POLISHED EDGE: Celebrity Q&A
Rob Lowe of ‘Parks and Recreation’ on NBC
Q: When you look at the photos of you as Drew Peterson, you’re not automatically recognizable, and you are creepy in this. Is that what you wanted?
A: That makes me so happy! Thank you. I had a great hair and makeup department, and it was really important for me. There is so much footage of Drew. He has been on every show, and everyone knows what he looks like, and yet you don’t want it to look like an “SNL” version.
Q: Is that a wig or your hair? An Internet site says you have been dyeing your hair for years. True?
A: That’s my hair, dyed gray, which is very, very hard to do, as it turns out -- only one guy in Hollywood does it. I don’t color my hair. Getting the hair dyed took five hours.
Q: Were you balancing this role while doing other work?
A: I was still shooting “Parks and Recreation.” During the last two weeks of “Parks and Recreation,” I would alternate with those two characters being diametrically opposed and then just the look. It was really an adventure, but the kind of adventure I dream about as an actor. Very few get to play Drew Peterson on a Wednesday and Chris Traeger on a Thursday.
Q: What would Sam Seaborn of “The West Wing” be doing now?
A: When we last saw Sam, he was working for President Santos. I think Sam might be running for office. He got his ass kicked in California’s 47th (district) and went back to Washington.
