Rob Lowe goes dirtbag for ‘Californication’ — and it’s all good
I’ll pony up with a few thoughts on “American Idol” in a minute, but first I had to take a minute to welcome Rob Lowe to the legion of lecherous men on the coming season of “Californication.” I’ve fallen off since the first season, even though I loved it, but this just might bring me back.
My first reaction to this photo when my husband (who wrote this story) showed it to me: Grrr! Which is (a) not really in character, and (b) unusual when not discussing either Kyle Chandler or one of the young men who make me feel like a lecherous old woman (hello, Justin Timberlake).
And while everyone’s pointing out the obvious Brad Pitt resemblance, my mind turns toward my dear friend Liz Kelly, Celebritologist at washingtonpost.com, who has long held great affection for dirtbags. Which I never understood before.
Liz, I stand corrected. And after watching the last couple of episodes of “Parks and Recreation,” (see below — he’s brilliant), I’d be willing to give anything he stars in a chance, because he makes me laugh. And Showtime, I embrace your cheap stunt for my attention — and I’m setting my DVR.
Leslie Nope! And he’s trying to run to the moon…
