Biography

The third generation of a Hollywood empire that included filmmaking father John Huston and actor grandfather Walter Huston, Danny Huston began his career behind the camera but truly came into his own when he instead positioned himself in front of it. The dashing character actor with the rich voice and raffish charm earned an Independent Spirit Award nomination for sending up the family business in "ivans xtc" (2000), and from that leading role, went on to give outstanding supporting performances in highly acclaimed dramas like "21 Grams" (2003),"The Aviator" (2004), "The Constant Gardener" (2005) and "Children of Men" (2006). Throughout his career, the actor regularly showed an interest in heady, literary-inspired works, but he found his widest audience with a run of edge-of-your-seat thrillers like "30 Days of Night" (2007) and "X-Men Origins: Wolverine" (2009), while portraying historical figures like King Richard the Lionheart in "Robin Hood" (2010) and the ancient Greek god of the ocean Poseidon in "Clash of the Titans" (2010) and "Wrath of the Titans" (2012). Whether on big screens or small, Huston proved that he possessed his father's adventurous spirit and was proudly using it to explore beyond the expected confines of the family name.

Bonus Trivia

.

Huston's memories of directing his father John in the TV movie "Mr. Corbett's Ghost" (The Los Angeles Times, Aug. 28, 2005):"I was in my early 20s.""I was just thinking about it the other day. He was so kind and supportive to me.""There was a situation where he fluffed a line and he said 'cut' in front of the camera, and being young man I had to sort of assert myself. I said, 'Dad, you can't say 'cut.' I am directing.'""And he was so kind. He said, 'I'm ever so sorry. I'll never do it again.'""Of course, he could say 'cut.' How stupid of me to tell him that he couldn't…It was so generous of him to do so."
