'Fringe' gets a visit from Howard Stern's Eric... the Actor

You know the alternate universe on Fringe? Well, it’s about to get a visit from the alternate universe of satellite radio’s Howard Stern. The feisty fellow known on Stern’s show as (sorry for the political incorrectness, but it’s, y’know, Howard Stern) Eric the Midget is going to appear on the second episode of the new season of Fringe. Born Eric Lynch, he wants to be known as Eric the Actor now, and Fringe producers say he was a “delight to work with.”

Various websites have had rumors that Eric will be sporting some prosthetic make-up, but really, we’ll just take Eric the Actor any way we can, in this world or the other.

What do you think of this casting?

    As ungrateful as the little putz can be, I still enjoy seeing him live a better life- Thanks to Howard..I highly doubt he was a “delight to work with”, however. Anyone who listens to the show knows all the hoops he made Fringe’s executives jump through just to bring him to Canada! Either way, look forward to seeing the episode. Looking even MORE forward to the radio gold he produces for the show lol. Sadly, all the uninformed,biased, anti-Stern haters will never truly understand how big Howard’s heart is

    • etm

      Totally agree. I love ETM, but love Howard even more!!

    • Jackie

      Eric “The Complaining” Midget was a delight? We all know thats not even remotely true. Eric “The No Talent” Midget…

      I’m glad someone posted this link to his Facebook page!!! I love how this article refers to him as “Eric the MIDGET”!!!! ACK ACK
      Howard is the reason that lil guy gets any attention!!

    Howard totally rocks … Eric totally sucks … he’s such a whiner. Maybe he’ll quit calling the show now and get on with his “acting” life.

  • Don

    Can’t wait to see Eric’s debut! And agree with everyone else that the best part will be hearing the reaction on Stern.

    I’m looking forward to see what Fringe got him to do. I’m even more interested in hearing the Stern show’s reaction to it the next day. It would be great to see Eric the Ack Acktor pop up other places too. Like maybe as a villain to the wheel chair dude on Glee.

    If you’ve ever listened to Eric the Midget speak it is glaringly obvious that he has Asperger’s syndrome, which is characterized by (1) marked impairment in the use of multiple nonverbal behaviors such as eye-to-eye gaze, facial expression, body postures, and gestures to regulate social interaction,(2) failure to develop peer relationships appropriate to developmental level,(3) a lack of spontaneous seeking to share enjoyment, interests, or achievements with other people, (4) lack of social or emotional reciprocity. It amazes me that Stern has never picked up on this.

      I think that he’s far too communicative and “social” for that condition. He clearly has anger issues, but who wouldn’t in his condition, but he used to spend a lot of time communicating with people online and talks on the phone endlessly. The few people who I’ve known who had Aspergers were never as social as ETM. I’m not saying that you’re wrong, but while he does have some symptoms, it also could be due to animosity brought on by his various conditions and the way he was probably treated for most of his life.

    • darclyte

      Also, Howard isn’t a behavioral psychologist, and might not even have a clue as to what Asperger’s is in the first place. I’m sure he knows about Autism, and ETM is FAR from Autistic, so he’d probably never even start to make any connection. He just thinks that ETM is miserable due to his “lot in life.”

        Only Islamic Financial System can help to recover the world ecnmiooc crises and nothing else. People around the glob should now understand why the world economy is failed. I strongly believe that it is failed only because of practicing and following the non Islamic banking system where everything is based on the interest and it is against the nature. I would call upon the economists and sensible people of the world to sit and rething about my advise and try to adopt Islamic financial system, I am pretty sure every one will benefit from this system.
