From Wikipedia:
Robert Hepler "Rob" Lowe (born March 17, 1964) is an American film and television actor. 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". On television, he played Sam Seaborn on 'The West Wing' and Senator Robert McCallister on 'Brothers & Sisters'. He is currently appearing on 'Parks and Recreation' as Chris Traeger.

'Naked Truth'
"The Bubble Show"

Lowe was in the hospital to have blood work done, but he was stuck with a nurse who thought she had seen him in "Legends Of The Fall" (Brad Pitt), "Interview With A Vampire" (Brad Pitt), or "Pocahontas" (a cartoon!)

This is today's tie-in to the "Captain Johnny" episode of 'Franklin & Bash'.  For this season, there has been a running sub-plot about the new home for Peter and Jared right on the beach - with their neighbor being the so-far unseen Rob Lowe. 

In the "Captain Johnny" episode, the lawyers found Lowe's pristine couch drying outside and they claimed ownership based on "curbside law".  They were cheered on by their boss and landlord Stanton Infeld, who has had a long-running feud with the actor.

Apparently, Rob Lowe will be appearing in the season finale in August, so we'll probably be showcasing him again this year.  In the meantime, a valid connection between 'Franklin & Bash' and 'The Naked Truth' can be argued, even if he hasn't shown up yet on the former.

It was pure serendipiteevee that I got these pics!  After deciding I wanted to dedicate one post per day to the "Captain Johnny" episode, I wondered if there were any other TV shows in which Rob Lowe appeared as himself.  Not only did I learn about this 'Naked Truth' episode, but I discovered that the TV Guide channel was going to show it this past Tuesday!

I apologize for the quality of the pictures.  Once again they were taken off my old-fashioned TV using my Blackberry Playbook.
