Rob Lowe plays President John F. Kennedy on the set of National Geographic Channel's "Killing Kennedy."

Last year, Rob Lowe impressed many with his uncanny resemblance to convicted murderer Drew Peterson when he starred in Lifetime's "Untouchable: The Drew Peterson Story."

Now, the "Parks and Recreation" star is playing President John F. Kennedy in National Geographic Channel's two-hour original drama "Killing Kennedy," which is based on the best-selling of the same title.

In a newly released photo, Lowe is striking a pose Kennedy made famous in his official portrait -- and he manages to look very much like the former president.

Ginnifer Goodwin ("Big Love" and "Once Upon a Time") will play former first lady Jacqueline Kennedy.

The film, based on a book co-written by Fox News host Bill O'Reilly, began production in Virginia this week.

National Geographic plans to air "Killing Kennedy" in November.
