Aaron Eckhart and Frankenstein's monster? Wouldn't necessarily put them in the same conversation, would you? Well, you're on the same page as Eckhart himself. According to the actor, who will be seen playing the famed monster in I, FRANKENSTEIN later this week, never could have imagined he'd be tackling such a role. But then again, he probably never assumed he'd be portraying a man with half a face in a Batman movie, or a marine sergeant battling an alien invasion, or the president of the U.S., either. The actor has had a diverse career filled with compelling roles in indies and major studio pictures alike, so perhaps we shouldn't be so surprised to see him playing the most well-known walking corpse of all time.
In the interview below, I talk to Eckhart about the intense training he went through for the role of "Adam" (who is pretty buff, corpse or not), his newfound status as an cinematic action hero, and whether or not he sees Frankenstein getting a bride to call his own in the future.
