[Orlando, FL] The producers of a new film about Casey Anthony and the “Trial of the Century” have announced who will play the central characters.
You know, Lifetime … the channel that “celebrates, entertains and supports women.”
And several high-profile stars have signed up for this one. It was widely reported that Rob Lowe (Parks and Recreation) will be playing the lead role of Ashton.
The Orlando Sentinel broke the story Tuesday that the production has cast most of the other main characters.
Virtually unknown 19-year-old Canadian TV actress Holly Deveaux will play Anthony. Deveaux told ET Canada her feelings on playing a media sensation.
“It’s nerve-wracking to combat such a controversial issue as well, the outpouring of negativity for Casey Anthony is unlike anything we’ve seen in the media in years,” she said.
And how will she approach the role?

“I’m not going to make her into anything she is not,” she told ET Canada as reported by People Magazine. “The fact of it, beyond any verdicts in court, is that she was someone struggling through what was undoubtedly the most difficult trial of a lifetime.”
The movie, tentatively titled Prosecuting Casey Anthony, will also star Oscar Nunez (The Office, Bob’s Burgers) will play defense attorney Jose Baez. Elizabeth Mitchell (Lost, V, ER) will tackle the role of co-prosecutor Linda Drane Burdick.
