Rob Lowe Can’t Play Average Roles

Rob Lowe  says that he “can’t play average roles!”

Rob Lowe ActorRob Lowe’s first book, “Stories I Only Tell My Friends” came out in 2011 to rave reviews and now the 50-year-old actor has followed it up with “Love Life.” It’s full of stories from his life dealing with marriage, fatherhood, addiction, sex and of course love. His career has never been better with roles in “Californication,” “Parks and Recreation” and his creepy turn as a plastic surgeon in “Behind the Candelabra.” Lowe, father of two sons, spoke to FOX411 about it all.

 

FOX411: Your career has been on fire the last few years, like with “Behind the Candelabra.”
Rob Lowe: When all I was getting offered was good looking guys who take their shirts off on page 27 of every script– that Steven Soderbergh would want me to play that kind of a part, I would have said, “When is that day going to come?”

FOX411: You say you were typecast because of your looks.

Lowe: I’ve been told, as I’m sure others have been countless times, that the way I look precludes me from playing a cop or a doctor or a regular guy. “A PTA father would never look like that!” Meanwhile I am a PTA father but I’ve never been precluded from playing an arrogant, rich prick. So what does that tell you?

FOX411: Boy, you really love your wife!

Lowe: I do! I got lucky. I picked well. She’s given me amazing boys. She’s a special one. We’ve been married 23 years.

Colin Kaepernick Investigation

San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick and two other NFL players are being investigated by Miami police about an incident involving a woman at a hotel earlier this month.

Colin KaepernickMiami Police Department public information officer Rene Pimentel reported Thursday  that the investigation was for sexual assault but made a clarification saying the investigation being conducted by the Special Victims Unit is for a suspicious incident.

The investigation was originally reported by TMZ.com.

“There are no charges, definitely not. There is an investigation.”

The alleged incident took place April 1 at the Viceroy hotel in downtown Miami. Ricardo Lockette, a Seattle Seahawks wide receiver, and Quinton Patton, a 49ers receiver, are listed as “persons involved” along with Kaepernick.

According to the report, the alleged victim went to Lockette’s apartment at the Viceroy where Kaepernick and Patton were watching a basketball game. The woman told police she knows Kaepernick and that they have had a “sexual relationship.”

The woman said she “mixed some drinks for all of them and gave them shots.” She was then instructed by the men to ” ‘hit’ the bong which contained marijuana.” Later she said she started to feel light headed and went to a bedroom to lie down.

“Mr. Kaepernick came behind her into the bedroom and started kissing her,” according to the report. “Mr. Kaepernick started to undress her. She got completely naked. Mr. Kaepernick told her that he was going to be right back and left the bedroom. They did not have sex.”

Patton and Lockette looked in the room where the alleged victim said: “What are you doing? Where is Colin? Get out.” The alleged victim told police she does not remember anything after that, and that she woke up in a hospital bed, not aware of how she got there.  Read more here

Youngblood, claims that the incident embarrassed his mother, Bernice Youngblood,  who is wheelchair-bound and suffers from dementia and has also said that part of his beef is racial — a white stripper lording over an elderly black woman.  Youngblood  also said his mother was forced to tip the stripper with her own money, which is supposed to be locked away at the nurses’ station.

Youngblood  has filed a lawsuit against the East Neck Nursing and Rehabilitation Center in  Long Island where his mother resides for organizing a male stripper event.  The Center in West Babylon said all 16 people on a panel of residents approved the show.
