Hollywood actor Rob Lowe has signed up to star in a new movie detailing the trial of Casey Anthony, the Florida woman who was cleared of killing her young daughter in a headline-grabbing court case last year (11).
The West Wing star will play real-life prosecutor Jeff Ashton in an upcoming Lifetime TV film based on the attorney's best-selling book Imperfect Justice: Prosecuting Casey Anthony, which was released shortly after Anthony was acquitted last July (11).
Anthony was accused of drugging her two-year-old daughter Caylee and suffocating her with duct tape in 2008, but her lawyers claimed the youngster accidentally drowned.
Anthony was found not guilty of charges including first degree murder in her explosive trial, which hit headlines across the world, and she walked free due to time already served after being sentenced to four years in prison for lying to police.
Lowe previously starred in another Lifetime crime drama this year (12), taking on the role of a real-life accused killer in Drew Peterson: Untouchable.
Lifetime boss Rob Sharenow says, "We're thrilled to have Rob returning to our network, after his amazing star turn as Drew Peterson. He's one of those rare stars who can do it all, comedy, drama, heroes and villains. There are very few actors in the history of our business who have been able to have such success on such a broad range."
