Next Generation Los Angeles Steering Committee
Eric Ladin, most recently known from the hit AMC original series “The Killing,” played Jamie Wright, the brilliant campaign manager for the mayoral candidate Darren Richmond (Billy Campbell). Starting his career in HBO’s hard-hitting, topical miniseries, “Generation Kill,” Eric is probably best known for his recurring role as January Jones’ brother in AMC’s award winning series, “Mad Men,” as well as his recurring role as Chloe Sevigny’s diabolical doctor/brother in HBO’s “Big Love.” His other credits include guest-starring roles on “Justified,” “Castle,” “The Defenders,” “Criminal Minds,” “Bones,” “The Mentalist” and “CSI.” He will be seen next in the upcoming independent film Highland Park, opposite Parker Posey and Danny Glover.
In addition to acting on camera, Eric stars as Cole McGrath in the PlayStation 3 video game Infamous 2 and as Ellis in the first-person shooter game Left 4 Dead 2. In a complete change of pace and genre, he voices History Channel’s new “Mudcats,” a series about the adventures of real life Oklahoma “mudcatters” and the history behind the hand-fishing tradition, which began in the 1800s.
A proud native of Houston, Texas, Eric now resides in Los Angeles and is thrilled to be a part of UNICEF’s Next Generation Los Angeles Steering Committee. He welcomes the opportunity to help UNICEF achieve the goal of ZERO!
