Rob Lowe as John Marshall

Rob Lowe stars in Dog Gone as Fielding’s dad, John. John and Fielding embark on a quest to find Gonker after he goes missing on the Appalachian Trail. Lowe is a famous American actor and filmmaker.

Born on Mar. 17, 1964, in Charlottesville, Virginia, Lowe is 58 and will turn 59 this year. He is married to makeup artist Sheryl Berkoff, and they have two sons. Lowe’s brother, Chad Lowe, is also a working actor who you might recognize as Byron Montgomery on Pretty Little Liars.

Lowe has a long career, having worked in the industry since 1979 when he got his first role in the ABC sitcom A New Kind of Family. Since then, he has starred in films like The Outsiders, St. Elmo’s Fire, Wayne’s World, Square Dance, and more. But Lowe is probably best known for his television work.

He’s brought to life characters like Sam Seaborn on The West Wing and Chris Traeger on the NBC sitcom Parks & Recreation. Currently, he stars on the FOX drama 9-1-1: Lone Star as Captain Owen Strand. He has been nominated for five Golden Globe Awards and one Emmy.

Besides Lone Star, Lowe will next star in the upcoming Netflix comedy series Unstable opposite his real-life son, John Owen. Those interested in keeping up with the actor can follow him on his Instagram, @roblowe.

Johnny Berchtold as Fielding Marshall

Fielding is John’s son and Gonker’s owner. Up-and-coming actor Johnny Berchtold plays Gonker. Dog Gone marks one of his biggest roles to date. Prior to this film, Berchtold played Jay Jennings in the STARZ miniseries Gaslit, co-starring Julia Roberts, Sean Penn, and Dan Stevens.

He also appeared in an episode of the Prime Video series The Wilds and has starred in various short films throughout the years, including one he wrote himself. He has been cast in a lead role in the upcoming horror film Snow Falls, premiering on Jan. 17. Next, he’ll star opposite Kyle Gallner in the Blumhouse/Epix thriller The Passenger.

Outside of his mainstream acting credits, however, you might recognize Berchtold from his TikTok, @johnny_berchtold. I’m a fan of Berchtold’s TikTok page. He’s hilarious and quite talented. He regularly makes funny parody videos and skits of common film tropes and clichés like a typical breakup scene in a YA rom-com or scenes often found in most horror films. You can also follow Berchtold on his Twitter and Instagram.
