    Who Plays JFK Better? Lowe or Kinnear?

    Less than three years after "The Kennedys" premiered starring Greg Kinnear, another Kennedy series is set to run this coming November, in time for the 50th anniversary of JFK's assisination. Based on a book by Fox's Bill O'Reilly, this newest series features Rob Lowe in the role of JFK. But interestingly, the drama appears to have  taken a page from "The Kennedys" playbook by releasing a promo photograph of Lowe assuming the iconic poise of the former president's official portrait. It is the very same imagery as that used in the early ad campaign for "The Kennedys" in 2011.

    This enivatably begs the question: who plays JFK better? Rob Lowe, or Greg Kinnear? Check out side by side images of the portrait and the Hollywood depictions below:
