Aaron Eckhart Mormon
He was indeed Latter-day Saint at one time and even served a mission in France and Switzerland. He graduated from BYU in 1994.Unfortunately,he hasn’t been too diligent in attending church lately.
In an interview he did with Entertainment Weekly he said, “I’m certainly not a deacon, I’m not a priest. I’m sure people think I’m a Mormon, but I don’t know that I’m a Mormon anymore, you know? To be honest, to be perfectly clear, I’d be a hypocrite if I did say that I was, just because I haven’t lived that lifestyle for so many years.”
Aaron Eckhart Bleed For This
To play his role as real-life boxing trainer Kevin Rooney in Bleed for This, It meant that he had to gain 40 pounds and shave his head, “It was hard to gain the weight, especially because I’m usually really active,” he says. “About three months before the film, I completely stopped working out. I also changed my diet and started eating tons of pizza. Gaining 40 pounds really changes your headspace. It helped me get to the place I needed to be to play a character that is a drinker, a gambler, and generally down on his luck.”

Ben McKenzie to Star With Aaron Eckhart in ‘Live’ (EXCLUSIVE)
Updated:may 8, 2018
“Gotham’s” Ben McKenzie will star opposite Aaron Eckhart in the Solution Entertainment Group film “Live,” sources tell Variety.
“Marauders” helmer Steve C. Miller will direct the movie with Jeremy Drysdale penning the script. Courtney Eaton has also joined the cast.
The pic takes place over the course of two hours and follows a disgraced cop who is put in charge of finding the police commissioner’s kidnapped daughter, Penny, who’s trapped somewhere in the city and running out of time. With a deranged killer on his heels, Penny’s only hope is teaming up with an ambitious young online reporter who films the wild chase live.
McKenzie plays an antagonist in the film.
Myles Nestel and Craig Chapman will produce through Solution, which was behind the recently released “Kodachrome,” starring Jason Sudeikis and Ed Harris.
McKenzie is best known for his role as police commissioner Jim Gordon in Fox’s “Batman” series “Gotham” — now in its fourth season. He previously starred in “The O.C.” and “Southland,” and some of his prior film credits include “Junebug” and “Johnny Got His Gun.”
The actor recently wrapped production on the Vice pic “The Torture Report,” which also starred Adam Driver and was directed by Scott Z. Burns.
He is repped by CAA, Management 360, and attorney P.J. Shapiro.
