If this wasn't enough, he won ten thousand dollars on the "Price Is Right" in cash and prizes, and got the opportunity to chit chat with Jay Leno, on the "Jay Leno show".

His first book is a spy thriller, for which he also wrote the screenplay, titled: "Agent 008 The Untold Story" - which is based on actual events! Eriq hopes one day to work on the "Silver Screen" with the man that made him want to be a great actor - Mr. "Denzel Washington" - who Eriq says... is the mentor... he never met.
Eriq − now in his 7th year of being in Hollywood, has decided that after being bitten by the “PRIMETIME” acting bug, he just had to have more! Eriq says that after CO-STARRING on NBC’s “Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip”, with big names like: Director: Thomas Schlamme & Actors: Matthew Perry, Amanda Peet & D.L Hughley.
