Simon Baker Begins Work on 'Breath' at Bronte Beach in Sydney

Simon Baker looks to be in great spirits while setting up shots on set of a new project on Friday (December 18) at Bronte Beach in Sydney, Australia.

The 46-year-old actor is likely working on his brand new adaptation of Tim Winton‘s novel, “Breath,” which he will also direct.

The movie follows two adventurous teenage surfers, whom they have yet to cast.

“For almost a year we’ve been searching for the boys,” Simon told the Sydney Morning Herald. “We’re close. I’m down to a handful of kids.”

Meanwhile, Simon will also star in the film as Sando, an older surfer who befriends the boys.

Simon Baker Used 'The Mentalist' As His Film School

Simon Baker suits up for the YWCA’s Mother Of All Black And White Balls on Saturday evening (May 30) in Sydney, Australia.

The 45-year-old Mentalist alum was joined on the carpet by his wife Rebecca Riggs.

Simon recently opened up about his desire to direct.

“I had been working towards wanting to direct when I signed on to The Mentalist. After I did The Guardian, I didn’t want to ever do TV again,” Simon told THR. “I didn’t think that I could handle that kind of grind. But when I signed on to The Mentalist, I made a very conscious decision to use it as a film school. We made 151 hours of TV and it’s sort of the speed dating of film production. You have to pull pieces together at high speed. You have to do the script development, you have to do casting, do location scouting. You are always working with different people. I directed as many of those as I could physically.”

Simon Baker Goes Shirtless in Sydney Ahead of 'The Mentalist' Series Finale

Simon Baker shows off his surfing skills while hitting the waves at Whale Beach on Tuesday (February 17) in Sydney, Australia.

The day before, the 45-year-old actor was spotted shirtless while frolicking in the water with his wife Rebecca Rigg.

Simon‘s show The Mentalist just aired its series finale, and Executive Producer Tom Szentgyorgyi revealed what’s next for Simon’s character Patrick and – SPOILER ALERT! – his new wife Teresa (Robin Tunney).

“Jane’s building a house for his family. Lisbon will work at the FBI through her pregnancy until two weeks before she delivers, take a few months’ maternity leave, then go back to kicking ass and arresting bad guys,” Tom told Deadline.” It’s what she does. Will Jane go back to working for the FBI with her? I don’t know. I suspect he doesn’t either. As for Cho, he will certainly continue to rise. Could the Chelsea Clinton administration see an FBI Director Cho? I don’t see why not.”

Simon Baker Talks About Life After 'Mentalist' Series Finale

Simon Baker and his wife Rebecca Rigg arrive at LAX Airport to catch a flight to Paris on Monday (February 2) in Los Angeles.

The 45-year-old actor was spotted a couple times over the weekend – once grabbing some breakfast with Rebecca on Sunday afternoon and another time showing off his shirtless body at the beach in Australia before flying to the states.

Simon‘s hit series The Mentalist will have its series finale on February 18 and he recently chatted with The Evening Times about life after the show.

“I’m looking forward to enjoying the simple things socially, actually reconnecting with friends and family that I’ve been a little bit out of the loop with for the last seven years,” Simon said. “I’d love to be the assistant coach of my kids’ soccer team, and actually be able to go to practices, or just go camping.”

Pierce Brosnan Talks Robin Williams' Death at 'November Man' Premiere: 'He Will Be Loved Forever & Missed Forever'

Pierce Brosnan is dapper as he hits the red carpet at the premiere of his latest film The November Man held at the TCL Chinese Theatre on Wednesday (August 13) in Hollywood.

The 61-year-old actor was joined by his co-star Olga Kurylenko, director Roger Donaldson, as well as Simon Baker, and Pierce‘s children Paris, and Dylan, who came out to show their support for the flick.

At the event, Pierce opened up about the death of his good friend and Mrs Doubtfire co-star Robin Williams.

“It is a deeply sad time for us all on the loss of Robin Williams,” Pierce told Us Weekly. “My first day on set, they said, ‘Do you want to meet Robin?’ I had never met the man, I was so excited. I was so thrilled to have this job in the company of this great star comedian. I walked into the trailer and there was Robin in a pair of Ugg boots, hairy legs, shorts, Hawaiian shirt and hairy chest. That’s how I met Robin Williams, and that’s how I met Mrs Doubtfire. And I had the time of my life. Every day was just sheer magic with the man. His hilarity, his grace, his brilliance of mind and soul. His reverence, sincerity. [It’s a] deep loss.”

“It really has cut deep into all our hearts that he is gone and that he suffered in such pain,” Pierce continued. “He will be loved forever and missed forever.”

FYI: Olga is wearing a Michael Van Der Ham dress.
