MIAMI BEACH, Fla. – Rob Lowe isn’t just another celebrity who scored a Super Bowl ticket. He’s a dedicated follower of the Indianapolis Colts who has the mileage to prove it.
The actor watched the Colts win their playoff games for their Super Bowl berth, and now he and his family are going to celebrate by going to the championship.
Said Lowe: “My son Johnny is an ever bigger Colts fan than I am. So we couldn’t fly all the way to Indiana, twice in a row, two weeks in a row, and not come here.”
Lowe is on the ABC drama ‘Brothers & Sisters,’ but announced last month he was leaving the series. He said his departure is bittersweet.
“It’s one of the greatest casts I’ve ever worked with. Everybody loves everybody; I’m gonna miss that a ton. But we’re going out on a great note,” he said.
As far as speculation that he might soon get his own series, he said: “I’m keeping my options open. It’s the first time in a long time not having something that I need to go and do, so I don’t know. It’s a big adventure, we’ll see.”
