Rob Lowe is returning to Lifetime – this time to portray a lawyer in an upcoming TV movie about last summer's Casey Anthony trial.

The Parks and Recreation star, 48, who previously played Drew Peterson in the Lifetime movie Drew Peterson: Untouchable has been cast as prosecutor Jeff Ashton. The movie, tentatively titled Prosecuting Casey Anthony, will be based on Ashton's book about the case, Improper Justice: Prosecuting Casey Anthony.

In a case that captivated the country, Anthony, 26, was charged with and later acquitted of murdering her 2-year-old daughter, Caylee in 2008.

"We're thrilled to have Rob returning to our network, after his amazing star turn as Drew Peterson," Lifetime executive Rob Sharenow said in a press release. "He's one of those rare stars who can do it all, comedy, drama, heroes and villains."

What do you think of his latest choice?

So, there IS a Lifetime movie in the works. I remember Lifetime DENYING "ANY" movie re: TMLS!!

Normal Holly Deveaux Will play Casey Anthony In Lifetime Movie 'Imperfect Justice'

The notorious Casey Anthony will be played by a relative unknown.

Lifetime tapped actress Holly Deveaux to play the accused monster mom in a made-for-TV movie, Us Weekly reported.

"Imperfect Justice," which also stars Rob Lowe and Elizabeth Mitchell (“Lost”) as prosecutors Jeff Ashton and Linda Drake Burdick, reprises Anthony's 2011 trial on charges she murdered her 2-year-old daughter Caylee three years earlier.

“The Office’s” Oscar Nunez has signed on to play outspoken defense attorney Jose Baez.

Anthony was found not guilty on a murder charge on July 5 — she did get convicted for four counts of making false statements to police — and has since gone into hiding over death threats.

The 19-year-old Deveaux has previously starred in several TV series in her native Canada and had a role in the 2011 TNT movie, "Silent Witness."

Normal Oscar Nunez From The Office Signed As Jose Baez

Post by NiteSpinR on Thu May 24, 2012 1:04 pm



After a stellar audition, Oscar Nunez has nabbed a huge part in the Lifetime movie Prosecuting Casey Anthony.

The actor, famous for his role on The Office, will play the defense attorney who successfully convinced a jury that the Casey Anthony is innocent of first degree murder.

The writer of the television movie was "wowed" by Nunez's "range and ability to channel" Jose Baez. If you've ever seen the attorney, then you'd probably agree Nunez looks like him too!

He's not the only major television star that has signed on for the movie either. Rob Lowe is reportedly playing Florida prosecutor Jeff Ashton.

Let's hope these great actors help boost the quality of the Lifetime movie that we're sure will be super duper melodramatic.

Lifetime recasts lead in its Casey Anthony TV movie
Published June 07, 2012

Casey Anthony's getting a makeover.

Actress Holly DeVeaux dropped out of the Lifetime movie "Imperfect Justice" only a week into filming, People reports.

Newcomer Virginia Welch, whose website describes her as an "actress, model, martial artist, dancer," has taken over the role.

According to People, DeVeaux's decision to leave the project was mutual.

Welch will join cast members Rob Lowe, who plays prosecutor Jeff Ashton and "The Office" star Oscar Nunez, who plays Anthony's defense attorney Jose Baez. Kevin Dunn and Marina Stephenson play Anthony's parents.
The film will chronicle Anthony's trial and eventual acquittal for the murder of her two-year-old daughter

Perhaps the actress was advised not to typecast herself as a villain. It didn't do anything for Linda Blair's career, (The Exorcist.)
