Jack Huston is popping up all over. Who is this guy? Any relation to Angelica, Danny, John, or Walter? Well, it turns out, all of the above.
Earlier this week we announced the Roadside Attractions December release of the twenty-seven year old actor’s upcoming film Hemingway’s Garden of Eden with Mena Suvari. Now the actor is shooting a British crime comedy with Ray Winstone and Colm Meaney called The Hot Potato, the first film directed by vet sound editor Tim Lewiston (he also wrote and produced).
You might have glimpsed Huston in HBO’s Boardwalk Empire (Richard Harrow) or ABC’s Eastwick (an eight episode arc through 2009-2010). He turned up as a depression vampire victim in Twilight: Eclipse and had small roles in Outlander (2008) with James Caviezel, Factory Girl (2006) with Sienna Miller and Guy Pearce, and a handful of other low-budget, limited release films.
Jack Huston is the legendary John Huston’s grandson, Tony Huston’s son, Anjelica Huston and Danny Huston’s nephew—see the resemblance to Danny below. He also appears to share DNA with Johnny Depp, Peter Sarsgaard and Giovanni Ribisi. Not bad.
The Sopranos creator David Chase has also cast Huston in his upcoming feature film debut, an untitled under-the-radar 60s music-themed coming-of-age story. Huston will co-star along with John Magaro (My Soul to Take) and newcomer Will Brill. Sopranos star (and E Street Band member) Steve Van Zandt (he played Silvio, Tony’s right hand man) is also involved as music producer and supervisor and exec producer.
