Aaron Eckhart as President Benjamin Asher in FilmDistrict's 'Olympus Has Fallen'
Aaron Eckhart could easily have a career in politics. Aside from those movie star good looks and jutting jaw line, he's got an affable and engaging manner that makes you feel like you can really trust him.
Of course, since he's not a politician, we can see no reason not to trust him, especially as he opened up to us about his latest movie, "Olympus Has Fallen." Eckhart plays President Benjamin Asher, who is taken hostage after a group of heavily armed and highly trained North Korean terrorists take over the White House. Fortunately, Asher's former secret service agent Mike Banning (Gerard Butler) is even more well-trained.
While on the campaign trail, Eckhart spoke candidly about what role he's most recognized for (hint, it's not Two-Face), if Dennis Rodman will like this movie, and why we should vote for Eckhart instead of Jamie Foxx, who will also be playing the president soon (in "White House Down"). "Olympus Has Fallen" opens wide today.Read More »from President Aaron Eckhart Talks Two-Face, Dennis Rodman & ‘Olympus Has Fallen’
