Jason Bell & Nicholas Pinnock

Nicholas Pinnock and Jason Bell are long time friends with different careers but with a shared passion for eyewear.


Jason is a former professional American footballer, who played as a cornerback/safety in the National Football League for the Dallas Cowboys. After completing his MBA Bell transiitoned into media, co-hosting The Jason & Osi podcast with Osi Umenyiora. and became co-presenter for the NFL show on ITV. He can also be seen regularly on Sky and hosts all the NFL UK Games and Super Bowl. He has starred in media campaigns for American Airlines, British Airways, Hyundai, Courtyard Marriott and most recently Wilson Sporting Goods.

Nicholas Pinnock has been seen across theatre, television and film for over 30 years. He can currently be seen in Jeymes Samuel’s biblical retelling, The Book of Clarence (Sony) and will next be starring opposite Amanda Seyfriend in Long Bright River for Peacock.

When they realised that they were both friends with Jason Kirk through their love of glasses they approached Kirk & Kirk to explore the idea of a collaboration.

Jason and Karen loved the project and this limited edition Horace is being launched at The Loft in NY this March.

Working in the media has presented Jason and Nicholas with eyewear challenges. They often have to work in varied light conditions or go from outdoor to indoor events so they both wanted a frame that would work as a sunglass and optical. Choosing a Transitions Amethyst lens, they adapted the ever-popular Horace in Matte Black from the Kirk & Kirk Centena Collection to wear in pretty much any environment.

There are only 100 of these frames available.

Made in France to the highest optical standards, the lens can be adapted to carry a prescription + Transitions lens or a ­­simple clear/sun prescription.

A portion of the proceeds will go towards Little Green Pig, a children’s literacy charity based in Brighton, Kirk & Kirk’s home city.
