‘Fringe’ Character Pops up on Fox

Apr 16, 2009  •  Post A Comment

The Observer, a bald, enigmatic character from Fox’s “Fringe,” has been appearing in the network’s other shows, from “American Idol” to a NASCAR race, Daily Variety reports. Fox declined to comment on the campaign, although staff members are calling it the “Where’s Baldo?” project, the trade paper adds. Michael Cerveris, the actor who plays the Observer, is expected to continue appearing at different televised events in the next few weeks, Variety says.

  1. I saw the Observer during last weeks NASCAR race and laughed out loud. I thought it was a really clever promotion. The only thing is you have to be a ‘Fringe’ fan to know who he is.

  2. I just wrote about Cerveris having the best job at Fox, he gets to go to everything.
    There was a guy at the Popeye’s in Huntington Beach yesterday that looked so much like the Observer that I made him take of the shades to make sure it wasn’t.
    Dark suit, white shirt, tie, bald …
    I certainly hope we get to see him act more, he’s a Tony winner after all.
