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 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 have eyebrows. The Fringe (2008) Make-up Artists only make it appear that he does not.
