It's all go for David Caruso, star of CSI Miami, filming here, filming there, nipping to the shops to buy factor 1000 sun cream for his lily white skin, due to being a ginger in the sunniest place on the planet.
Apparently he was on set the other day, filming another award winning episode of the hit TV show, when his sunglasses suddenly stopped working. He asked a runner for the number of an opticians in the area, the slow witted assistant thought he said technician and gave the sun shy actor a number for an IT helpdesk.
When the helpdesk worker answered the call, he asked Mr Caruso for the nature of the problem "my specs aren't work goddaammit!" bellowed the Hollywood star.
The helpful helpdesker asked what specs the actor was referring to. After a quick back and forth, during which the red headed thespian grew increasingly agitated, it became clear to the IT helpdesk worker that Mr Caruso was talking about his shaded lenses.
Having only been trained on computers, the technician asked the next question on his list that seemed to fit. "Have you tried taking them off and putting them back on again?"
