Rob Lowe has signed on to star in an upcoming Lifetime Original Movie, with the working title "Prosecuting Casey Anthony," as Florida prosecutor Jeff Ashton.
The movie will follow the highly controversial murder trial of Caylee Anthony and is based on Ashton's best-selling book, "Imperfect Justice: Prosecuting Casey Anthony."
Rob Lowe released his autobiography, "Stories I Only Tell My Friends" this week, where he wrote candidly about his love of acting, his infamous 1988 sex tape scandal, alcoholism and his many relations leading up to his happy 20-year marriage.
"In most other areas of my life, I am slightly behind the curve, retiring, sometimes unsure," he wrote in his autobiography. "But when it comes to anything to do with dreams of being an actor I am filled with what I would later learn is called chutzpah."
Amy Poehler and the cast of NBC's comedy "Parks and Recreation" did a panel at Paleyfest and confirmed that there will indeed be a romantic connection between Poehler's character Leslie Knope and the government auditor, Ben Wyatt, who's played by Adam Scott.
When asked about how Poehler and Scott prepared for their on-screen kiss, the actors joked that they practiced beforehand.
Rob Lowe cannot replace Charlie Sheen on the CBS series "Two and a Half Men," as rumors suggest, because he is bound under contract to continue to star in "Parks and Recreation," a producer of the NBC show says.
Lowe's spokesperson had declined to comment on recent reports that said the 46-year-old actor and John Stamos were among the possible contenders to star in "Two and a Half Men"' after Sheen was fired earlier this week following erratic rants he made against its co-creator.
