BATTLE: LOS ANGELES

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

Eckhart starred in Jason Reitman's directorial debut Thank You for Smoking for Fox Searchlight, which earned him both Golden Globe and Independent Spirit Award nominations for his work. He co-starred in Warner Bros.' highly successful The Dark Knight as Harvey Dent/Two Face for director Christopher Nolan, and most recently in Lionsgate's critically acclaimed Rabbit Hole opposite Nicole Kidman, for which he received an Independent Spirit Award nomination. He will next be seen in The Rum Diary opposite Johnny Depp.

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 Possession with Gwyneth Paltrow, Nurse Betty opposite Renee Zellweger, and Your Friends and Neighbors with Ben Stiller and Catherine Keener.

Eckhart also starred in 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, Alan Ball's drama Towelhead, Oliver Stone's Any Given Sunday, No Reservations, the Scott Hicks remake of the 2001 German film Mostly Martha opposite Catherine Zeta-Jones, and the romantic dramedy Love Happens opposite Jennifer Aniston.

Eckhart resides in Los Angeles.
