AceShowbiz - It seems like %cRob Lowe% is taking a break from chasing real-life aliens to become a fictional one. The "Parks and Recreation" alum has taken to his Instagram account to share this photo, and fans are losing it since it may indicate that he will make an appearance on FOX's upcoming sci-fi comedy "The Orville".
Rob, who is currently starring on A&E's reality show "The Lowe Files" along with his two sons, uploads a picture of him sporting a blue alien-like makeup. He stares right at the camera while holding a cigarette in one of his hands. "I believe it is important to have a few surprises coming in the pipeline. Here's one. #WTF ??" so he captions the photo.
Fans quickly spot the strong resemblance it has to the one featured on the %cSeth MacFarlane%-starring "Star Trek"-inspired comedy. Fans further speculate that the alien Rob seemingly will play is the one who has a big role in the central relationship between Seth's Ed Mercer and %cAdrianne Palicki%'s Kelly Grayson. Should the rumor be true, it marks Rob and Seth's reunion after "Family Guy", on which Rob lends his voice to Stanford Cordray as well as appears as himself in a live action scene with %cAdam West% in "Not All Dogs Go to Heaven".
Seth previously gushed about "The Orville", saying that the show would bring out "a lot of fun stuff." He explained, "There's a lot of really cool species, there's a lot of really awesome looking ships. I'm trying to do the show that I would want to watch, and I like a lot of artistry in sci-fi. Our production design, our makeup artists...there's a team that has done work that, to me-and I've watched a lot of sci-fi-is unprecedented in television. You haven't seen anything this extensive on TV in a sci-fi show of this kind."
He went on saying, "I mean, they're creating worlds every week. And really, at the core of it, it is about these people. You never want to get into the quandary where you have amazing-looking visuals and then there's nothing at the core. It is about the people."
"The Orville" season 1 is set to kick off on Sunday, September 10 at 8 P.M. on FOX.
