LOS ANGELES, California (CNN) -- Actor Rob Lowe, who played a political operative on "The West Wing" television show, will become one in real life for fellow actor Arnold Schwarzenegger, who is running for governor of California, a spokesman for Schwarzenegger's campaign said Friday.
We are "gratified to have his support," said Robert Stutzman, who told CNN that Lowe will help recruit others in the Hollywood community. Lowe is a Democrat while Schwarzenegger is running as a Republican.
At this time, Stutzman said, Lowe does not have any official title with the campaign and his future role seems to be still evolving. Lowe "plans on being active," Stutzman said.
Schwarzenegger has been gathering big-name advisers in much the way a Hollywood producer would assemble an all-star cast for a blockbuster movie.
In the past few days, Schwarzenegger has announced that Warren Buffett, billionaire investor, and George Shultz, former U.S. Secretary of Treasury and State, will advise him on economic matters. He promises more big names in the days and weeks ahead.
