Californication Welcomes Rob Lowe


According to a Showtime press release dropped in Movieline's inbox earlier today, Rob Lowe will visit Californication next season for at least one episode. The square-jawed star, whom NBC is hoping will increase Parks & Recreation's female viewership, will play "self-possessed, award-winning movie star 'Eddie Nero,' a possible contender to play Hank in the film version of his hit novel." Apparently, David Duchovny's hormone-addled cable series is the place where middle-aged actors go to raise uneasy parallels to their own sex scandals.
