Rob Lowe


He garnered fame after appearing in such films as The Outsiders, Oxford Blues, About Last Night…, St. Elmo’s Fire, Wayne’s World, Tommy Boy and Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me. His parents divorced when Lowe and his younger brother, actor Chad, were very young. One of Lowe’s earliest roles came in the 1983 TV film Thursday’s Child, for which he received his first Golden Globe nomination for “Best Supporting Actor in a TV Movie/Miniseries”. Lowe and Estevez reunited in St. Elmo’s Fire, making them the two more prominent actors from the group known as the Brat Pack. But the acclaimed cast of the show–including Allison Janney, Richard Schiff, DulĂ© Hill, John Spencer, Bradley Whitford, Martin Sheen (whose President Bartlet was initially scripted as a small role) and Stockard Channing (whose First Lady was initially scripted as a guest role)–meant that Sam Seaborn could no longer be considered the lead character. While he reluctantly accepted his demotion, Lowe and series creator Aaron Sorkin soon found themselves at odds over the network’s meddling with the show, most notably the network demanding changes in the Sam Seaborn character. in 2004, he tried again in a series entitled Dr. Vegas, but it also was quickly canceled. 2004 marked his return to this genre; he had appeared in 1994’s The Stand, based on Stephen King’s book of the same name.
