Rob Lowe's Son Matthew to Start Internship on Capitol Hill

The 17-year-old work with Rep. Eric Cantor (R-Va), echoing some of his father's on-screen political roles

In what looks like the real-life embodiment of his father’s famous roles, Matthew Edward Lowe (pictured far right), son of Rob Lowe, is starting an internship with House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-Va) in Washington D.C.

Rob Lowe took on political roles himself as Deputy White House Communications Director Sam Seaborn on NBC’s “The West Wing” and Sen. Robert McCallister on ABC’s “Brothers & Sisters.”

He currently plays the hyper health-conscious government auditor Chris Traeger on NBC's "Parks and Recreation."

The actor also spent time in Washington last summer, working to produce a reality show, "Potomac Fever," for E! about young twenty-somethings living it up in the nation's capital. 

But on Capitol Hill, the opportunity seems ripe for Matthew Lowe, who is set to begin his internship after the July 4th holiday, according to numerous political outlets.

Rep. Cantor’s press contact was not available for comment.
