Eric in The Legend of the Creepy Guy in the Woods (2017)
Bread's Crumbs Series - Corporal Crunch
For several years, Eric acted within the Bread's Crumbs series and didn't participate in any other projects. In November 2015, he was cast in Creepy Guy 4, and filmed the project from July 2016 to February 2017. He would also have a villainous role in the short film Pizza Might Come, and made his most recent appearance with the release of Creepy Guy 4 in March 2017.
Eric made his film debut in 2014 with Bread's Crumbs, playing the character of Corporal Crunch. Eric wasn't entirely interested in the project and thus barely appeared in it. At the time, Scott Pincus didn't know Eric very well, and he mistakenly credited him as "Erik". Around this time, Ryan Bowman offered Eric a chance to appear in Jurassic Shark III: The Revolution as a masked InGen employee, but Eric turned down the offer as he wasn't interested.
Eric went on to play Corporal Crunch in the sequel, Bread's Crumbs 2: Electric Boogaloo, which was filmed and released in June 2015. Unlike in the first film, Eric actually has lines in this installment. In August, unreleased archival footage of Eric from Bread's Crumbs 2 was used in The Conundrum Dimension. was used Several months later, Eric grew interested in working with Scott on their high school graduation project, for which Scott hoped to make a full length movie. Eric decided to work with Scott on the film, and in November 2015 he was added to the cast of The Legend of the Creepy Guy in the Woods - the decided project. The film was set to be Eric's first major project with Scott, considering he had smaller roles in Bread's Crumbs and its sequel.
For several months, Eric still didn't participate in any LordStarscream100 films. In June 2016, a brief scene of Eric was filmed for Bread's Crumbs 3: Scrub Slam; Eric didn't even know his "cameo" was being filmed, and was still credited for the project.
In July 2016, Eric began filming The Legend of the Creepy Guy in the Woods, participating in much of the film's production throughout the year. In August 2016, he played The Rodent in the short film Pizza Might Come - his first official role outside of the Bread's Crumbs series. Eric completed the majority of his scenes for Creepy Guy 4 by December 2016.
Eric filmed his final scenes for Creepy Guy 4 indoors in February 2017, and also recorded ADR for several scenes. The film was ultimately released in March 2017, and Eric presented it in June 2017, shortly before graduating high school.
Eric was set to return as Corporal Crunch for Bread's Crumbs 4: Mass Consumption, having expressed interest in the project and even planning to show up for filming. However, he ultimately resigned from the project due to scheduling conflicts and a lack of interest.
On March 5, 2018, the fifth Creepy Guy in the Woods film, The Cult of the Creepy Guy in the Woods was announced, and Eric was confirmed to not be reprising his role for the film. Reasons as to why have not been disclosed, though Scott says it was a creative decision and has nothing to do with Eric.
It is unconfirmd as to whether Eric will appear in any of Scott's future films, as he and many of the other cast members haven't seen or spoken to Eric in some time. Scott is open to any opportunities to work with him again.
