Aaron Eckhart Talks ‘Dark Knight’ Legacy and Acting in French

Aaron Eckhart has worked with a number of standout writer-directors — Steven Soderbergh, Jason Reitman and Christopher Nolan, to name a few — over his 25-year film career. So when the opportunity to work with Matthew Weiner on his new star-studded Amazon anthology series, The Romanoffs, came up, Eckhart jumped at the opportunity.

Over the course of the episode, which is set in Paris and is acted mostly in French, the family’s connection to the Romanovs is revealed as an unexpected person changes the course of Greg’s future.
