Lowe Devastated He Missed Out on "McDreamy"



Actor Rob Lowe was devastated when he turned down the role of Dr. Derek Shepherd in hit TV medical drama Grey's Anatomy, insisting he felt like shooting himself after the show became a hit. Lowe passed on the romantic lead role, which eventually went to Patrick Dempsey - and earned him the nickname Dr. McDreamy - and revived the actor's career. The About Last Night star laments, "(I) coulda been McDreamy! It's an occupational hazard. It's like Brad Pitt turns down The Matrix to go do Seven Years In Tibet. It happens to everybody. The great thing is that Patrick Dempsey is so great in that part and he's such a great actor. If I'd have done that I wouldn't be doing this great part and having this fun on (new TV series) Brothers And Sisters. It all works out."

Anyone else notice that ABC.com fucked up posting last night's episodes? It's a half day at work and all I want to do is watch Ugly Bettt and Grey's Anatomy.

They probably won't post them since they were repeats.
red_bullet 8th-Dec-2006 02:59 pm (UTC)
That would explain it since the filler for Betty is a completely different show and the one for Grey's is the threesome episode.

Is it just me or does Patrick Dempsey look like a busted up version of Rob. At least from this pic.

oh hay sodapop
elvisisdead 8th-Dec-2006 02:37 pm (UTC)
well im glad he turned down the part, because Patrick looks a lot better suited for the role.
truman 8th-Dec-2006 02:38 pm (UTC)

i like your icon!
bagelofdeath 8th-Dec-2006 02:39 pm (UTC)
I'm sad, too. Because no matter how many times they try to convince me otherwise, Patrick Dempsey is just unattractive.
destroyernova 8th-Dec-2006 02:45 pm (UTC)
I know, he's not mcdreamy at all.
_if_6_was_9 8th-Dec-2006 03:13 pm (UTC)
I totally agree with you. He's McFug, if anything.
deerlike 8th-Dec-2006 03:25 pm (UTC)
I LOVE YOU

Thank you for saying that, seriously. Dr McDreamy? Only if you're desperate, and he's the last man on earth, and all the sperm-banks have run dry, and the earth needs to be repopulated, stat.

Yes. He's not just ugly, he's disgusting - his 'intense look' is just making puppy-dog eyes which makes me want to kick him.
hushpuppyprncss 8th-Dec-2006 02:46 pm (UTC)
I'm extrememly happy that he didn't take the part because Patrick Dempsey is freaking hot! Not only that I don't see Lowe being able to portray McDreamy's emotions as well, as right on, as P-Demp (who works those scenes because of the intensity in his eyes!)
sharks_teeth 8th-Dec-2006 02:47 pm (UTC)
Oh jeez the only thing that makes Meredith and McDreamy bearable is Patrick Dempsey. I would want to stab my eyes out if Meredith was sapping around after Rob Lowe.

Icon love!

colossusx 8th-Dec-2006 03:40 pm (UTC)
I thought your icon was somebody getting eaten by a Cylon.
hushpuppyprncss 8th-Dec-2006 02:48 pm (UTC)
And new episode won't be on until after the new year...I'm not sure if it's coming back on the 4th or the 11th...I can't wait!
stah_chica 8th-Dec-2006 03:05 pm (UTC)
That picture reminds me of a mugshot
_if_6_was_9 8th-Dec-2006 03:15 pm (UTC)
I like Rob Lowe and all, but he used the word "great" three times in one sentence. Annoying.
pallidpanacea 8th-Dec-2006 03:18 pm (UTC)
Ha ha ha! Yeah, sure, Lowe. Brad Pitt's career really suffered. He's so B-list now! ;) Oh and he's also doing shitty TV shows, right?

And can anyone even picture Pitt in The Matrix?!?!?
cakefrosted 8th-Dec-2006 04:25 pm (UTC)
nooo. Keanu was perfect for the role.
ayajedi 8th-Dec-2006 04:38 pm (UTC)
No. Keanu was made for that role.

"shooting himself after the show became a hit"

i imagined that on star magazine and laughed :x
lloydsgurl 8th-Dec-2006 03:21 pm (UTC)
I wouldn't want him in the part because I wouldn't want to hate him.

Plus having Mere all over him would just make me sad.
