Eric the Midget Confirms Role on 'Fringe'

Eric the Midget called in with a big announcement: "I wanted to tell everybody that I have pretty much made the deal to appear on 'Fringe.'"

Eric said Johnny Fratto had even negotiated a 'co-star' credit in the episode.

Eric leaves for Canada--the show films in Vancouver--on the 29th of this month to film for 2 or 3 days: "I have to check with my doctors to make sure it's OK...there's a whole issue with altitude and oxygen."

Oh yeah, and he still needs to get a passport – in a week.
