We had the good fortune of connecting with Eric Finch and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Eric, why did you pursue a creative career?
Looking back I guess I have always had the entertainment bug in me. Though I never pursued it till I was much older and had a family of my own did the actor in me start to emerge. I was always behind the camera, now I am front and center and loving every moment of it.
Alright, so let’s move onto what keeps you busy professionally?
I Decided in the beginning of my professional career if something is worth doing its worth doing well. As a celebrity Look Alike you are obliged to conduct yourself and to respect for the celebrity you resemble, having been recognized by Snoop himself and his team I find myself in a unique position.
It is always important to have representation by an reputable agency The guidance is priceless and has made my career rewarding.
Learning something new every day helps me grow as a person and an actor. Coming from a military background has helped my focus on important decisions. After leaving the military I went into Talent Relations Management with some of the top clubs in CA. Working with Jamie Fox, Ludacris and Lil Jon gave me an insight into the entertainment business.
From there I realized that I had a resemblance to Snoop Dogg and the more I researched the profession as a Look & Sound Alike the more it intrigued me.
Now I travel the world as the #1 Snoop Dogg Look & Sound Alike: stand-in, double, voice over artist, live appearances: for print, film, TV, commercials, music videos and social media.
Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
What I love about Los Angeles is the diversity of this town. Here are a couple of spots I like to visit. Always…. Hollywood & Vine, the people and the atmosphere there are always entertaining. From its history to the present this location captures it all. Griffith Park another great spot, looking out over Los Angles from the top at the observatory shows just how spread out LA is.
Riversides Mount Rubidoux has some of the best hiking trails lets your mind go to the days when western movies were shoot in CA.
A little out of LA a fun restaurant called The Yard House in Rancho Cucamonga….. where the Atmosphere, customer service the vibe is great, not to mention the food.
But my most favorite place of all in CA is Disneyland. If Disney was to offer me to play Micky Mouse for the day at the park, I would be the best Micky ever……
Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
I have a wonderful group of supporters from my wife, who is my rock, cheer leader and encourages me to be the best I can be. My
kids feed my creative inspiration and are my biggest fans.
