Rob Lowe wants to be taken seriously as an actor, and he thinks he’s finally found his award-worthy role: Caitlyn Jenner. An insider tells that Rob is eager to take on the part of the transgender Olympian in a film version of Cait’s memoir, The Secrets of My Life. And according to the source, Rob is Cait’s first choice!
“Rob’s been hunting for an awards-caliber movie part. This would be a game-changer for him,” the source told OK!
According to the insider, Cait even sent Rob an advance copy of the book to see what he thought!
“They’ve met up a few times to discuss it,” the source claimed. “She thinks he’s got what it takes to play both her and her former self, Bruce — and now Rob’s throwing his weight behind the project as well.”
Although Rob may seem like an unlikely candidate, he previously showed range in the HBO film Behind the Candelabra, in which he played the plastic surgery-obsessed Dr. Jack Startz. The actor totally transformed his face for the role.
