Anthony, whom you may recall as having a quick, quiet trial in Orlando on accusations she murdered her 2-year-old daughter, Caylee.

Lowe, 48, worked for the network before in a movie called Drew Peterson: Untouchable, about the Illinois police officer accused of killing his third and fourth wives. The new movie will be based on Ashton's book, Improper Justice: Prosecuting Casey Anthony, People reports.

"We're thrilled to have Rob returning to our network, after his amazing star turn as Drew Peterson," Lifetime's Rob Sharenow said. "He's one of those rare stars who can do it all, comedy, drama, heroes and villains." Rob does seem partial to courtrooms lately, though.
