On last night’s Late Show, Rob Lowe was on promoting Killing Kennedy, a television movie in which he’ll play JFK. On the program, Letterman admitted that he’s a huge fan of Parks and Recreation and wishes he was from Pawnee. Rob Lowe also talked about his departure from the series. He and Rashida Jones will be filming their final episode in two weeks, actually. Lowe, who had originally signed in for a six-episode arc with Adam Scott, has been on the series now for 88 episodes and four years.

Really? Where does the time go?

Anyway, Dave asked him why he’d leave such a great gig, and Lowe finally confessed as to the real reason he’s leaving: “Amy Poehler is a prick.”

I think in our heart of hearts, we all suspected that about Poehler.

Despite the hard feelings, Lowe admits that he’s open to coming back to Parks at some point for a visit.

Later on in the interview, Lowe also tells a cute story about how Martin Sheen used to patrol his neighborhood on Halloween with a baseball bat dressed as his Apocalypse Now character to ward off kids who egged the houses. Also, asked about his friendship with Charlie Sheen, Rob Lowe admits, “I haven’t seen him in a while. Uh, we live different lives.”

Woody Allen has "so moved on" from his daughter's accusations and says he never even thinks about it. He equates her words about him to a bad review he won't read and comments on how wacky it is that Mia Farrow is his mother-in-law. He is the worst. (Celebitchy)

Not The Worst but still very gross: Leonardo DiCaprio and his Pussy Posse Wolf Pack were on the douche prowl in NYC. (Lainey)

Here are 5 under-the-radar shows. I had never even heard of the first two. (Uproxx)
