He's played Nick Naylor, Dr. Josh Keyes, Bill, and Harvey "Two-Face" Dent, but this weekend you'll see him as Staff Sargent Michael Nantz in Battle: Los Angeles, the new sci-fi action movie from director Jonathan Liebesman (who we have an interview with tomorrow). Aaron Eckhart has dedicated himself to Battle: LA and the character of Nantz since the start - he helped Liebesman shoot the test footage to get it greenlit and essentially became the leader of the ensemble cast when shooting down in New Orleans. I had the honor of interviewing Mr. Eckhart recently and we had a great chat about all things Battle: LA, so check it out below!
Watch our video interview with Battle: Los Angeles lead actor Aaron Eckhart:
Thanks to Sony and Aaron Eckhart for allowing me to shoot this with my Flip cam. As much as I admire his entire career, I stayed pretty much on topic with Battle: LA this time because I had so much to ask about, so we covered as much as possible in the time given. Battle: Los Angeles arrives in theaters this weekend and also stars an ensemble cast including: Bridget Moynahan, Michael Peña, Michelle Rodriguez, Ne-Yo, Ramon Rodriguez, Noel Fisher and Adetokumboh M'Cormack. I saw the movie and thought it was a totally kick ass non-stop-action flick that delivered exactly the kind of action I love seeing! Hope you enjoyed the interview.
