Danny Huston

The third generation of a Hollywood empire that included father John Huston, sister Anjelica Huston and 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 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). 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. After portraying Greek god of the sea Poseidon opposite Liam Neeson in "Clash of the Titans" (2010) - a role he reprised for the sequel "Wrath of the Titans" (2012) - Huston played the flamboyant attorney to Jack Kevorkian (Al Pacino) in Barry Levinson's acclaimed cable film "You Don't Know Jack" (HBO, 2010). He went on to play King Richard the Lionheart to Russell Crowe's " Robin Hood " (2010), before turning to the small screen to portray fictional mobster Ben "The Butcher" Diamond on the acclaimed cable series "Magic City" (Starz, 2012-13). As fans were awaiting the second season of his new series, Huston had a supporting role in "Hitchcock" (2012), a showbiz biopic about Alfred Hitchcock (Anthony Hopkins) and the difficulties he had making "Psycho" (1960). The film also starred Helen Mirren as Hitchcock's wife, Alma Reville, Scarlett Johansson as Janet Leigh and James D'Arcy as Anthony Perkins. He closed out the year with a Golden Globe nod for Best Supporting Actor for his work on "Magic City." Huston's TV work continued with turns on two seasons of Ryan Murphy's "American Horror Story" (FX, 2011- ), as well as the limited series "Paranoid" (Netflix 2016). During this period, Huston also co-starred in Tim Burton's "Big Eyes" (2014), Spanish historical drama "The Liberator" (2013), action thriller "Pressure" and Bernard Rose's stylized adaptation "Frankenstein" (2015). Following supporting roles in romantic dramas "All I See is You" (2016) and "Newness" (2017), Huston co-starred as a military man opposite Gal Gadot in comic book blockbuster "Wonder Woman" (2017). Additional film credits include "Game Night" (2017), "Angel Has Fallen" (2019), and "Consecration" (2023).
