What is Rob Lowe's Net Worth? A look at '911: Lone Star' lead's long Hollywood career and earnings
With '911: Lone Star' set to return for its second season with its lead Rob Lowe as Owen Strand, it's worth taking a look at the actor's finances. Known far and wide for his roles on 'The West Wing', 'Parks & Recreation' and more, the actor is a familiar face in both comedic and serious roles. We take a closer look at his net worth, his biggest earnings, and his career leading up to his latest starring role.
According to CelebrityNetWorth.com, Rob Lowe has a net worth of around $100 million. He was born in Charlottesville, Virginia, on March 17, 1964, and was raised in Dayton, Ohio. He got his first acting break at the age of 19, in the made-for-TV movie 'Thursday's Child', a film that won him immediate recognition for his acting chops, receiving a Golden Globe Award nomination for Best Supporting Actor in a Series, Miniseries, or Television Film - quite an impressive feat for such an early role. However, his claim to fame was cemented for his role in the film adaptation of the classic S.E. Hinton novel, 'The Outsiders,' acting alongside Emilio Estevez and directed by Francis Ford Coppola. He would pair up with Estevez again in 1985 for 'St. Elmo's Fire', joining an elite group of Hollywood younglings known as the Brat Pack -- a pack that included Estevez, but also Andrew McCarthy, Demi Moore, Judd Nelson, and Molly Ringwald.
He won another Golden Globe nomination for Best Supporting Actor for his portrayal of a mentally disabled character in 'Square Dance' in 1987. He then entered into one of his more recognizable roles as Sam Seaborne in 'The West Wing,' a role for which he won a Primetime Emmy Award nomination and two Golden Globe Award nominations for Best Actor in a Drama Series. He left the show before its completion, going on to star in a number of commercial flops until he found success in various television films, and eventually a significant role in the sitcom 'Parks & Recreation'. He has since gone on to star in a number of film and television roles, appearing in 'Californication', 'The Orville', 'The Invention of Lying' and many more.
He is also a published author, having released his memoirs 'Stories I Only Tell My Friends' in May 2011, and 'Love Life' in 2014. He's also been a spokesperson for several brands such as KFC, DirecTV and Atkins Nutritionals.
'911: Lone Star' releases on January 18, on FOX.
