Rob Lowe looks eerily like President John F. Kennedy in this photo reenactment of the iconic portrait of the Unites States' 35th president. (Check out the original portrait here, to see just how similar they are.)

The "Parks and Recreation" and former "West Wing" star will play JFK in National Geographic Channel's two-hour docu-drama, "Killing Kennedy," based on the best-selling book by Bill O'Reilly and Martin Dugard.

"Killing Kennedy" chronicles the final years of Kennedy and his assassin Lee Harvey Oswald (Will Rothhaar), leading up to their deaths in November 1963. Ginnifer Goodwin will play first lady Jacqueline Kennedy, and Michelle Trachtenberg will portray Oswald's wife Marina.

The film will debut in November, timed with the 50th anniversary of Kennedy's death.

Tell us: Do you think Rob Lowe will make a good JFK? What do you think of this portrait?
