Eric Christian Olsen (NCIS: Los Angeles): My favorite real couple is Michelle and Barack. Michelle gave that speech at the DNC and I was like, “Goddamn, she is amazing!” I wish she would have run for president. I think that watching them with those two kids, I think that they are great examples for how to navigate, obviously, an incredibly stressful job but still understand the core of us as people, as a family.
As most of you know the world suffered a big lost on 19th Janury this year. We lost a bright soul, an amazing man and a wonderful actor in Miguel Ferrer to cancer.
I teamed up with a few wonderful people behind your favorite NCISLA sites:
♥ Ana behind Daniela Ruah fans

The cast and crew is scheduled to attend the PaleyFest on March 21.
Eric Christian Olsen grew up on the border between Iowa and Illinois on the Mississippi River. Half of Olsen’s friends were Bears fans while the other half were Packers fans. Olsen decided to join his dad who also happens to be a Minnesota native as renegades and root for the Vikings.
Surprisingly, Olsen’s least favorite Viking to root for growing up was Randy Moss. Olsen thought Moss had so much natural talent but didn’t have the commitment and work ethic that someone like counterpart Jerry Rice had.
“He drove me a little bit crazy because he was so cocky but he was so good like the years with Culpepper and Randy Moss, he would throw it up in the air and Moss would just come down with it,” Olsen said.
What might be even more shocking to Vikings fans is who Olsen’s favorite Viking to ever play in Minnesota was – Brett Favre.
“When he won a Vikings jersey and everyone in Green Bay was burning his jersey, that was a great year for me,” Olsen said. “That’s my generation of football players, that’s the quarterback I grew up loving and I think that to this day no matter how hard he got hit he got up and he was smiling and he was in the next play and he was a stud. Brett Favre is the real deal.”
Today, Olsen admires wide receiver Stefon Diggs. Every year, Olsen attends at least one Vikings home game and he was impressed when he witnessed Diggs playing catch with kids for an hour during warm-ups with no cameras surrounding him.
“He’s someone who’s got so much natural talent who came out of nowhere,” Olsen said. “He plays the game the way that I love to watch the game. I think from the standpoint of appreciating where he is and celebrating that with his fans, I stand behind that guy 100 percent. He’s a true talent and gentleman.”
When he’s not cheering on the Vikings, Olsen stars onNCIS: Los Angeles which airs Sunday nights at 8 p.m. on CBS. Olsen’s brother is a former Navy SEAL and coincidentally plays his stunt double on the show.
“You can always tell when it switches from me because I’m running through and it switches to him and he’s a little bigger everywhere,” he said. “His biceps are bigger and then he dives out of the window and things explode.”
American Made (September 29)
What It Is: Based on a true story, American Made depicts the life of Barry Seal, a TWA pilot who became a drugs and weapons smuggler for the Medellin cartel, while also working for the DEA, eventually getting mixed up in the Iran-Contra scandal. Tom Cruise plays Seal, with Sarah Wright, Domhnall Gleeson, and Jesse Plemons co-starring.
If You Need Convincing: Cruise’s last project with American Made director Doug Liman was the fantastic sci-fi thriller Edge of Tomorrow. The role of Seal, who seems anti-heroic at best, could be a fun departure for the star, who has largely stuck to genre films in recent years (he’ll also star in The Mummy this summer).
