With numerous credits to his name, AARON ECKHART (Burke Ryan) 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 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 drew him attention. Notably, this incendiary film became one of the highest-grossing independent films of 1997.

Eckhart recently starred in Warner Bros.' The Dark Knight, in which he played Harvey Dent/Two- Face for director Christopher Nolan. He was also seen in Jason Reitman's directorial debut Thank You for Smoking, for Fox Searchlight, which earned him both Golden Globe and Film Independent Spirit Award nominations for his work, and starred opposite Catherine Zeta-Jones in No Reservations, the Scott Hicks remake of the 2001 German film Mostly Martha, released by Warner Bros. in 2007. His other recent films include the indie films Bill, opposite Jessica Alba, and the Alan Ball drama Nothing is Private.

Eckhart will next be seen in Bruce Robinson's adaptation of Hunter S. Thompson's novel "The Rum Diary,” alongside Johnny Depp, and opposite Nicole Kidman in Rabbit Hole.

Originally from Northern California, Eckhart studied theater and film at Brigham Young University, where he met Neil LaBute and appeared in many of LaBute's plays. In addition to In the Company of Men, he has starred in three other LaBute films including Possession, with Gwyneth Paltrow; Nurse Betty, opposite Renée Zellweger; and Your Friends & Neighbors, with Ben Stiller and Catherine Keener. Eckhart also starred in John Woo's adaptation of Philip 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. Eckhart's other film credits include Sean Penn's The Pledge, opposite Jack Nicholson, Oliver Stone's Any Given Sunday and John Duigan's Molly, opposite Elisabeth Shue.

His theater credits include Michael Cristofer's Amazing Grace, opposite Marsha Mason. Eckhart resides in Los Angeles.
