City Manager Chris Traeger came in to... wait, I mean, Rob Lowe came in to NPR West for a talk with KPCC host Alex Cohen about his new political thriller Knife Fight. It's pretty easy to mistake the seasoned actor for his Parks and Recreation character, as Lowe's friendliness and enthusiasm are not lost on his TV counterpart.

After chatting with Cohen about his latest project and his long career in TV and film, we asked if he'd mind posing for a quick photo.

"Look at all my FRIENDS," he said pointing specific people he has worked with from the collection of "I Heart-ers" that graces the front of my desk. Sufficiently inspired, we stepped into the I Heart photo studio (by which I mean the front patio), and Lowe showed us that he LITERALLY... loves NPR.
