  • -My first guest is a Golden Globe-winning actor

  • starring in the hit series "9-1-1 Lon Star."

  • Season 2 premieres January 18th at 9:00 p.m. on Fox.

  • Here is Rob Lowe.

  • Yeah. -Thank you.

  • -Speaking of foxes, look at you man.

  • You're a fox. -Oh.

  • -Thanks for coming back to "the Tonight Show,"

  • and coming on.

  • I love seeing you, buddy.

  • I know you're -- Are you f--

  • No, you're quarantined, now, I guess, right?

  • -Yeah. Yeah, yeah.

  • We filmed.

  • We managed to get, I think, six episodes in

  • before the Christmas break.

  • Quarantine has been...

  • You know, I mean, everybody's going through it.

  • My grown sons are back in the house.

  • I'm living in the plot of a failed sitcom.

  • -[ Laughs ]

  • -"Hijinks ensue when the grown sons return."

  • -[ Laughs ]

  • "Just when you thought these empty-nesters..."

  • -"Just when Mom and Dad were comfortable

  • walking around in a towel..."

  • -[ Laughs ]

  • I met your sons the last time you were on.

  • We played a game with them, which was fun.

  • How are they -- Are they doing okay?

  • -They're -- They're really good.

  • My oldest is working at a startup -- a tech startup.

  • And the youngest is writing on "9-1-1 Lone Star."

  • And it's great to work --

  • One day, you may work with your kids,

  • and I've got to say, it's awesome.

  • It's awesome. -Wow.

  • What is it like? What's it like?

  • -Uh, well, he wrote, last year, our biggest episode.

  • And this year, he's writing the crossover --

  • co-writing the crossover episode.

  • What's kind of amazing is, after a take,

  • he'll come up with the director, and get into,

  • "Okay, so, Rob, I think, um, in this take, you should do" --

  • like, that's the thing is, like, my kids don't --

  • stopped calling me "Dad," like, about two years ago.

  • And I don't know -- And I don't know what that's about,

  • but I've notice it's a cultural thing.

  • 'Cause all their friends, at that age,

  • start calling their parents by their first name.

  • So, get ready. I know you've got a little --

  • You've got a while. Your kids are still young.

  • But you're gonna wake up one day,

  • and they're gonna be like, "Um...

  • Jimmy, can I borrow the car?"

  • It's weird.

  • -They said my name once, and it just felt weird.

  • I didn't even -- I didn't make a big deal of it,

  • but they said, like, "Jimmy Fallon," or something.

  • They said something, and I go, like --

  • It just sounded --

  • "I don't want to even start this,

  • but that's weird to even hear my name."

  • -And they do it with their mom.

  • Their mom is no longer "Sheryl."

  • They call her by the name of her company.

  • -What? -They literally go,

  • "Um, Dad -- Rob, Sheryl Lowe Designs say

  • she's running 10 minutes late."

  • -Sheryl -- What is it?

  • -Sheryl Lowe Designs.

  • That's her jewelry company.

  • -That's right. That's right.

  • -And she's so busy all the time.

  • And I think it's their way of, like, sort of taking the piss

  • out of her.

  • "Sheryl Lowe Designs."

  • -"Sheryl Lowe Designs isn't gonna like this...

  • this movie," or whatever.

  • -That's so funny.

  • Hey, by the way, congrats on your podcast.

  • I've been meaning to say "congrats" on this.

  • "Literally!"

  • -"Literally! With Rob Lowe."

  • I put my -- I put my name in the title

  • so they don't ever replace me with somebody.

  • -Smart. Oh, genius.

  • That's what I did.

  • -I know. Where do you think I got the idea?

  • -[ Laughs ]

  • It was "Literally! With Jimmy Fallon" first.

  • Then, my lawyers, you know,

  • they had to make a couple phone calls.

  • Wait, so, "Literally! With Rob Lowe,"

  • is that from "Parks and Rec"?

  • -It -- The "Literally" is --

  • I was do excited to finally have a catch phrase.

  • I've done a lot of television, and, like, you know,

  • "What you talkin' about, Willis?"

  • -Oh, yeah. -What are the famous --

  • What other famous catch phrases are there?

  • -"Wah wah wah." That was Chachi's, right?

  • -Oh, and "Ey!"

  • -"Ey!" was massive.

  • -And then, John Stamos had one, didn't he?

  • -"Don't touch the hair."

  • Or "Watch that hair."

  • And then, "You got it, dude," was the...

  • I feel like -- In the '70's,

  • I feel like Garry Marshall was great

  • at giving all his characters, like, catch phrases --

  • Fonz, Chachi.

  • The Big Ragoo.

  • Wouldn't he come in saying something?

  • -The Big Ragoo.

  • -[ Laughs ]

  • Didn't Karma -- [ laughs ]

  • Didn't Carmike and Richie, like...

  • -The Big Ragoo.

  • It's too great. -The Big Ragoo.

  • I love it, buddy.

  • [ Both laugh ]

  • -Yeah, so, "literally" was mine.

  • Just, my character said it a lot on "Parks and Rec,"

  • and people kind of liked it.

  • And so, I figured I would...

  • that would be signal to the audience

  • that you're gonna have fun, and it's gonna be a funny podcast.

  • And it is. It's really fun.

  • I'm having a blast doing it.

  • I've had Alec Baldwin, and Michael J. Fox,

  • and Magic Johnson, and Maria Shriver,

  • and Gwyneth Paltrow.

  • And it's great. It's fun.

  • -And how long do you go?

  • How long do you talk?

  • -As long as I want to, which is what is really great.

  • And it's not -- It's not an interview.

  • It's like if you were invisible, and you were sitting in

  • on a private dinner with me and that person.

  • -See, I love that.

  • -And yeah, it's really fun.

  • I think -- you've got to hear the Alex Baldwin,

  • because I know you're a big Alec Baldwin fan.

  • -I really am. I love Alec.

  • No one tells a story...

  • [as Alec Baldwin] ...like Alec Baldwin.

  • -[As Alec Baldwin] You know, Jimmy...

  • [ Clears throat ] -[ Clears throat ]

  • -"Steve Carell never won -- he never won an Emmy, ever,

  • for 'The Office' because of me."

  • [ Clears throat ]

  • -[ Laughs ]

  • [ Normal voice ] He does -- Did you ever see him do --

  • you must have -- his Al Pacino?

  • He does a great -- -Oh, yeah.

  • -He does both Al Pacinos -- young Al Pacino --

  • he just... -So good.

  • -I got to check that.

  • Everyone check out that podcast -- "Literally!"

  • I want to talk to you about "9-1-1 Lone Star."

  • Dude, congrats, by the way.

  • I know you said you've done a lot of TV.

  • This is a major hit.

  • It was the number-one new drama last season.

  • Congrats on that. -Thank you.

  • -To play a firefighter, I mean,

  • it's got to feel like you're a superhero, right?

  • -Well...

  • seriously, the thing I do love about it the most

  • is giving real first responders --

  • like, making them real heroes

  • in America's consciousness again.

  • 'Cause I love all the Marvel stuff

  • as much as the next guy,

  • and caped crusaders, or what have you.

  • But these are real people, man.

  • And they are real heroes.

  • And they are -- They are there for us

  • on our worst days. -Yep.

  • -And to dramatize their lives...

  • it feels pretty cool, I have to say.

  • -That doesn't look like any gun shot I've ever seen.

  • -Get behind the dish!

  • -What the hell was that?

  • -It's a bolt. -A bolt?

  • You mean, like, from a --
