With numerous credits to his name, AARON ECKHART (Rethrick) has
positioned himself among the industry's finest. He has earned considerable
acclaim for his roles, including "Erin Brockovich" opposite Julia
Roberts for director Steven Soderbergh. However, it was his portrayal of a
love-scorned, vengeful man in Neil LaBute's controversial film "In the
Company of Men" that first catapulted him into stardom. Notably, this
incendiary film became one of the highest grossing independent films of 1997. He
is currently starring "The Missing" opposite Tommy Lee Jones and Cate
Blanchett, and will star in the upcoming "Suspect Zero" with Ben
Kingsley. Recently, he co-starred with Hilary Swank in "The Core" and,
last year, he starred opposite Gwyneth Paltrow in "Possession," again
for director Neil LaBute.
Originally from Northern California, Eckhart studied theater and film at
Brigham Young University, where he met and appeared in many of Neil LaBute's
plays. In addition to "Possession" and "In the Company of
Men," he has starred in two other LaBute films: "Nurse Betty"
opposite Rene Zellweger and "Your Friends & Neighbors."
Eckhart's other film credits include Sean Penn's "The Pledge"
opposite Jack Nicholson, Oliver Stone's "Any Given Sunday" and
"Molly" opposite Elisabeth Shue. He has also worked and studied in New
York. His theater credits include Michael Cristofer's "Amazing Grace"
opposite Marshal Mason.
