Biography: Erich Anderson's acting career started with the Friday the 13th movies, but he has continued on to be part of many movie and television productions. He has focused on television, with notable appearances in such series as thirtysomething and NYPD Blue. He also appeared on Melrose Place in a few episodes as Courtney Thorne Smith's character's psychiatrist.

Quote: "The only other movie I had done was this really cheap little flick in Idaho, but it was a disaster - I can't even remember what it was called, and it was never released anyway. And then I played the over-the-hill, right-handed pitcher on Bay City Blues, the Steven Bochco show. I came in to audition for The Final Chapter on a total whim.

It was a Friday afternoon, in the summer of 1983, August or sometime. The audition was over at the Mutual of Omaha Building on Wilshire and La Brea, in a big conference room. And at that point the casting directors had gotten to calling Joseph Zito 'Francis,' as in Coppola, because he had seen like, I don't know the exact figure, but like three hundred guys for the part of Rob. I think Fern and Pamela were exhausted, but they loved Joe. Anyway, I knew it was Friday the 13th but I didn't really know that much about it. I had never seen any of the other movies. I had no knowledge of it at all. But whatever it was, it came down to the job being offered to me. And whatever snobbery I had disappeared in about a millisecond when somebody said, 'You got the part.'" - pg. 104, Crystal Lake Memories
