Eric Lively (born July 31, 1981) is an American actor. He played the role Nick Larson in The Butterfly Effect 2. He is also known for his role as Mark Wayland in Showtime's hit drama series The L Word.
Eric Lawrence Brown was born in Atlanta, Georgia. He has a sister, actress Blake Lively, half-sisters Lori and Robyn Lively and a half-brother, Jason Lively, who played Rusty in National Lampoon's European Vacation. He is the son of Ernie (nè Ernest Brown) and Elaine Lively. All five siblings/half-siblings are, or have been, in the entertainment industry.
Eric Lively's first movie was as a baby in Brainstorm (1983). After graduating high school, Lively moved to New York City to study photography, his first passion. He studied photography at Parsons The New School for Design in New York City. At one time, he was an Abercrombie and Fitch model.
He guest starred on an episode of Full House at age 13, where he played Stephanie Tanner's first boyfriend. He had a role in American Pie (1999). He followed this up on the television series So Weird, on which he played Carey Bell from 2000 to 2001. He learned to play the guitar for his character on So Weird. Lively then became a cast member of the short-lived 2003 Norm Macdonald series A Minute With Stan Hooper. In 2004 he acted in Speak with Kristen Stewart. In 2005, Lively was offered two different television roles - on 24 and The L Word. He took the role on The L Word as documentary filmmaker Mark Wayland. He chose a recurring role on The L Word over a regular role on 24 because he felt the subject matter was more important. He was part of the cast of the WB series Modern Men from March until May 2006. He was the main character in The Butterfly Effect 2 in 2006.
He also appeared in Pink's music video "Please Don't Leave Me" from her album Funhouse in 2009. Stuntman Justin Sundquist served as his stunt double. He recently guest starred in Lifetime's hit series The Client List.
