Rob Lowe has saved his TV career thanks to Stephen King's horror classic Salem's Lot. The cult 1979 TV series starred David Soul as a vampire hunter and James Mason as a ghoul, and now Lowe is to play the bat stalker and Donald Sutherland his foe. Rutger Hauer and Babe star James Cromwell also appear in the new $12 million TV project. Lowe's latest TV role as a Washington DC lawyer in Lyon's Den has been a flop in America.
Oh, what very strange irony indeed.
