In 1992, Eigeman filmed a pilot for an American version of the British cult sci-fi television show Red Dwarf playing the part of Arnold Rimmer; however, the show was not picked up as a series. During the mid-1990s, he appeared in a series of television advertisements for Pacific Bell that highlighted his sarcastic, straight ahead delivery. In these spots, Eigeman always appeared in dark suit and tie, regardless of the situation.
