Howard got Eric the Actor on the line to praise his In Plain Sight performance: "You can barely understand what he's saying...but it's worth watching. For sure. Eric's on there for all of ten seconds." Eric said he was a committed actor: "This personality you hear on air is a f***ing act. It's not my personality. … Legitimately, I'm a pleasant person to be around." Howard laughed that he'd seen as much when Eric attended a taping of AGT's San Francisco auditions: "He doesn't say anything. He just stares at you."
