During an interview with The Talk, Olsen says he does
some of his own stunts. However, he leaves the dangerous stunts to his brother,
David.

“I have a lot of stunts and I do as much as I can, but [the
producers] are always afraid you’re going to get your nose torn off,” said Eric.
“So, I have a stunt double, who is actually my brother. He was in the Navy SEALs

also comes down and he does my stunts. He looks like me, except for he’s much

David has his brother’s back when it comes to stunts, but how does Eric really feel about it? Eric told The Talk hosts that he sometimes gets nervous when he thinks about the dangerous things his brother is required to do. One thing that weighs on him is the possibility of having to call their mother if David gets hurt:

My mom freaks out the whole time; she gets so worried. She’s like, ‘When it’s not you and something gets blown up, I know it’s your brother.’ And I get much more nervous watching him do it than me.
