Eric Christian Olsen best known for portraying playing dumb jock types, but much to everyone's surprise this guy was pre-med, was in a gifted program in elementary school and he speaks Japanese...
Eric was born in Eugene, Oregon, but spent his childhood in Bettendorf, Iowa. He wasn't always interested in acting; he comes from an athletic family so naturally he played sports a lot. Eric had to move to Malibu once he received a scholarship from Pepperdine University, His major: "Liberal arts-based pre-med". Translation, an arts major with a concentration in biology and a dual concentration in English.
Because he couldn't afford the room and board in Malibu, he turned to acting to earn some cash. First commercials, then guest spots on shows like ER and then Get Real with Anne Hathaway, not mention bit parts as Young Gun shooter, in Pearl Harbor.
Eric is probably best known for his role as Austin, the cocky blonde guy, in Not Another Teen Movie. He also appeared as Lloyd in Dumb And Dumberer: When Harry Met Lloyd.
Eric has worked in a couple of thrillers named Cellular with Chris Evans, and Mojave with Rider Strong.
