Simon Baker, most known for playing Patrick Jane on CBS’ “The Mentalist,” turns 43 years old today (July 30)!
Simon Baker got his first leading TV role in 2001, when he was cast as Nick Fallin on CBS’ “The Guardian.” The show lasted three years, with Baker at the helm.
He then landed his biggest role to date in 2008, when he landed the lead role of Patrick Jane on CBS’ hit crime drama, “The Mentalist.”
Patrick is a consultant to the CBI (California Bureau of Investigation), where he helps Teresa Lisbon (Robin Tunney) and her team to solve crimes. He formerly worked as a psychic until notorious serial killer Red Jane killed his wife and daughter. There are many theories regarding Red John’s identity, with one stating that Patrick Jane is actually the serial killer himself.
“The Mentalist” will enter its fifth season this fall.
