Drew Peterson Reviews Lifetime Movie About His Life
Rob Lowe’s Drew Peterson: Untouchable aired last night on Lifetime, the channel ostensibly dedicated to the female viewer that is known for murder re-enactments and dramas about knocked-up, cyber bullied teens. Real life Drew Peterson watched an early DVD from Will County Jail and has given his review.
The preview clip of a garage door opening slowly to show Lowe/Peterson standing there declaring under his mustache “I’m untouchable bitch,” drew early praise for being comedic genius. Apparently, it held up to its promise. Peterson, accused of killing his third and fourth wife, found it "hysterical.”
And what about poor Stacy Peterson’s family? Her sister had trouble recognizing her own characters and told the Chicago Tribune "It’s so inaccurate, I had to laugh."
Lowe himself even seemed to have doubts, telling the AP of the Peterson role: "I didn’t feel like I resembled him on any level and there was no part of my sort of persona or who I am as a person that I can access to play him, so with no idea how I was going to do it, I said, ‘Yes.’"
Apparently, the Ro Lowe School of Acting is just turning tragedy into comedy.
