Should Rob Lowe be allowed to look this bad?
Rob Lowe is Brad Pitting it out with a grizzly beard and hobo hat for his three-episode stint as “Eddie Nero” on Showtime’s Californication. Mandi Bierly and I are a bit hypnotized but mostly horrified. “I want him looking his best on a show about sex,” she says, whereas I am digging the scruff but wish it didn’t extend more than an inch below the natural slope of his chinny chin chin. We both agree that if Rob Lowe looked like this in his real life as Rob Lowe, instead of in his fictional life as a TV character, our minds would explode. “The scruffiest he should look is in About Last Night,” Mandi says, “wearing sweat pants playing baseball in the park.” Wow, she’s so cool.
