SIMON BAKER TO BE HONORED WITH
STAR ON THE HOLLYWOOD WALK OF FAME ON VALENTINE'S DAY!

Ceremony will be live streamed on www.walkoffame.com

Hollywood Walk of Fame official website - www.walkoffame.com

The Hollywood Chamber of Commerce has a very special Valentine’s Day gift for fans of The Mentalist star Simon Baker. He will be honored on the famous Hollywood Walk of Fame on February 14, 2013. “Hearts will be pounding for Simon Baker as he unveils his star on this very special day. His star will be located next to the very romantic Beso Restaurant!” stated Ana Martinez, Producer of the Hollywood Walk of Fame ceremonies. “Sigh! For the faint of heart, we encourage fans to watch the live star ceremony exclusively on www.walkoffame.com.”

 

Emcee Leron Gubler, President/CEO of the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce and guest speakers Actress Naomi Watts and Bruno Heller, Executive Producer of The Mentalist will help Baker unveil 2,490th Star in the Category of Television at 6352 Hollywood Boulevard.

Australian born actor, Simon Baker first arrived on American screens in 1997 in Curtis Hanson’s critically acclaimed LA Confidential. The highly praised film marked the beginning to a career of captivating performances and notable collaborations across the film and television spectrum.

Currently starring in the highly successful WB television hit The Mentalist, his portrayal of the charming and irreverent Patrick Jane has won him international stardom and earned him Golden Globe, Emmy and SAG nominations.  The highly successful Warner Bros. Television series airs Sundays at 10/9c on CBS, and  is currently in its fifth season  

His work in films such as Ang Lee’s Ride with the Devil, Michael Winterbottom’s The Killer Inside Me with Casey Affleck, George Romero’s Land of the Dead with Dennis Hopper and David Frankel’s international box office hit The Devil Wears Prada with Meryl Streep, has cemented his reputation as a versatile and charismatic character actor and leading man alike.

An earlier television venture as the title character of CBS’s The Guardian, took him away from the big screen for three years but he returned with a starring role in the sequel to the Dreamworks monster hit, The Ring, with Naomi Watts, the indie Sundance competition favorite, Book of Love and the interracial love story, Something New.

Recently he worked alongside Kevin Spacey and an all- star cast in the critically acclaimed Margin Call, which was recognized with several awards including an academy award nomination for best original screenplay.

He will next be seen in the British comedy, I Give it a Year, with Rose Byrne and Anna Faris, which is currently opening in the UK to great reviews.

Throughout his career Simon has pursued his interest in directing, beginning with an episode of The Guardian and more recently, several episodes of The Mentalist.  He recently joined with Oscar winning producer, Mark Johnson to acquire the Tim Winton novel Breath, which they plan to adapt and co-produce as a feature film.

Baker has recently become the face of Givenchy’s new men’s fragrance, Gentlemen Only and is a brand ambassador for the Swiss watch company, Longines.

His involvement with Artists for Peace and Justice, focused on rebuilding infrastructure in Haiti, led to a friendship with Mending Kids International. He is also involved with the organization, Life Rolls On and their flagship program, They Will Surf Again, which pushes the boundary of possibility for those with spinal cord injuries. He actively supports Planned Parenthood and The Coalition to Abolish Slavery and Trafficking
