Unlike other actors who've gone bald for their characters (such as Michael Rosenbaum's decision to shave his head to play Lex Luthor in Smallville (2001)) Michael Cerveris, who plays "The Observer," was already shaved bald before being cast. He first shaved his head completely in 1993 while playing Tommy in the Broadway musical "The Who's Tommy," because he wore a wig in that show and found it more comfortable to put the wig over a shaved head. However, Cerveris does actually have eyebrows; the Fringe (2008) makeup artists only make it appear that he does not. See more »
Beginning in season one, establishing shots show the teams headquarters to be in a skyscraper which title cards identify as the "Boston Federal Building." However the building shown is actually Hancock Tower, a privately owned office building which is one of the most recognizable landmarks in Boston. The FBI is located in One Center Plaza which is across the street from Homeland Security office located in the John F. Kennedy Federal Building located downtown at Government Center. Both buildings are in direct proximity to Boston City Hall, a city courthouse, police station, local NBC/CW television station and immigration offices. See more »
OK first things first...... you people can't just watch the first two episodes and say that this show isn't good. the first few episodes of any show are bound to be a little slower than the latter. And how can you not dig the strange things that take place in this show. I think it is an excillent, fresh, new idea and has a lot of potential. It's kind of like CSI meets the x-files with some weird science in the mix. Overall i think this series has great potential if you saw the first two episodes and gave up on the show your an idiot. Myself being a huge fan of Lost was a little skeptical about Fringe and was even a little bit disappointed with the first few episodes. Keep watching and like me you will be pleasantly surprised!
