Eric the Actor called in to agree to star in the Colin Quinn-directed remake of “Taxi Driver.” What’s more, the Wack Packer said he had no demands.

Howard said he thought Eric would be fantastic in the film and noted it would finally earn him the moniker “Eric the Actor.”

Later, Eric again insisted that he wasn’t a Wack Packer. As Howard has noted before, however, denial is the first sure sign one might be a Wack Packer.
