The actor's credits include the film "Battle: Los Angeles," and TV shows "Listen Up" and "Last Resort."

Rob Lowe is to play President John F. Kennedy in "Killing Kennedy," while Ginnifer Goodwin will play Jacqueline Kennedy and Michelle Trachtenberg will play Marina Oswald in the upcoming 2-hour movie based on Bill O'Reilly's book.
