Simon Baker


Carrying on a proud tradition, Late Show intern Justin Tasolides stepped forward to snap this picture of "The Mentalist" star Simon Baker when I was away from the window.

Intentionally or not, Justin went with the always intriguing "gum in focus/celebrity out of focus" approach.  The gum looks fantastic; Mr. Baker is still recognizable.  Really quite good. 

I was at the window later when Mr. Baker departed.  The challenge of full-dark wintertime CelebriGum photography is apparent.



You don't need The Mentalist's heightened powers of observation to see that guest photographer Justin is the hero of this entry.  Thanks, Justin!

  1. He also managed to get the ever popular Orange Cone in the shot too. In the immortal words of Indiana Jones "The" "And".

  2. I think we need a Celebrigum hazing ritual for new interns. How about we send him out on the ledge to shine up the wad?

    1. No polishing. I have enough trouble with tricky lighting without worrying about glare off the gum.

    2. I know, interns should have to read 100 gum labels a night and write coverage all for college credit at Trident University.
