Rob Lowe, a 1980s “Brat Packer” turned television favorite, will receive the 2,567th star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame today, honoring a career that has brought him four Golden Globe nominations.

Gwyneth Paltrow, Fred Savage and Miramax Chairman Tom Barrack will join Lowe in speaking at the 11:30 a.m. ceremony in front of Musso & Frank Grill on Hollywood Boulevard.

Lowe co-starred with Paltrow in the 2003 film comedy, “View from the Top.” Savage stars with Lowe on the first-season Fox comedy “The Grinder.” Lowe is an investor in the entertainment fund of the investment firm Colony Capital, a co-owner of Miramax.

Born March 17, 1964, in Charlottesville, Virginia Lowe was raised in Dayton, Ohio, where he began his acting career in local television and theater when he was 8 years old. His family then moved to Malibu, with Lowe starting his national acting career in 1979 as a cast member of the short-lived ABC comedy, “A New Kind of Family.”

Lowe received the first of his Golden Globe nominations in 1984 for his portrayal of a high school baseball player with a life-threatening heart disease in the CBS made-for-television movie, “Thursday’s Child.”

He made his feature film debut in the 1983 drama about tough, working- class teenagers in Tulsa, Oklahoma, in 1965, “The Outsiders.” He went on to appear in the “Brat Pack” films “Class,” “Oxford Blues,” “St. Elmo’s Fire” and “About Last Night.”

Lowe’s other film credits include “Square Dance,” which brought him a Golden Globe nomination, “Bad Influence,” “Wayne’s World,” “Tommy Boy,” and “Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me.”

Lowe received Golden Globe nominations in 2000 and 2001 for his portrayal of Deputy White House Communications Director San Seaborn on the critically acclaimed NBC drama “The West Wing.” Lowe was initially intended to be the series’ star, but left the series after four seasons because his role diminished.

Lowe’s next two series were both short-lived, NBC’s “The Lyon’s Den” and CBS’ “Dr. Vegas.” He would later be a cast member of the ABC drama “Brothers & Sisters” and the NBC comedy “Parks & Recreation.”

Lowe received his most recent Golden Globe nomination in 2014 for his portrayal of plastic surgeon Jack Startz in the Liberace biography, “Behind the Candelabra,” part of the string of miniseries and made-for-television movies Lowe has appeared in along with “The Drew Peterson Story,” “Salem’s Lot,” “The Stand,” “Killing Kennedy” and “Imperfect Justice: Prosecuting Casey Anthony.”
