HLN confirmed the “Parks and Recreation” star has signed on to play Ashton in the TV flick tentatively titled “Prosecuting Casey Anthony.”
The film is based on Ashton’s best-selling book, “Imperfect Justice: Prosecuting Casey Anthony,” and the controversial case will be told from Ashton’s point of view, following the investigation into Anthony and the trial.
In a statement to HLN, Ashton says he is very pleased with the casting of Lowe. "I’m flattered that Lifetime has chosen Rob Lowe, a Golden Globe and Emmy Award nominee, to play me in a movie about my book," said Ashton. "I wish I had his boyish good looks. When I told my wife, she asked 'So does that mean I’m married to Rob Lowe now?' I look forward to meeting him."
