Kaj-Erik Eriksen at Playboy And Universal Pictures' Kick-Ass 2 Event At Comic-Con - Sponsored By AXE Black Chill on 7/20/2013 in San Diego, CA. Kaj-Erik Eriksen (born 15 February 1979) is a Canadian actor.He is best known for his roles as Danny Farrell in the television series The 4400, Jeremy Peters in the television series Boston Public, and as the son of the main character in the 1990s show The Commish.
After only a few jobs as an extra and a couple of small speaking roles, he got his first big break when he landed a part in the independent film Quarantine.
The shoot was very low budget and the cast and crew had to climb through broken windows to get to the set that was inside an abandoned, rat-infested warehouse.
Kaj-Erik loved it and was hooked on acting right away.
Shortly after Quarantine, Kaj-Erik did his first of two guest stars on the TV show Mac Gyver, which was his favorite show as a child.
In 1991, after working on a number of movies, and guest starring on various television series, Kaj booked the role of David Scali, the son of Michael Chiklis' character on the long-running ABC drama The Commish.
The well-respected show catapulted Eriksen into the mainstream American TV world, earning him nominations for a Hollywood Reporter Youth Star Award, a Youth in Film Award, and two YTV Achievement awards.
During The Commish's five year run, Eriksen worked on numerous other projects including the re-make of the classic film Captains Courageous, and popular TV shows Goosebumps and Are You Afraid of the Dark? At age 17 when The Commish ended, Eriksen moved to Los Angeles and continued his career and schooling there, making guest appearances on television shows such as Home Improvement and Walker, Texas Ranger.
Kaj-Erik returned to Vancouver in 1999 to shoot two seasons of Beggars and Choosers, a short-lived series that received critical praise as well as a cult following.
In 2001 after returning to Los Angeles, Kaj landed the role of Jeremy Peters on David E. What was supposed to be a four episode arc turned into a recurring role that lasted 2 seasons.
It also ended up being one of Eriksen's most recognizable roles to date.
Eriksen returned to Vancouver once again in 2004 to play Danny Farrell on the hit USA Network television series The 4400, one of his favorite projects to work on to date due the close "family atmosphere" of the cast and crew.
