    Rob Lowe signed on to play Drew Peterson in a Lifetime movie.

    You may remember him from movies like "St. Elmo's Fire" and "Wayne's World" or on television starring on "The West Wing," but here's something you haven't seen: Rob Lowe as Drew Peterson.

    Lowe has signed on to play the former Bolingbrook police officer accused of murdering his third wife in a made-for-TV movie airing on the Lifetime Movie Network, according to the Sun-Times.

    The movie is based on a 2008 nonfiction book written by Joe Hosey titled, "Fatal Vows: The Tragic Wives of Sergeant Drew Peterson".

    Actress Kaley Cuoco will play Peterson's fourth wife, Stacy, who disappeared in October 2007.

    Peterson remains a suspect in Stacy's case, but is currently jailed in connection to the drowning death of this third wife, Kathleen Savio. He denies any connection to either case.
