Rob Lowe films montage of fire scenes for 9-1-1: Lone Star in LA

Rob Lowe was snapped working on the set of 9-1-1: Lone Star on Tuesday in Los Angeles.

The 56-year-old actor portrays Owen Strand on the procedural action-drama about first responders in Austin, Texas, a New York native dealing with cancer and health problems brought about by his work responding to the September 11, 2001 attacks on the World Trade Center.

The Parks and Recreation actor, speaking with Variety earlier this month, said he was creatively invigorated by the role on the show from Ryan Murphy.

‘The Ryan Murphy World special sauce is what makes doing a semi-procedural interesting for me as an actor,’ he told the outlet earlier this month. ‘We have all of the elements of the genre, but in this iteration there are elements of the unexpected.

‘It can be authentic and honest and then become almost absurdist. We do wild tone swings. It keeps it fresh for me.’

Lowe, who is father to two sons – Matthew, 28, and John Owen, 26, with wife Sheryl Berkoff, 59 – told the outlet ‘its a good thing to spotlight real-life heroes’ with the series, which is a spin-off of the Los Angeles-based series 9-1-1.

‘They may not wear masks and capes, but their stories are every bit as compelling,’ he said. ‘Probably more so.’

Lowe said that in his career, he’s been fortunate to ‘not to be pigeonholed’ into a specific genre in his projects: ‘Im lucky enough to be on both lists – the comedy list and the drama list, which is good.’

9-1-1: Lone Star airs Mondays on Fox at 9/8c.
