Danny Huston and his nephew Jack at the MWFF for Two Jacks

American film star Danny Huston and his nephew Jack will attend the Montreal World Film Festival for the premiere of Two Jacks directed by Bernard Rose. They will be accompanied by the film's producer Julia Verdin. In 2011 at the MWFF Huston won best actor for his role in Eran Riklis' Playoff. “I really enjoyed the Festival last year and I'm happy to be returning with Two Jacks,” said Huston. 


“One of the great dynasties of American cinema, the Hustons have given us great films for four generations, beginning with Walter Huston before WWII, then his son the incomparable John, his children Danny and Anjelica, and now Danny's nephew Jack carries on the tradition.” said MWFF president Serge Losique. 

While he showed a natural affinity for the family business with his own childhood Super-8 movies, Danny Huston initially planned to become an artist. By the age of 21, however, he was working alongside his father, directing the main titles sequence for the period drama, Under the Volcano (1984). Huston made his feature film-directing debut with Mr. North (1988), an adaptation of Thornton Wilder's last novel, which was originally set to star his father, but John died a month after principle photography began. 

Huston made his first appearance before the camera in a small role as a bartender in Leaving Las Vegas (1995), and progressed to larger roles in Bernard Rose's lavish adaptation of Tolstoy's Anna Karenina (1997), and Mike Figgis' Timecode (2000). Huston re-teamed with Rose and tackled his first leading role in ivans xtc (2000), playing a dying Hollywood agent on a futile search for sympathy. Huston was nominated for an Independent Spirit Award for his performance and subsequently became a busy supporting player with roles in Hotel (2001), Eden (2001), Alejandro González Inárritu's 21 Grams (2003). He has since gone on to play in a wide variety of parts in such high profile films as Martin Scorsese's The Aviator (2004), Fernando Meirelles' The Constant Gardener (2005) and as Orson Welles in Oliver Parker's Fade to Black (2006). 
Jack Huston continued the family tradition in Robert Dornhelm's TV epic Spartacus (2004) and followed with a growing series of roles including George Hickenlooper's Factory Girl (2006) and Howard McCain's Outlander (2008). This year, in addition to Two Jacks, he is featured in four other films in various states of completion.
