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.
