Aaron Eckhart recently did a Q&A with Wizard Universe, and the actor, among other things, revealed some aspects of his character.
SPOILERS FOLLOW: From Wizard Universe:
I have done scenes as Harvey Two-Face. It’s interesting. I won’t tell you exactly what we’re going for, but I think that I can say that it will use all of today’s technology to create this character. He’s going to be interesting, and I think that’s what makes this character important in the movie—you get to see him as he was before, as in the comic books. Harvey is a very good guy in the comic books. He’s judicious. He cares. He’s passionate about what he loves and then he turns into this character. So you will see that in this film.
On that angle, CHUD got Jeremy Smith to spill all he knows about the process that Nolan went through to film the two parts of Eckhart’s character:
“Basically, Nolan shot complementary takes of Eckhart in Two-Face makeup so he could visually represent the duality of Dent in a less cartoony fashion,” says Smith. …[Harvey/Two Face] is a fifty-fifty split of the same actor giving two wildly divergent performances in the same shot.
