Agent Nick Calderon
is a fictional character in the 1996 movie Eraser
, played by Nick Chinlund
. Initially an ally of the protagonist, John Kruger (played by Arnold Schwarzenegger
), Calderon is soon revealed actually to be a corrupt agent working with his partner Schiff and Deputy Robert Deguerin (played by Michael Papajohn
and James Caan
, respectively) in a plot to sell arms to the Russian Mafia
. Calderon is killed by Kruger at the docks near the end of the film.
While originally intended to be another nameless henchman of the villain, Calderon became a fan and cult favorite due to his low voice, memorable quotes, and status as an underdog
character. There have been several fan-made stories made on the character, but they are not considered canon
by the filmmakers.
