Aaron Eckhart to play Two Face in Batman

Aaron Eckhart who played main bad guy in Paycheck, is in final negotiations to play Harvey Dent/Two Face in The Dark Knight, Warner Brothers Pictures’ sequel to Batman Begins, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

In Batman lore, Dent is the district attorney of Gotham City and an ally of Batman. After half his face is disfigured by acid, Dent becomes the insane crime boss known as Two Face. He chooses to do good or evil by flipping a coin.

Christopher Nolan will be returning to the director’s chair as well as Christian Bale as Batman and many of the actors from the first film such as Morgan Freeman and Michael Cain.

Heath Ledger joined the cast last summer, signing up to play the sardonic and murderous villain the Joker probably the best known Batman villain.

Eckhart gained notice recently for his performance in Thank You for Smoking in which he was nominated for a Golden Globe for best actor.
