THE RUM DIARY
AARON ECKHART (Sanderson). With numerous credits to his name, Aaron Eckhart 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 Stephen 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 critical attention. Notably, this incendiary film became one of
the highest grossing independent films of the year.
Eckhart earned both a Golden Globe and Independent Spirit Award nomination for
his starring role in Jason Reitman's directorial debut Thank You for Smoking for
Fox Searchlight. He was most recently seen in Battle: Los Angeles, Rabbit Hole
opposite Nicole Kidman, and in director Christopher Nolan's The Dark Knight as
Harvey Dent/Two Face.
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.
Other film credits include Sean Penn's The Pledge opposite Jack Nicholson, the
romantic dramedy Love Happens opposite Jennifer Aniston, Oliver Stone's Any
Given Sunday, the indie film Meet Bill, and Molly opposite Elisabeth Shue. He
also starred in the Alan Ball drama Towelhead, and opposite Catherine Zeta-Jones
in No Reservations. In addition he has appeared in John Woo's adaptation of
Phillip 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 Conversation with
Other Women opposite Helena Bonham Carter. His theater credits include Michael
Cristofer's "Amazing Graceā€¯ opposite Marsha Mason.
Eckhart resides in Los Angeles.
