West Wing gets a special benefit episode on HBO Max
August 25th, 2020 under Dulé Hill, HBO Max, Rob Lowe. [ Comments: none ]


While we are still waiting for the Friends unscripted reunion to happen on HBO Max, the streaming service announced that they are staging another reunion. The cast of West Wing will reunite to reenact the Hartsfield’s Landing episode.

The 2002 episode is described as, “Bartlet engages both Sam and Toby in intricate chess matches that mirror the wily game of brinkmanship that Bartlet is playing with the Chinese, who are conducting war games in the Taiwan Strait.”

Aaron Sorkin, who created the legendary series, will direct Rob Lowe, Dulé Hill, Allison Janney, Janel Moloney, Richard Schiff, Bradley Whitford, and Martin Sheen. They will film it over a few days as the actors perform the script at the Orpheum Theatre in Downtown Los Angeles in early October.

The press release does not say when it will start streaming, but it will be before the election. That is because the performance is benefitting Michelle Obama’s When We All Vote. The nonprofit wants to inspire increased voting participation.

I would not be surprised that if this does well, the series we might get a West Wing revival. One of them could be the President of the United States now. Who do you think would have the job?

Lowe’s didn’t want to work with Rob Lowe
August 12th, 2020 under Conan O'Brien, Rob Lowe. [ Comments: none ]


You know, the meme, “How many Lowe’s would Rob Lowe rob if Rob Lowe could rob Lowe’s?” Well, when the actor saw it blow up online, he had his people call Lowe’s and see if they wanted to collaborate with him. The actor told Conan O’Brien, on his TBS show yesterday, that the home improvement store said, “We don’t really see the connection.”

I think they have been sniffing too much of their turpentine if they don’t see that connection. I can even see the commercial now. Lowe going around Lowe’s stealing things, and the slogan could be, “Our prices are so Lowe, you will feel like you are ROBbing us.” Oh well. Their loss.

Rob Lowe reveals he won’t be playing the Tiger King after all
July 8th, 2020 under Conan O'Brien, Rob Lowe, Ryan Murphy. [ Comments: 1 ]


A few months ago, Rob Lowe shared a photo of himself dressed up as Joe Exotic. Then he revealed that he and Ryan Murphy were working on a project about the Tiger King.

That was then. Yesterday, the actor told Conan O’Brien that the movie is off. When Murphy tried the get the rights to the story, they were already taken by Nicolas Cage’s people.

Why can’t they do an Amy Fisher and let multiple retell the purrfect story?

Are you mad that Lowe and Murphy’s plan has been put in a cage?

BTWF: Rob Lowe in The Go-Go’s Turn to You

Before Rob Lowe was the ’80s heartthrob in movies, he was the leading man in The Go-Go’s Turn to You. You can see why the girl group turned to the 20-year-old to be in their 1984 music video.

The Parks & Recreation special is as delightful as the show
April 30th, 2020 under Amy Poehler, Chris Pratt, Megan Mullally and Nick Offerman, Rob Lowe. [ Comments: none ]


Tonight at 8:30pp on NBC, the cast of Parks & Recreation comes out of their five-year retirement to inform us about COVID-19. The half-hour scripted special is a creative way to teach everyone what do and what not to do during this pandemic. They make learning how to protect yourself from Coronavirus fun.

Leslie Knope (Amy Poehler)! Ron Swanson (Nick Offerman)! Tom Haverford (Aziz Ansari)! Ann Perkins (Rashida Jones)! April Ludgate (Aubrey Plaza)! Andy Dwyer (Chris Pratt! Ben Wyatt (Adam Scott)! Chris Traeger (Rob Lowe)! Donna Meagle (Retta)! and Garry Gergich (Jim O’Heir)! They all get together tonight, but due to social distancing, they are all apart. How are the married couples going to do that? You just have to see how they explain it. That and to see what everyone else in Pawnee is up to after all of these years.

The episode starts off with Leslie talking to her husband, Ben, on Facetime. When she gets off the phone with him, it is time for her to start her phone chain. Her first call is to Ron, and he is thrilled to see her. Well, as thrilled as Ron can get. When he gets off the phone with her, it is time to move on to the next person. Then the chain keeps on going until someone has to talk to Gary.

In between phone calls, they appear on TV shows because Leslie wants the townspeople to know some of the dangers of being home all the time can have on a person’s mentality.

Eventually, they all get on Zoom and we get the best moment from the enjoyable episode. The type of episode you can and should watch with your whole family. You don’t have to be a fan of the show to adore tonight’s special.

Show creator Mike Schur says it only took 45 minutes to get everyone on board to do it. What got them all to say yes so quickly? He says, “Like a lot of other people, we were looking for ways to help and felt that bringing these characters back for a night could raise some money,”

The show is raising money for Feeding America’s COVID-19 Response Fund. State Farm and Subaru of America will each make matching donations of $150,000, while NBC and Parks & Rec will match $500,000 in donations up until May 21st.
