Amazon Original Series "The Romanoffs," Created by Matthew Weiner, Casts Aaron Eckhart

Amazon Original Series The Romanoffs, co-produced with Weinstein Television and created, written, directed and executive produced by nine-time Emmy award winner Matthew Weiner (Mad Men), has added Aaron Eckhart (Sully) to its slate of guest stars joining the series. The Romanoffs is a one-hour contemporary anthology series set around the globe featuring separate stories about people who believe themselves to be descendants of the Russian royal family. Weiner is set to direct all episodes. Eckhart joins recently announced Academy Award nominee Isabelle Huppert (Elle), Golden Globe nominee Marthe Keller (Marathon Man), Emmy nominated Christina Hendricks (Mad Men), Emmy nominated John Slattery (Mad Men), Jack Huston (Boardwalk Empire), and Amanda Peet (Togetherness). The series will debut on Prime Video in the U.S. next year.

With numerous credits to his name, Aaron Eckhart is amongst the industry's finest. He has earned considerable acclaim for his roles, including the love interest of Julia Roberts in Erin Brockovich for director Stephen Soderbergh. However, it was his portrayal of a love-scorned, vengeful man in Neil LaBute's controversial film In the Company of Men which first drew him critical attention. In addition to In the Company of Men, he has starred in three other LaBute films including Possession, Nurse Betty, and Your Friends and Neighbors. Eckhart earned both a Golden Globe and Independent Spirit Award nomination for his starring role in Jason Reitman's directorial debut Thank You for Smoking. Other film credits include The Rum Diary, Battle: Los Angeles, Rabbit Hole, The Dark Knight as Harvey Dent/Two Face, The Pledge, Any Given Sunday, Towelhead, The Black Dahlia, Conversations with Other Women, Olympus Has Fallen and its sequel London Has Fallen. Eckhart was most recently seen co-starring opposite Tom Hanks in Clint Eastwood's Sully, and in Bleed for This opposite Miles Teller.

Prime members will be able to stream The Romanoffs next year via the Amazon Prime Video app for TVs, connected devices including Fire TV, mobile devices and online at amazon.com/originals. Members can also download the series to mobile devices for offline viewing at no additional cost to their membership.
