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

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

Cate Blanchett; The Core opposite Hilary Swank; Brian De Palma's The Black
Dahlia, and Conversations with Other Women, opposite Helena Bonham Carter.
