Eric Gerard Laneuville is an American television director, actor and martial artist. His first prominent acting roles were in the science-fiction film The Omega Man with Charlton Heston and the ABC television series Room 222 (1969–74). His role as Luther Hawkins in the television series St. Elsewhere is probably his best known role. He also starred in A Force of One playing Charlie, the stepson of Chuck Norris. In more recent years, he frequently directs such one-hour dramas as Ghost Whisperer and Lost.


Laneuville began acting while attending Audubon Junior High School in the Crenshaw, Los Angeles, District. He often played juvenile characters younger than his own age. He appeared in several musicals staged at Audubon by drama teacher Mario Lomeli, including Bye Bye Birdie, Annie Get Your Gun, and Oklahoma!. While taking drama courses at nearby Susan Miller Dorsey High School, he began acting professionally, co-starring as a troubled youth in an award-winning television movie, and becoming a semi-regular cast member on Room 222. He also occasionally appeared on episodes of Sanford and Son, as Esther's adopted son.

Laneuville's first directing assignments were for episodes of St. Elsewhere, in which he also played orderly Luther Hawkins. He has directed episodes of L.A. Law , Quantum Leap , Doogie Howser, M.D. , NYPD Blue , ER , 413 Hope St., Gilmore Girls , Lie to Me , Monk , Invasion, Medium, Lost (2005–08), Girlfriends, Everybody Hates Chris, Prison Break, and Ghost Whisperer. In 1992 he won an Emmy for directing the episode All God's Children of the NBC series I'll Fly Away. He also directed the 2004 television film, America's Prince: The John F. Kennedy Jr. Story. Laneuville continues to act, most recently appearing in a guest role as Dr. Lamar in the TV series Scrubs . He also appeared in the Fear of a Black Hat , a mockumentary parodying 1990s hip-hop culture.
