The rare sort of actor who can swing between Harold Hill-type independent film character work and credible, B-list leading man action hero, Aaron Eckhart has, in his latter incarnation, matched wits with aliens, terrorists and the disastrous effects of climate change. So it makes perfect sense that he’d want to tackle a chance to go full-on Jason Bourne. In Erased, he plays ex-CIA agent Ben Logan, who discovers that his high-tech security job in Brussels has been a sham. Marked for termination, Ben escapes with his teenage daughter Amy (Liana Liberato), and tries to stay one step ahead of his dangerous adversaries while also unraveling a wide-ranging international conspiracy that may trace back to an old agency colleague (Olga Kurylenko). I recently had a chance to speak to Eckhart one-on-one, about Erased, his love for his iPhone, his next projects, and the Filipino art of stick-fighting he’s mastered. The conversation is excerpted over at ShockYa, so click here for the read.
