Biography CLOSE THE FULL BIOGRAPHY

Eric Christian Olsen is best known for his starring role as Cameron Green on the critically acclaimed Fox series "Get Real" (1999). That role eventually led to a feature debut in Michael Bay's drama "Pearl Harbor" in the comedy feature "Not Another Teen Movie" (both in 2001). His feature starring role came the following year in the independent film "Local Boys," in which Olsen was cast as a surfer whose life of surfing and friends changes dramatically with the huge emotional responsibilities brought on by his father's recent death. In 2003, Olsen was cast in the prequel "Dumb and Dumberer." The comedy, which co-starred Olsen as the younger version of Jim Carrey's character, featured an outstanding comedic ensemble cast which included Eugene Levy, Luis Guzman and William Lee Scott. In addition to acting, Olsen has been balancing a life of sports and schooling for several years. He was captain of his high school ice hockey team in Quad Cities, Iowa. His academic abilities landed him a scholarship at a private university in Southern California where he recently completed his Pre-Med studies. Olsen was also the youngest comedian in the nation for Comedy Sportz.
