Several years later, he began his acting career performing in school plays, before moving to Sydney, Australia for his high school senior year. He left high school without graduating, but earned a diploma through an adult education course and graduated from Brigham Young University (BYU) in 1994, gaining a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in film.

Eckhart has chosen roles in an eclectic range of movies, from science fiction films such as The Core (2003) and Paycheck (2003) to romantic dramas likeConversations with Other Women (2006) and No Reservations (2007).

Eckhart gained wide recognition as George in Steven Soderbergh's critically acclaimed film Erin Brockovich (2000) and, in 2006, received a Golden Globe nomination for Best Actor for his portrayal of Nick Naylor in Thank You for Smoking.
