"It's a real stretch, first of all," Rob said. "I play a famous television actor who's been on a show forever called 'The Grinder,' and now it's over… and now he thinks because you play a lawyer on TV, you can be one in real life… It’s funny; it's a good group of people."
The role won’t be unfamiliar territory for him, since Rob has played a lawyer numerous times in his career. He added, "My TV family… William Devane, plays my dad and he's a 70-year-old lawyer on the show. My [real-life] dad is a 70-year-old lawyer [and] looks a little bit like Bill Devane... it's all very confusing."
Lowe is one of the busiest actors in Hollywood, but he did say he would make time to be a politician. He joked, "I’m running for Congress — did you know that?… Independent. Green Party. 'Cause it looks good on me."
During the set visit, Rob also revealed some interesting facts about himself in "Extra's" rapid-fire quiz, including what song he likes to dance to, who he would like to work with, and who he would like to meet.
