Bold Face: On the Tube

Bold Face explores the cult of celebrity and the styles, trends and brands that stars show off in movies, at events and living their daily lives. To be considered for inclusion please contact senior editor, Deirdre Carroll.

Bold Face welcomes some very handsome and talented men into her home every week… thanks to the quality of shows currently on TV. In this week’s edition we feature three bespeckled actors that keep watching the tube interesting…

Awake debuted on NBC on March 1. The fantasy crime drama chronicles the life of Michael Britten, a police detective living in two realities, one in which his wife is alive, the other where his son is. The show stars Jason Isaacs (of Harry Potter fame!) as Britten who vacillates between the two realities trying to solve cases. In the show the character wears different colored rubber bands to differentiate between the realities but in real life Isaacs wears the Salvatore Ferragamo SF109SL sunglasses from Marchon

Bold Face loves her some Fringe! It’s actually one of the few good things to come out of the FOX network. Though BF’s heart will forever belong to Joshua Jackson (Pacey Witter for the win!), it’s actually co-star Seth Gabel as Fringe Division agent Lincoln Lee that has the most interesting specs. In one of the show’s “realities” the FBI agent wears the William ophthalmic style from the Victory Collection

Simon Baker
has played Patrick Jane on CBS's The Mentalist since 2008. Jane is a “psychic medium” and serves as a consultant to the California Bureau of Investigation (CBI) in the show trying to find the serial murder that killed his wife and daughter. Baker has been nominated for an Emmy Award, two Golden Globes and a SAG Award for his work on the show. Here the handsome Aussie wears the Tycoon frames from Oliver Peoples.
