Staff and Stars Remember Eric the Actor

Diana DeGarmo, Paul Sheer and more all remember the famous Wack Packer

Despite our sometimes testy on-air relationship the entire staff absolutely loved Eric the Actor. When he visited the show in person everyone lined up to take pictures with him. And not just us - celebrities all over the world loved Eric.

Here we remember him in pictures and words...Bye for Now...

Just heard about the passing of a dear fan. I send my prayers and condolences to his family. Rest in Peace, Eric.

The only proper way to memorialize the greatness of Eric the Actor is to get him a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. #AckAck4Eva
