He's got the JFK look down, but does Rob Lowe nail that famous Kennedy accent? Decide for yourself in the first teaser video for "Killing Kennedy," National Geographic Channel's Nov. 10 movie adaptation of Bill O'Reilly's book.
The teaser is brief, but nonetheless includes all the iconic sights and sounds, from Lowe-as-JFK making a speech at the Presidential podium to Jackie Kennedy (Ginnifer Goodwin) in her pink suit with pillbox hat.
The movie, which also stars Will Rothhaar as Lee Harvey Oswald, Michelle Trachtenberg as Marina Oswald, Jack Noseworthy as Robert F. Kennedy, and Francis Guinan as Lyndon B. Johnson, was directed by "The West Wing" director Nelson McCormick, with "Before the Devil Knows You're Dead" screenwriter Kelly Masterson adapting O'Reilly and Martin Dugard's bestselling book for the film.
"Killing Kennedy" is airing during the month that will mark the 50th anniversary of the Nov. 22, 1963 assassination of JFK. The movie is debuting in the United States, and will then be broadcast in 171 countries and 48 languages around the world.
Another historical tie-in: the teaser's release date coincides with what would have been the 60th wedding anniversary of JFK and Jackie's Sept. 12, 1953 wedding at St. Mary's Church in Newport, Rhode Island.
"Killing Kennedy" premieres Sunday, Nov. 10 on NGC.
