Hollywood actors, they’re just like us. Well, sometimes anyway, Outsiders. 9-1-1: Lone Star actor Rob Lowe’s ‘on the way to work’ vibes are actually instantly relatable for a lot of folks. There is something to the difference between being at work and getting ready for work. It’s hard to make that transition, especially when it gets chilly like it is now this holiday season.

In the new Instagram post, Lowe captioned it with, “before and after: on the way to work vs. at work!” The photos included two of Lowe sleeping on the way in with his pup and then one fully dressed for work and the pup in the other. It was too cute.

Fans loved the photos. One fan wrote, “Aww 🥰 so cute. I can’t wait till the new episode of 911 LoneStar starts in January. Happy holidays Rob.”

Another fan wrote, “I love Terriers… they make my sing.. such a beautiful bond”

Why ‘9-1-1: Lone Star’ for Rob Lowe?

One might wonder why Lowe made such a big jump into an action procedural like this on FOX. In recent years, Lowe has become known for his work in comedies especially, and before that he made his bones in more serious roles as he had in The West Wing.

This is a different world entirely for the longtime Hollywood star. He told EW, “Ryan Murphy wrote Nip/Tuck for me and my agents never gave it to me. How about them apples? [Laughs] I had lunch with him and told him how much I loved Nip/Tuck and he was horrified as well [that it didn’t work out]. It’s one of the great Hollywood stories! For 15 years, we’ve been trying to find something [to do] together, but I’ve always been unavailable for the most part. I’m a big fan of what he, Brad [Falchuk], and Tim [Minear] did with the genre.”

So Lowe wanted to work with Murphy, who he almost worked within Nip/Tuck. Like ships crossing in the night, though, it just did not pan out that way. Finally, the two were able to make it work for this FOX show.

Rob Lowe concluded, “I love action; I love a good procedural, but that kind of special sauce they throw on it makes it not only really interesting to watch but really, really interesting as an actor. In any given episode, I’m playing comedy, I’m playing a leading man, I’m playing action, and I’m playing really raw emotion. You just don’t get many opportunities as an actor to go to the kind of places that you can in Ryan, Tim, and Brad’s shows.”

It intrigued him to play a different kind of character. Clearly, Rob Lowe is all in on the FOX drama.
