Aaron Eckhart Signs On For Matthew Weiner's 'The Romanoffs'

Matthew Weiner, creator of Mad Men, has a new series, and it's rather unique. Today we have word that Aaron Eckhart (The Dark Knight) has joined the cast that already has stars Isabelle Huppert, Christina Hendricks, John Slattery, Marthe Keller, Jack Huston and Amanda Peet.

The Romanoffs is a contemporary anthology series telling the separate stories of people around the globe who believe they're descendants of the Russian royal family. Weiner created the series and will write, direct, and executive produce it. The Romanoffs will debut on Amazon's Prime Video next year.

The Romanoffs, or Romanovs, was the second dynasty to rule Russia for over 300 years (1613-1917). It ended with the abdication of Tsar Nicholas II on March 15, 1917 after the February Revolution.
