Daniel Sallis Huston, mostly referred to as Daniel "Danny" Huston, or simply Danny is the Italian-born, American actor who portrays Poseidon on Clash of the Titans and Wrath of the Titans.


His father, John Huston, produced Danny's first feature as a director, Mr. North, an adaptation of Thornton Wilder's last novel, Theophilus North. In 1995's Leaving Las Vegas, he moved in front of the camera and has since acted in over 20 films. That same year, he directed the film The Maddening. He gave his breakthrough acting performance in the independent film Ivans Xtc. The Bernard Rose feature was nominated for several Independent Spirit Awards in 2003, including Best Male Performance for Huston’s portrayal of Hollywood talent agent Ivan Beckman. Huston has worked nonstop as an actor ever since.

Soon after Ivans Xtc, he worked on Martin Scorsese's The Aviator with Leonardo DiCaprio and Alec Baldwin, for which the ensemble cast was nominated for a 2004 SAG Award. In 2006, Huston received the Golden Satellite Award for Best Supporting Actor for his performance as Sandy Woodrow in Fernando Meirelles' The Constant Gardener. That year, Huston starred in the critically acclaimed Australian western The Proposition with Guy Pearce and Emily Watson. The film premiered at the Sundance Film Festival.


  • Huston has been married twice. His first wife was Academy Award nominee Virginia Madsen.
  • He married his second wife, Katie Jane Evans, in 2001 and they separated in 2006. Evans took her own life in October 2008 before the divorce was finalized.
    • They had one daughter named Stella. He dated Magic City co-star Olga Kurylenko for approximately a year.
