Rob Lowe to Leave Brothers & Sisters
After three years on the show, Brothers & Sisters, Rob Lowe is leaving.
Lowe joined “Brothers & Sisters” shortly after the start of the series in the fall of 2006 as a recurring and was quickly promoted to regular, playing Sen. Robert McCallister.
Ug, I have watched that TERRIBLE show, and I have to say that Rob Lowe and Gilles Marini were the only reasons to watch. And Gilles is not a permanent character!
Now, Rob Lowe isn’t leaving due to money, he’s leaving to do better things. (I swear that show is awful, so taking over for Billy Mayes would be better).
The exit is not as dramatic as Lowe’s 2002 departure from NBC’s “The West Wing” after four seasons over a salary dispute.
And Lowe may continue on ABC.
“We would like to keep Rob at ABC,” the network’s entertainment president Steve McPherson said in a statement. “We feel he should be anchoring his own franchise. We are in talks now.”
Ok I take that back, any job is worth having right now… so Lowe walking away from a paying sure thing gig is a BAD idea. Even if it does suck.
