WATCH: Rob Lowe Joins The Factor to Discuss His Role as JFK in 'Killing Kennedy'

This year marks the 50th anniversary of the assassination of President John F. Kennedy.

Actor Rob Lowe stars as President John F. Kennedy in the adaptation of Bill O’Reilly’s best-selling book, “Killing Kennedy.” Tonight, Lowe joined The O’Reilly Factor to discuss his role in the National Geographic Channel movie.

To mimic the president’s accent, Lowe revealed that he listened to hours of recordings and speeches.  “I gotta say, you really nailed the Boston accent,” O’Reilly said. “I lived in Boston for many years, I can’t do it.”

O’Reilly asked Lowe, “What the reaction to you dealing in a project that I wrote? I mean, these pinheads in Hollywood, they don’t like me at all.”

“I’ve already gotten a message from Tom Hanks, Matt Damon, Sean Penn, Danny Glover, Clooney – I am no longer invited to play in the reindeer games, and it’s all because of you,” Lowe joked.

On a serious note, the actor said, “Even the most partisan person can’t argue with the success of the book and how the audience has embraced it.”

Lowe said that even after watching this movie, Americans will never put the Kennedy assassination to rest. “It’s the great mystery of all time. I think the movie is the definitive word on what happened.”
