Rob Lowe will play JFK in NatGeo's 'Killing Kennedy'

West Wing alum Rob Lowe is headed back to the Oval Office for yet another basic cable movie, playing John F. Kennedy in a National Geographic film about the president's assassination. He's a couple years older than JFK was in 1963, but the charisma is pretty comparable.

Killing Kennedy will begin shooting in Virginia later this month, based on Bill O'Reilly's book, the AP reports. It should be ready for the November anniversary of the Dallas shooting.

Ginnifer Goodwin will play Jackie and Michelle Trachtenberg will be Marina Oswald in the movie. NatGeo made O'Reilly's book Killing Lincoln into a movie earlier this year, too. It seems he has a preoccupation with that kind of thing.
