Rob Lowe is bitching out.

Rob Lowe to exit Brothers & Sisters

I see another heart attack in Senator McCallister’s future.

Rob Lowe is departing Brothers & Sisters later this season, the actor’s spokesperson confirms.

According to Deadline Hollywood, which first broke the news, Lowe felt he was being underutilized on the ABC drama and asked to be released from his contract. The network granted his request and he’ll leave at the end of the season.

Deadline is also reporting that ABC wants to remain in business with Lowe and is talking to him about headlining his own series.

There’s no word how B&S plans to write out Lowe’s dreadfully boring character, but a Robert-Kitty divorce seems the likeliest scenario given the couple’s recent marital woes. Either that or his ticker finally gives out.


What a little bitch.

Whatever. As long as Kevin and Scotty stay happy, I'll be happy.

wtf he's in a major storyline right now with Kitty's cancer. He's lucky he got another hit show. :\
peela 22nd-Jan-2010 03:56 am (UTC)
but he is still getting regular lines unlike the older brother Tommy. wtf did he go?
just_under 22nd-Jan-2010 03:46 am (UTC)
Didn't he leave West Wing for THE SAME EXACT REASON?
ahkna 22nd-Jan-2010 03:46 am (UTC)
YES. *is bitter*

lol hes cray cray

For someone with his past he needs to shut the fuck up and be happy he's employed.
gambix 22nd-Jan-2010 04:24 am (UTC)
yes. dbag.
egrossnickle 22nd-Jan-2010 05:18 am (UTC)
I just came in to say the same thing.

I mean, I love the man. He's gorgeous, he obviously has discovered the fountain of youth, and despite his ego, he does the ensemble drama pretty well.

But for fuck's sake, just suck it up, Rob Lowe! You can't carry a movie or TV show by yourself... And there will never be another role for you like Samuel Norman Seaborn, that ship has sailed. But this is the next best thing, so why do you have to be such a diva?
sopardonme 22nd-Jan-2010 06:37 am (UTC)
seriously. i loved sam seaborn, it sucked when he left. how can he be so awesome on tv and a douche of a person
imemine69 22nd-Jan-2010 09:11 am (UTC)
YES. So annoying.

IKR? And when he got a chance to do what his ego so desired no one watched.
cellardor 22nd-Jan-2010 12:49 pm (UTC)
Yeah, my first thought too. And see how well that turned out. Wasn't his headlining tv show cancelled before the end of one season? Fail.
pop_squash 22nd-Jan-2010 09:31 pm (UTC)
YES, and Joshua Malina was NO replacement. He is such an attractive man but god, is he a jackass.
pallasathena 22nd-Jan-2010 03:46 am (UTC)
Oh my god I'm here for the gif.

oddrid 22nd-Jan-2010 03:50 am (UTC)

educate_sedate 22nd-Jan-2010 03:59 am (UTC)
ditto, that's one of my favorite episodes XD
phnix_daft_mode 22nd-Jan-2010 04:15 am (UTC)
That's the only reason I came here too, bb. Fuck, that episode was hilarious.

Lol me too. I can't stop laughing at it....
ahkna 22nd-Jan-2010 03:46 am (UTC)
What? Rob Lowe to leave an ensemble show because he's not getting enough air time? SHOCKING!

Up next for Rob: several "leading" roles on shows that fail after three episodes.
spentayearinla 22nd-Jan-2010 03:48 am (UTC)
Just like The Lyon's Den show he did post-West Wing!
ahkna 22nd-Jan-2010 03:50 am (UTC)
And, I believe something about being a doctor to rich people in Vegas.

nightcamedown 22nd-Jan-2010 04:11 am (UTC)
Hee, true. And yet - I will keep watching all his shitty shows because he is so pretty. I am ashamed.
teddyism 22nd-Jan-2010 03:46 am (UTC)
LOL this bitch is just a quitter. Maybe he's underutilized because he's such a shitty actor.
love_alice 22nd-Jan-2010 03:46 am (UTC)
Lowe felt he was being underutilized on the ABC drama and asked to be released from his contract

didn't he use this EXACT same reason for leaving the west wing?
spentayearinla 22nd-Jan-2010 03:47 am (UTC)
They'll probably kill Kitty off (I've had this feeling since this cancert stuff started) and then he just splits.

theactualworst 22nd-Jan-2010 03:48 am (UTC)

I will be so pissed if this show becomes nothing but an hour of depression.
spentayearinla 22nd-Jan-2010 03:49 am (UTC)
LOL, it'll just turn into the Justin/Rebecca happy hour.
principino 22nd-Jan-2010 03:53 am (UTC)
Oh I hope so. Hate that bitch. Let Sally Field raise her cute little boy.
hopeandmemory 22nd-Jan-2010 06:33 am (UTC)
i don't think they'll do that. she's one of the headlining characters, right after sally field. they won't dump her. maybe he'll just get mad about the running for office thing? i know he seemed cool with it this week, but maybe he'll get all resentful. or they could just legitimately kill him off. man, that would just suck ass for kitty...

god damn it, rob lowe! this show had a good thing going before you went and got all pissy!
powerofnature 24th-Jan-2010 11:39 am (UTC)
Nuh, they won't kill her off, as long as Calista wants to be a part of the show. Brothers & Sisters and network television don't have the guts to kill off a leading character unless they are forced to.
mistress_f 22nd-Jan-2010 03:47 am (UTC)
shouldn't he be thankful for being in a successful show?

whatever.. my mum will be devasteded by the news
ptizzy 22nd-Jan-2010 03:47 am (UTC)
LOL @ that gif!

What a little crybaby bitch.
whir 22nd-Jan-2010 03:47 am (UTC)
i always confuse him with Uncle Jessie
devon_carrots 22nd-Jan-2010 03:47 am (UTC)
I will miss the pretty, but if this means more screen time for Kevin and Scotty I AM ALL FOR IT
hopeandmemory 22nd-Jan-2010 06:33 am (UTC)
THIS. i love those boys. they're so fucking cute. especially scotty, i want him to be my bff.
imemine69 22nd-Jan-2010 09:15 am (UTC)
I literally go on youtube and type in 'Kevin and Scotty', and someone has posted their parts from every episode online, so I just watch those. I have no idea what's going on with the other characters, but I do know that Kevin and Scotty are (hopefully) about to have a baby!
sisterruth 22nd-Jan-2010 04:20 am (UTC)
Or older Zefron. All pretty boys.
colossusx 22nd-Jan-2010 03:47 am (UTC)
i hate this show. i feel bad for sally field, she is so amazing and talented and she's forced to act with this douche and calista flockhart.
ilouboutin 22nd-Jan-2010 03:48 am (UTC)
ah crap. i'm still on season 2.
rlmoonyk 22nd-Jan-2010 03:48 am (UTC)
this season has gotten so bad
