Ellen’s Interview With Rob Lowe
Rob Lowe stopped by Ellen and gave her a Drew Peterson: Untouchable review. He also talked about his recent tweet about Peyton Manning’s rumored retirement.
Rob Lowe ‘Drew Peterson: Untouchable’ Review
Rob Lowe stars in the new Lifetime movie Drew Peterson: Untouchable. The film tells the story of Drew Peterson, who was a Chicago police officer who is standing trial for the murder of his third wife and is suspected to be responsible for the disappearance of his fourth wife.
Rob plays Peterson, and Ellen showed a brief clip of his performance.
The clip showed Peterson lecturing a young man he had just arrested. The young man was arrested for stealing a purse to try to buy drugs for his addict girlfriend. Peterson tells the young man that his wife is pregnant and is far worse than any addict.
“You think your girl is a nightmare when she’s ‘jonesing’ for tweaks?” Peterson said. “Wait until she becomes a big fat sweaty monster.”
The line was very dark and foreshadowed the heinous crimes he was soon to commit.
Ellen commended Rob for his brilliant performance.
“You disappear in that role,” she says.
Rob said that he couldn’t have done it without the help of great hair and makeup artists who helped him look like Peterson, who was significantly older looking than Rob and slightly obese. He said that it took two and a half hours of preparation each day that included attaching a fake nose, prosthetic under eye bags, and a dental implant.
Ellen: Rob Lowe To Replace Regis?
Ellen asked Rob about the rumors that he’ll be replacing Regis Philbin on the popular talk show Live with Regis & Kelly.
Rob said that he feels like rumors like that are started about him every year but that they’re usually not true.
He said he had a great time temporarily cohosting the show with Kelly, but wouldn’t be in the position permanently.
“I have the greatest job on television on Parks and Recreation,” he said.
Rob Lowe Peyton Manning Tweet
Rob recently tweeted that his sources told him that Peyton Manning would soon be retiring. Ellen asked him where he got that information.
Rob teased Ellen saying, “I could tell you but I would have to kill you.”
Despite his secrecy, Rob did comment by saying that he hopes the rumor isn’t true, because he is a “huge Peyton Manning fan and a huge Colts fan.”
