‘NCIS: Los Angeles’ Star Eric Christian Olsen Raises Awareness About World Hunger

by Joe Rutland

Eric Christian Olsen of “NCIS: Los Angeles” spent some time on Saturday raising awareness about the plight of world hunger.

Olsen, who plays Marty Deeks on the CBS crime drama, shared a video in which he was recognizing
“World Food Day.”

Take a look at what he shared on his Instagram account.

According to the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations website, “Collective action across 150 countries is what makes World Food Day one of the most celebrated days of the UN calendar. Hundreds of events and outreach activities bring together governments, businesses, NGOs, the media, and [the] general public. They promote worldwide awareness and action for those who suffer from hunger and for the need to ensure healthy diets for all.”

“NCIS: Los Angeles” airs on Sundays at 9 p.m. Eastern, 8 p.m. Central. Besides Olsen, other stars on the show include Chris O’Donnell, LL Cool J, Daniela Ruah, Linda Hunt, and Gerald McRaney.

‘NCIS: Los Angeles’ Star Revealed What Typical Day On Set Is Like

So, Outsiders, don’t you wonder what a typical day on the set of “NCIS: Los Angeles” is like?

If that’s you, then we’re going to let Olsen talk about it. He was asked about it at the Monte Carlo TV Festival in 2013.

“We usually do 60 to 70 hours a week,” the “NCIS: Los Angeles” star said. “So we’re up pretty early, which is fun. LA is just a big traffic grid, so at 5:30 a.m., there isn’t a ton of traffic out there.”

Olsen said he gets to have a different schedule for movies. But that’s not the same as being on the CBS TV show.

He said for the “NCIS” show that “we shoot for 10 months out of the year, 60 to 70 hours a week. It’s really like a family. You’re stuck with these people, regardless of whether you love them or not. Everybody says this, but we really did get lucky.”

Olsen Is Also Looking Ahead To Executive Producer Role With ‘Rescue MIA’

Olsen is married to actress Sarah Wright and they have three children. 

Last Thursday, he announced on Instagram that he is going to be the executive producer of “Rescue MIA,” a first responders’ show.

The entertainment outlet Deadline revealed that the actor’s Cloud Nine Productions will produce “Rescue MIA.” The show will use Miami as a backdrop.

The series is being written by Juan Carlos Coto. Now, Outsiders, he has been an executive producer on “9-1-1” before.

James Hanlon, who directed episodes for “Station 19” and “Chicago Fire,” is writing an episode, too.
