Rob Lowe Flips Out Upon Learning 'Parks & Recreation' Has Been On Hiatus (VIDEO)

Rob Lowe had been a national treasure for decades, until he found out that he hadn't been on television for the last few months and went berserk in this Funny or Die clip.

The surprising fall hiatus of "Parks and Recreation" was a shocker to newly-added cast member Lowe, who in this clip plays himself as an outrageous diva prone to temper tantrums, profanity and violence towards fellow cast members when he learns that his handsome mug has been off the airwaves. Sam Seaborn surely would be disappointed.

Watch Robert Vesuvius Lowe and the production assistants who he thinks make up the rest of the cast when "Parks and Recreation" returns this Thursday, January 20th.
