Eric Christian Olsen is one of those actors you’ve seen in a bunch of different movies and TV shows, but you probably don’t know his name. That’s because over the past few years, Olsen has been working consistently on shows like NBC’s Community, Brothers & Sisters, Fired Up, and he recently started on NCIS: Los Angeles. Basically, he’s one of those actors right on the cusp of being recognized.
However, a few months ago, when I was in Toronto visiting the set of The Thing prequel, Olsen met up with the group I was with at a local restaurant and no one recognized him. I think that’s about to change.
