Rob Lowe is a spectacularly underrated actor. Movie star looks aside, the Brat Pack alumni is able to turn his hand to a variety of roles, and has shown that comedy is arguably where his greatest talent lies. Some of the best casinos online would have no doubt been visited by Lowe and his friends during his 80s heyday, but now the Park and Recreation star is clean living and has made quite the career for himself. Currently starring as the lead in popular drama 9-1-1: Lone Star, Lowe has been involved in some fantastic movies and tv shows over the years. Here are a handful of his greatest roles.
St Elmo’s Fire
The Brat Pack classic St Elmo’s Fire saw Lowe play saxophonist frat boy Billy Hicks. A real ladies man, Billy was running from himself and did not want to commit to his wife and child. Although the character was troubled, he had a good heart and ultimately got his life back on track. Lowe was arguably the standout performer for his saxophone scenes if nothing else!
The West Wing
Although Lowe had a sabbatical half way through his West Wing tenure, he was still an integral part of this fantastic show. Set in the Oval Office, The West Wing centres around Josiah Bartlett, the President of the United States of America. The West Wing features a varied cast from around the world, some of whom may partake in south african casino games. What really sets the show apart is the supporting staff around Bartlett of which, Lowe’s Sam Seaborn is one. The Deputy White House Communications Director was initial going to be the focal part of the show, and the pilot was indeed shot that way. Things changed over time however, and Lowe’s role while still significant, was reduced somewhat over the course of the first four seasons. Lowe departed at the conclusion of season four, but did return to the White House in the seventh and final season.
While Oxford Blues wouldn’t win any Oscar nominations, it is a personal favourite of mine. Rob Lowe plays a stereotypical American upstart who cheats his way into Oxford University. As Nick Di Angelo, Lowe causes a number of conflicts with thanks to his never say die attitude, but is ultimately excepted by the majority of his peers at the world renowned educational facility. Ally Sheedy stars opposite Lowe and there are also some top drawer performances from Julian Sands and Amanda Pays.
The comedy that arguably resurrected Rob Lowe’s career after a difficult time personally, Wayne’s World is a cult classic. Rob Lowe plays the villain of the piece, Chicago based television producer Benjamin Kane. Kane pretends to be supportive of Wayne and his potential TV career, but is ultimately trying to steal Wayne’s girlfriend Cassandra. This is also the movie which showcased Lowe’s excellent comedic skills, and launched him back into the big time.
