(Newser) – Just when you thought Rob Lowe’s star was back on the rise, he signs up for … a Lifetime movie? Yes, the Parks and Recreation star will play accused wife-killer Drew Peterson in TV movie The Drew Peterson Story, the Chicago Tribune reports. That’s right, we said Drew Peterson … what, you don’t see the resemblance? The Big Bang Theory’s Kaley Cuoco will play fourth wife Stacy. You can compare their mugs in the gallery.
