What’s the ultimate resistance test a Rolex Explorer can be put through? Hiking a mountain top? Skiing down its slopes? Repelling? River rafting? How about being strapped to the wrist of a Hollywood stunt double, day after day.
Eddie is 59, and his seemingly endless list of action credits range from 1980 television classics like The Dukes of Hazzard, The Fall Guy, Magnum, P.I., Walker, Texas Ranger, to big-production films including Transformers, The Avengers, The Green Hornet, Mr. & Mrs. Smith, Moneyball, to name a few. In 2002 Eddie was nominated for a Taurus World Stunt Award for best stunt coordination for the film Rush Hour 2.
Eddie remains long friends with the actors he has doubled for. After all, he has literally taken the fall for them.
Slash, the famous guitarist from “Guns N Roses,” made a special rendition of “Rocket Man” for Eddie for the occasion.
In a one-hour-27-minute Disney Plus original documentary produced by Dwayne Johnson and Dany Garcia, which premiered last month on Disney’s streaming platform, we can follow Eddie and his team as he prepares for that stunt, widely considered the most dangerous stunt in cinematic history.
