He can pull it off. The guy is incredibly underestimated.

NewportBarGuy: He can pull it off. The guy is incredibly underestimated.


I don't know if I'd say he's underestimated, he's had a solid career and been in a lot of stuff, he seems to generally get respect as an actor.  He's most visible now for his role in Parks and Rec, but he's done plenty of drama in the past.

That's just because so many people want to shoot him.

Does he call Church Lady to have Satan exorcized from his buttocks?

JFK had sex with 16-year olds too?

I hope he works with a damn good dialect coach to get the accent down pat. There are plenty of people who remember hearing JFK speak, and if the voice is off - the whole portrayal will be off.

He looks pretty good from that angle... I'll just need to take a step back and to the left to be sure.

Did you trip...?

I watched WWII in HD, and if memory serves, he narrated one of the two journalists in that. The more I think about this, the less surprising it is that he'd be a good JFK.

Because A) Greenwood was a fine JFK, and B) even ifLowe does screw up the accent, it won't be "Costner" bad.

He can just call Martin Sheen.

I am doing that now.  Started last week, and am at the end of season 3.  Thank you Netflix (in fairness, Amazon Prime has it too).

Lowe looks more like RFK than JFK, but he's a good actor and I'm a big history buff, so I'll check this o--

Don't worry it's probably 95% ghost written. But then again what hack would write a serious historical book for O'Reilly.

I hear he pronounces it "chow-DERE" instead of "chowdah"

I'm shocked that absolutely no one has turned this into a Ginnifer Goodwin thread.

How do you accidentally sleep with a prostitute? Did he trip or something?

Bruce Greenwood's JFK in Thirteen Days was the best I've ever seen. Kinnear JFK was incredibly off-putting, because the whole time you can't help but think "Oh shiat that's Greg Kinnear."

Stephen Culp is an ABSOLUTE dead-ringer for Bobby Kennedy. No surprise he played him a few times.

rukusrazor: I didn't hate Kinnear's JFK in "The Kennedy's"...


same here. For the ruckus raised over that movie, I thought it was damn good and Kinnear was a good JFK. And of course, Barry Piper (Is that his name?) was so good as RFK that he got an emmy.

Now Katie Holmes as Jackie on the other hand...nope.

I recently watched the entire series on Netflix. West Wing was literally the best thing Rob Lowe had ever done. His Sam Seaborn was literally a fantastic, dynamic, fully formed character.
I was struck by how similar the situations portrayed in West Wing mirror the politics of today. Name any major issue and they dealt with it. And 10 years later, we're still dealing with those same issues in the real world.
But you can almost physically feel the gears come grinding to a halt when Sorkin left. And the horrible Alexa Junge should never have been anywhere near a show like West Wing.

Me too.  Greg wasn't horrible.  Katie Holmes was terrible.  Barry Pepper is good in almost anything.

Lowe is a good actor.  He will most likely do well in this.  Goodwin looks very much like Jackie except Jackie wore nowhere near that amount of makeup.

Lets ask the guy from the grassy knoll.  He saw it.

/found out Woody Harrelson's dad claimed to be the second shooter
//the car is at the Henry Ford Museum, read the plaque and then look where JFK was sitting.  It made me jump, because till then I didn't believe the second shooter theory.
///Not saying we will learn anything new that will change anything

Same here. I would come home and devour 4-5 episodes at a time. It was incredibly well written and acted. Just an amazing show overall.
