THE DARK KNIGHT

AARON ECKHART (Harvey Dent) earned Golden Globe and Independent Spirit Award nominations for his role as an unapologetic tobacco lobbyist in 2005's "Thank You for Smoking,” which marked Jason Reitman's directorial debut. Eckhart more recently starred in Brian De Palma's fact-based murder mystery "The Black Dahlia”; the romantic comedy "No Reservations,” opposite Catherine Zeta-Jones; and the independent film "Meet Bill.” He next stars in Alan Ball's "Towelhead,” which opens in limited release this fall, and "Traveling,” opposite Jennifer Aniston.

Eckhart studied theater and film at Brigham Young University, where he first met writer/director Neil LaBute and appeared in several of LaBute's plays. In 1997, Eckhart first gained attention from film critics and audiences when he starred in LaBute's first feature film, "In the Company of Men.” The controversial feature earned widespread acclaim and won a number of awards, including an Independent Spirit Award for Eckhart for Best Debut Performance.

Over the next five years, he starred in three more LaBute films: "Your Friends and Neighbors,” with Ben Stiller and Catherine Keener; "Nurse Betty,” with Renée Zellweger; and "Possession,” opposite Gwyneth Paltrow. During that time, Eckhart also received praise for his memorable performance as the love interest of the title character in Steven Soderbergh's acclaimed 2000 biopic "Erin Brockovich,” opposite Julia Roberts. Eckhart's additional film credits include "Conversations with Other Women,” opposite Helena Bonham Carter; John Woo's action drama "Paycheck,” with Ben Affleck and Uma Thurman; Ron Howard's "The Missing,” with Tommy Lee Jones and Cate Blanchett; Jon Amiel's "The Core,” opposite Hilary Swank; Sean Penn's "The Pledge,” joining an all-star cast, including Jack Nicholson and Vanessa Redgrave; Oliver Stone's "Any Given Sunday”; and John Duigan's "Molly,” opposite Elisabeth Shue.

On the stage, Eckhart theatrical credits include Michael Cristofer's play "Amazing Grace,” opposite Marsha Mason.
