Trivia

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 »

Love this show
13 August 2009 | by (Pasadena California) – See all my reviews

Yes the show has to grow, but they have done a terrific job on it. If anyone wants more insight into the show please go to youtube and look for the ComicCon footage. I am one of the lucky few who go to go to the Q&A for Fringe. They were an awesome group. As to the people who are saying it is a Rip off of X-Files get a life. X-Files was not even original, hello Kolchek, the Night Stalker. Even though it wasn't the FBI it was very much an early X-Files.

One person at the Con asked where the writers got their ideas and they said things like Scientific America and other scientific magazines and publications. Also, they have a neuro-scientist consultant on the show as well as consulting with JPL, CERN, MIT and other science organizations. They are really trying to be smart about the show. For the person who complained about John Nobles accent, well he has a really thick New Zealand accent and he was trying to go for that Professor type accent from when he was in college. Also, JJ Abrams has not had anything to do with Lost since season 1. He is only on the credits as creator. Anyway, go see the footage from the Comic-Con and you may get a better understanding of the actors and the show in general.
