Detective Eric Matthews is a fictional character from the Saw franchise who appears in Saw II, III, and IV, and was seen in archive footage in Saw V. He is portrayed by Donnie Wahlberg. He is the protagonist of Saw II and a supporting character in both Saw III and Saw IV.


Eric is a cop that is pulled into the Jigsaw case when one of his informants is killed in a Jigsaw trap. Likewise, he has a lot of trouble keeping his temper under control, which damages his relationship with his son and might account for his habit of rigging investigations to guarantee convictions. Later on, Jigsaw kidnapped his son. Eric was extremely worried and didn't hesistate to get him back by any means necessary. Unfortunately, all that was required of him was to be patient.
