Rob Lowe Gets Presidential In First ‘Killing Kennedy’ Image

Former West Wing star Rob Lowe is back in the White House in the first image from National Geographic Channel’s upcoming factual drama Killing Kennedy. Lowe stars as 35th President John F. Kennedy, and the photo recreates the President’s iconic pose from his official portrait.

Based on the book of the same name by Bill O’Reilly and Martin Dugard, Killing Kennedy is a two hour drama that will explore the days leading up to President Kennedy’s assassination, as well as the events that followed his untimely death. In addition to Lowe, the cast also includes Once Upon A Time‘s Ginnifer Goodwin as Jacqueline Kennedy, Gossip Girl‘s Michelle Trachtenberg as Marina Oswald (in her first Russian-speaking role) and Last Resort‘s Will Rothhaar as Lee Harvey Oswald.

Killing Kennedy is set to premiere November 2013 on the National Geographic Channel.
