Last night, when I was laying in bed and mentally writing this post instead of sleeping, I went on a long mental sidebar about how young John Owen Lowe here is Nepo Baby Junior, given that Rob Lowe himself is a….and then I realized that I really needed to get some sleep, because Rob Lowe is NOT a Nepo Baby and I was thinking about Charlie Sheen. (Rob Lowe’s Dad is a divorce attorney.) MY BAD. Anyway, Lowe the Elder and Lowe the Younger now are in a Netflix series together. Per People:
The duo’s new show Unstable is all about a father-son relationship and focuses on Ellis Dragon, played by Rob, who is a “universally admired, eccentric, narcissist-adjacent biotech entrepreneur working to make the world a better place. He’s also in emotional free-fall,” according to Netflix.
His son Jackson Dragon, portrayed by John Owen, is the opposite of his dad, and the show, per Netflix, explores whether “Jackson [can] save Ellis and his company and salvage their estranged relationship while also doing what may actually be impossible: escaping the shadow of his larger-than-life father.”
The rest of that piece is quite nice, discussing how Lowe the Younger eventually got sober with the help of his also-sober father and mother. They also look very handsome in their suits, but you can tell that Rob has had MANY years of red carpets under his belt, given how adeptly he’s posing here. He could be a watch ad — and I want to know more about Lowe the Younger’s rad ring. TEACH HIM YOUR ACCESSORY-MODELING WAYS, ROBERT.
