Missed Rob Lowe's Reddit chat? Don't worry, we've got you covered.
After Nick Offerman gave us not one, but two amazing Reddit sessions, his former "Parks and Recreation" co-star Rob Lowe decided to get in on the action and host his own Q&A. The results were nothing short of spectacular. From which "Parks and Rec" cast member he'd like to have a beer with to bringing back "The West Wing" to his new top secret comedy show, here's a list of the best nuggets from this week's chat:
Bringing "The West Wing" back?
When a user asked Lowe if he'd like to reprise his West Wing character Sam Seabourne in a reboot of the popular NBC drama, he was all for it. "If Aaron Sorkin was writing it, I would be there with bells on," Lowe wrote. More presidential talk took place during the chat, including the actor's favorite moment on the show. "I'll never forget showing up with the cast and Aaron Sorkin when we were first announced as being on NBC's schedule," he wrote, "and all of the jaded network executives and advertising buyers and executives saw a 90 second clip and gave us a standing ovation in Radio City Music Hall, which I don't think is a very common occurrence with that crowd."
Who's his favorite "Parks and Rec" cast member?
Most of the Reddit talk centered on Lowe's time on "Parks and Recreation," and with good reason. His iconic "stop pooping" moment was easily the five funniest seconds in television and has an entire page of GIFs dedicated to it. Fans of the show might be interested to know that scene was not scripted. "We all have contests to see if our ad libs will make it into the show," Lowe wrote, "Stop Pooping! is my crowning achievement in the ad lib department."
Apparently fun happened off screen for the "Parks and Rec" cast too. "The cast of 'Parks & Rec is just a group of unbelievably nice, humble, down to earth, hilarious friends," Lowe wrote.
"Amy Poehler is who you want to have a drink with," he admitted. "Nick Offerman is who you want to eat a steak with, Aziz Ansari is who you want to shop with, Rashida Jones is who you want to hang by the pool with, Chris Pratt is who you want to go shooting automatic weapons and Jim and Retta are who you want to hate-watch the perfect television show with."
Is he working on a new show?
The answer is yes! Lowe seemed pretty surprised when a user asked about his under-the-radar project for Comedy Central titled "Moonbeam City," but he did give a few details about the new show.
"'Moonbeam City' is a new cartoon that I am starring in for Comedy Central that probably won't be on the air until very early next year," he wrote, "it is hilarious, wildly politically incorrect, and very very very wrong. It takes place in 'Moonbeam City,' America's most swinging and dangerous city in 1985, and I am the coolest, most bitchin' top cop, who probably causes more crimes than he actually solves." Oh, and a few famous friends are joining him on the show.
"Will Forte, Kate Mara, and Elizabeth Banks [also star]," Lowe wrote. "So it's really too bad we couldn't find anybody good."
