THANK YOU FOR SMOKING

AARON ECKHART has earned considerable acclaim for many of his roles, including ERIN BROCKOVICH, in which he appeared opposite Julia Roberts 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 that first catapulted him into stardom. Notably, this incendiary film became one of the highest grossing independent films of 1997.

Eckhart recently completed NEVERWAS, alongside Sir Ian McKellan, Nick Nolte, William Hurt and Jessica Lange and CONVERSATIONS WITH OTHER WOMEN, with Helena Bonham Carter. He also recently wrapped production on the true-life crime drama THE BLACK DAHLIA, co-starring Josh Hartnett, Scarlett Johansson and Hilary Swank. He will next be seen co-starring opposite Catherine Zeta-Jones in MOSTLY MARTHA.

Last year, he starred in David Mamet's controversial play "Oleanna,” opposite Julia Stiles, for director Lindsay Posner at the famous Garrick Theatre in London's West End. Film-wise, he starred in Elias Merhige's SUSPECT ZERO with Sir Ben Kingsley and Carrie-Ann Moss. And prior to that, he starred alongside Tommy Lee Jones and Cate Blanchett in Ron Howard's THE MISSING, and opposite Hilary Swank in THE CORE.

Originally from Northern California, Eckhart studied film and theatre at Brigham Young University, where he met Neil LaBute and appeared in many of his plays. In addition to IN THE COMPANY OF MEN, he has starred in three other LaBute films, which include POSESSION alongside Gwyneth Paltrow, NURSE BETTY opposite Renee Zellweger and YOUR FRIENDS AND NEIGHBORS, in which he starred with an ensemble cast that includes Jason Patric, Amy Brenneman, Ben Stiller and Katherine Keener.

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. His theatre credits include Michael Cristofer's "Amazing Grace,” opposite Marsha Mason.
