story about Jack Huston usually begins with the mention of the illustrious Hollywood family that he was born into—he’s the grandson of the legendary director John Huston and nephew of Academy Award-winning actress Anjelica Huston. The story would proceed to crown him Hollywood royalty, and then follow the other branch of his family tree. Not quite royal, but certainly aristocratic. Huston, you see, is the son of Lady Margot Lavinia and nephew to David Cholmondeley, the 7th Marquess of Cholmondeley. It’s easy, in Huston’s case, to assume that his success was born overnight, or that somehow he had to do less to achieve more.
We recently got together to chat about his most recent movie, Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, and the remake of Ben-Hur, in which he takes on the role that Charlton Heston made famous. Along the way we digress a lot, reminisce, and look to the future.
