Aaron Eckhart Biography

With numerous credits to his name, Aaron Eckhart is positioned among the industry's finest. He has earned considerable acclaim for his roles, including the love interest of Julia Roberts in "ERIN BROCKOVICH" for director Stephen Soderbergh. However, it was his portrayal of a love-scorned, vengeful man in Neil LaBute's controversial film, "In The Company Of Men," which first drew him critical attention. Notably, this incendiary film became one of the highest grossing independent films of the year.
Eckhart earned both a Golden Globe and Independent Spirit Award nomination for his starring role in Jason Reitman's directorial debut "Thank You For Smoking" for Fox Searchlight. He was most recently seen costarring opposite Johnny Depp in "The Rum Diary", in the Sci-fi action film "Battle: Los Angeles", "Rabbit Hole" opposite Nicole Kidman, and director Christopher Nolan's "The Dark Knight" as Harvey Dent/Two Face. He will be seen next in the modern-day epic "I Frankenstein", Radius-TWC's "Erased" and alongside Gerard Butler in "Olympus Has Fallen".
Originally from Northern California, Eckhart studied theatre and film at Brigham Young University, where he met and appeared in many of Neil LaBute's plays. In addition to "In The Company Of Men," he has starred in three other LaBute films including "Possesion" with Gwyneth Paltrow, "Nurse Betty" opposite Renee Zellweger, and "Your Friends And Neighbors" with Ben Stiller and Katherine Keener.
Other film credits include Sean Penn's "The Pledge" opposite Jack Nicholson, the romantic dramedy "Love Happens," opposite Jennifer Aniston, Oliver Stone's "Any Given Sunday", the indie film "Meet Bill", and "Molly" opposite Elisabeth Shue. He also starred in the Alan Ball drama "TOWELHEAD" and opposite Catherine Zeta-Jones in "No Reservations". In addition he has appeared in John Woo's adaptation of Phillip K. Dick's short story "Paycheck" opposite Ben Affleck and Uma Thurman, Ron Howard's "THE MISSING" opposite Tommy Lee Jones and Cate Blanchett, "THE CORE" opposite Hilary Swank, Brian De Palma's "The Black Dahlia", and "Conversations With Other Women" opposite Helena Bonham Carter. His theater credits include Michael Cristofer's Amazing Grace opposite Marsha Mason.

Eckhart resides in Los Angeles.
