A versatile actor and filmmaker, Danny Huston is the son of the legendary John Huston and has wonderful stories to share. He’s built a considerable career of his own, with such films as Martin Scorsese’s The Aviator, Children of Men, Marie Antoinette, 21 Grams, Birth, The Constant Gardener, and Wonder Woman to his credit. He’s also the star, writer and director of The Last Photograph, which is now available on VOD. Leonard and Jessie were utterly charmed by Danny and you will be, too.
Danny Huston felt somewhat doomed when it came to show business. His father John and grandfather Walter were legendary Hollywood figures and his half-sister Anjelica seemed like the coolest person in the world to him. To Danny, getting into the business seemed daunting. But after helping to shoot the opening credit sequence on one of his dad’s films, Danny was hooked. His father was his friend and collaborator but his death left Danny rudderless. And that’s when he started acting. Danny talks with Marc about his many roles, from small independent films to blockbusters like X-Men and Wonder Woman to his new film which he directed, The Last Photograph.

Hitchcock stars Danny Huston and James D'Arcy join host Robin Milling to discuss their roles in the film, which goes behind the scenes during the making of Pyscho.
Huston plays Whitfield Cook, the screenwriter who will do anything to get Hitch to make his movie. Danny tells Robin he can relate to the mythic legend of Alfred Hitchcock as his father John, also a legendary director lived a man vs. myth lifestyle. He particularly enjoyed filming a dream sequence of the infamous shower scene with Helen Mirren as Alma Reville and Anthony Hopkins as Hitchcock.
James D'Arcy plays Anthony Perkins, whose resemblance is uncanny to the late star of Pyscho. He tells Robin for once he was grateful to look like Perkins with a little extra help of colored contac lenses and hair dye. He says they were alot more wearable than the oversized contacs he wore playing the old man in Cloud Atlas.
Next Huston continues his role as Ben Diamond aka the Butcher in Magic City and promises to deliver even more deliciously dark insanity. D'Arcy will play a forensic psychologist in a pilot for A&E called Those Who Kill, but is very cagey about who the serial killer will be.
