Rob Lowe’s Weird New Parks and Recreation Hair, Explained

Rob Lowe.

When Rob Lowe showed up with suddenly overgrown emo hair in this year's season premiere of Parks and Recreation, we assumed that it would serve as a plot point or at least a withering punch line from Aubrey Plaza. Instead, Lowe's messy Bieber do has gone uncommented upon for weeks now, though it would seem to be at odds with his character's super-tidy vibe. Luckily, EW has gotten some answers out of executive producer Mike Schur: Lowe's Lifetime movie about Drew Peterson was to blame for the disheveled look (the actor was shooting it concurrently), but "his hair will go back to last year's style around episode 5 or 6." Just in time for sweeps! [PopWatch/EW]
