    Drew Peterson tries to stop movie about him

    Drew Peterson, a former police officer charged with murdering his third wife and suspected in the disappearance of his fourth, joked that he'd rather see Denzel Washington play him than Rob Lowe when he heard there would be a television movie about him. Now, though, he wants to pull the plug on the project.

    Thought you saw Rob Lowe around Los Alamitos recently? Only he looked a little older than you thought he would be? Relax, you’re not hallucinating. The busy actor is shooting a Lifetime network movie in the Rossmoor neighborhood, with his hair dyed gray for the role.


    “Untouchable” is the movie in which Lowe plays the real-life character of Drew Peterson, an Illinois police sergeant who allegedly killed his third wife, and who was suspected but not charged in the disappearance of his fourth.

    Who, in this Hollywood world, thought to pick Rob Lowe to play Drew Peterson? That's the worst "fit" I've ever heard of. Drew Peterson looks like an old, debauched, ugly, self-centered, narcissistic blow-hard who thinks he can fool the world and get away with anything. He is overweight and simply gross.

    Rob Lowe would have to be "remade" top to bottom to even come close to resembling this piece of nasty. Bad casting doesn't come close to describing this. Someone must have been paid off to get Lowe for the job. Maybe it's cause he has name recognition, but it sure ain't because he looks super ugly. Sheesh

    I just saw the previews and it actually looks like Rob Lowe has Peterson's looks, mannerisms, behavior, and attitude down cold. He does play a lot of psychos in made-for-tv movies, and is pretty convincing--he was great as Bart Corbin, the dentist who killed a girlfriend and then his wife, and tried to make both look like suicides. In case you didn't read the book or see the movie, it's "Too Late to Say Goodbye"--the book is by Ann Rule.

    I sure do agree with you though, gaia--it would require an inside-out remake to reproduce such a "piece of nasty" as you so aptly put it!

    I have always found Rob Lowe to be a very attractive man. Now I'm torn between being curious about the movie and being afraid to watch. I don't want to be stuck associating such a dreamy guy with DP. I'm sure Rob will play the part well, but I kind of wish he hadn't agreed to do it!

    Maybe there would have been a better choice than Rob Lowe. The picture doesn't show him in his Drew Peterson "costume" and make-up, though! He can come across as pretty menacing.

    Awww, poor Drew Peterson, it must be difficult being an alleged murderer and not being able to choose who gets to play him in the movie. Dang, life is tough!

    Maybe he should ask his dead wives just how tough life truly can be.

    I saw a promo ad with movie clips a couple days ago. I did not know it was Rob Lowe until the clip was done, but the whole time I was viewing the clip I kept thinking the actor was too good looking and in too good physical shape to play the part of the less-than-fit jowly Drew Peterson. When I heard it was Rob Lowe I immediately thought they should have looked for someone uglier, less fit, etc.

    From the clip Lowe appears to have the mannerisms down and a good amount of the meanness, but in my mind a big part of this story is how attractive women could have been interested in Drew Peterson at all. I think this will be lost in the film with Lowe playing the part. While the makeup does *ugly* him up a lot, it still might leave a lot to the imagination to believe Rob Lowe as Drew Peterson. Talented actor he is, though, so maybe for the bulk of the movie he comes across with a believable amount of ugly.
