Eckhart: The Dark Knight is 'a heavy movie'
The Thank You For Smoking actor stars as Harvey Dent/Two Face a morally ambivalent character who starts out as a district attorney but transforms in to a deranged criminal.
"The thing that struck me about this movie were the contemporary issues. The mirror of our times. It is a heavy movie in a lot of ways," Eckhart said.
He also became the latest cast member to sing the praises of Heath Ledger, who may believe will win a posthumous Oscar for his role as The Joker.
"Once he started doing his thing, I was an actor in the scene, but I was also a fan. I was looking at him and going 'Wow dude, that is pretty good stuff.'," he said.
The Dark Knight goes on general release in the UK on July 25th.
