Rob Lowe Is John F. Kennedy in First Photo Released from ‘Killing Kennedy’

Ask not what you can do for your country but…what you can do to promote Bill O’Reilly’s media empire. The first image of Rob Lowe as John F. Kennedy in the two-hour National Geographic Channel movie, Killing Kennedy, based on the book by Bill O’Reilly, has been released. The movie, which documents the circumstances surrounding JFK’s assassination, will air this November in time for the 50th anniversary of his death. And in the first image we’ve seen of Lowe as the late president, he’s striking an appropriately reverent pose. Actually, it’s based on Kennedy’s iconic presidential portrait. Check it out.

Editor/Interactive Content Director Christian Blauvelt is’s expert for all things geek. Can’t tell the difference between a Kowakian monkey lizard and a Krayt dragon? Don’t know whether to order a raktajino or a Romulan Ale from your Ferengi barman? He’s your geek! This knowledge was acquired over many years of rigorous training during his youth on the swamp planet St. Petersburg, FL. Think of him like Channing Tatum in Magic Mike but with entertainment journalism in place of the custom furniture ambitions and minus the washboard abs. A stint on the ice planet Hoth (Northwestern University) finally led to him coming to Coruscant (New York City), where he helps share his knowledge with you all. He will desperately try to avoid puns like, "Set phasers for phun!"
