A versatile film and stage actor known for disappearing into characters, Eric is determined to keep you guessing, one existential crisis at a time. Eric has a knack for playing duplicitous loners, and he relishes the opportunities he has been given to play multiple characters within the same project. Highlights include playing 13 different characters in the stage play, The Baltimore Waltz, and a record 21 characters in the play, Amelia!

Eric is a magna cum laude theatre graduate of The Ohio State University – Go Bucks! He has played hundreds of characters over his career in plays, films, tv, and commercials. Recently, Eric starred in the sci-fi action-thriller, Agent (another dual-personality type of role), and made his television debut on TNT’s Franklin & Bash. Eric loves to travel and has performed in Edinburgh in The Bacchae, in London in the Notting Hill Carnival, and toured the East Coast alongside the Virginia Symphony Orchestra and Buffalo Philharmonic in A Midsummer Night’s Dream. In Los Angeles, he trained for many years at The Howard Fine Acting Studio in Howard’s master class and recently has enjoyed taking improv classes at the Upright Citizens Brigade. Eric is proud to be an active participant in the LA theater community, and has performed with the Echo Theater Company, Theatre40, Crown City Theatre, Moving Arts, Arcane Theatreworks, and others. He also works frequently (13 productions and counting) with immersive theater company, Unbound Productions, which produces the Ovation Award-winning Wicked Lit shows every Halloween season.

Eric is a photographer and avid hiker, with a particular love for nature and landscape photography. See his work on Instagram @wanderingnatureguy, or visit his actor page @whoiserickeitel.
