ON THE RISE: Ward Horton Talks ‘Bakery In Brooklyn’ And CBS’ ‘Pure Genius’

ON THE RISE: Ward Horton Talks ‘Bakery In Brooklyn’ And CBS’ ‘Pure Genius’

Ward Horton is one to watch in 2017!

When Ward Horton came onto our radar a few years back, he was generating a buzz in Hollywood for his multifaceted skill set. As the years roll on, he continues to hone his craft and deliver dynamic performances with every role he takes on. In 2017, he is continuing his winning ways with two powerful new projects as he continues to turn heads of fans and critics alike.

Currently, Ward Horton can be seen as one of the leads on the CBS drama, “Pure Genius.” Created by Jason Katims, “Pure Genius” centers on billionaire genius James Bell (Augustus Prew) who built Bunker Hill Hospital determined to revolutionize healthcare and treat the rarest and most challenging medical mysteries, at no charge. Bell persuades maverick surgeon Dr. Walter Wallace (Dermot Mulroney) to be his Chief of Staff. Bell’s team includes Dr. Zoe Brockett (Odette Annable), Dr. Talaikha Channarayapatra (Reshma Shetty), Dr. Malik Verlaine (Aaron Jennings), Dr. Scott Strauss (Ward Horton) and Angie Cheng (Brenda Song). At Bunker Hill, Bell pairs the most brilliant minds in medicine with the most forward thinkers in technology, and cuts bureaucracy out of the equation, all in the interest of saving lives, including his own.

However, Ward Horton’s talents aren’t limited to the small screen! Film fans can catch him starring opposite Aimee Teegarden and Krysta Rodriguez in writer/director Gustavo Ron’s romantic comedy, “Bakery In Brooklyn.” The film centers around two cousins, Vivien (Aimme Teegarden) and Chloe (Krysta Rodriguez), who recently inherited their late Aunt Isabelle’s bakery, a boulangerie that has been a cornerstone of the neighborhood for years. Chloe wants a new image and product, while Vivien wants to make sure nothing changes; add to that the complications new relationships always bring – Chloe’s with a tempestuous Chef and Vivien’s with Paul (Ward Horton), who is the banker who happens to have it out for their business and suddenly their clash of ideas leads to a peculiar solution. The once inseparable cousins split the shop in half with a black line in the middle and each runs her business as she sees fit; unleashing a battle for every customer who walks in the door. Vivien and Chloe will have to learn to overcome their differences and work together as a team in order to save the bakery as well as everything else that truly matters in their lives.

Jason Price of Icon Vs. Icon recently sat down with Ward Horton to discuss his latest projects, the challenges he faced with each and the lessons learned along the way!

It’s great to catch up with you again, especially at the beginning of the year. You have plenty of irons in the fire. Did you have resolutions for the year or anything you wanted to focus on creatively?

Wow! Yeah, I would like to keep working! [laughs] That is definitely the first thing I would like to do! Having a nice, steady paycheck all year long sounds great! I don’t know if that is as creative as it is essential! [laughs] I want to continue what I have tried to do over the last couple of years, which is to pick different projects that stretch me as an actor, work with creative and inspiring directors, writers and other actors. I hope to keep building on what I have tried to build over the course of my career so far.

Ward Horton

That is a great segue to my next question. You are very diligent about choosing some great projects and keeping your career moving forward in exciting ways. What are the keys to longevity in this business?

I guess that is yet to be determined for me! Don’t feel like it’s been that long! [laughs] My career has been long but I think success has been more recent, so I don’t know if I can completely answer. However, I would say being true to who you are and going with your gut on things is very important. I think we oftentimes get in our heads about whether to say yes to this project or whether to disappoint people by saying no to do another project. I think you just have to be true to yourself and go with your gut. I think the more you do that the more confident you will be with who you are and it will show in your work as well. I think that’s why I’m probably starting to have more success recently because I am being true to myself.

Where do you look for creative inspiration?

There is a lot of great channels for work right now in television and film. With television, I feel there are so many different ways to watch it. Additionally, you are seeing so many unbelievable film actors coming back to television that it makes it not only more competitive but also the writing and work is so much better. I’m all over the place with my television watching these days. There are so many shows that I am not sure how they are successful but they are brilliant. A great example is “Stranger Things,” which was a show I was watching recently. I thought, “How is this show this good?!” It’s so good and the kids are amazing! On paper, the show shouldn’t really be successful but it is! There is no telling where it’s coming from and I feel people are becoming more and more creative with how they’re putting their writing out there. There are also producers who are taking chances on things that in the past wouldn’t have been safe bets but their risk is paying off! I find all of that incredibly inspiring!

You have a new film out called “Bakery In Brooklyn.” What can you tell us about the film and what intrigued you about the role?

The timing was great! I think we had last spoken around the time “Annabelle” came out. I was out in Los Angeles and I live on the East Coast. I got on a Skype call with Gustavo Ron, who directed the film, and we really hit it off. We talked about the character I play in the film, Paul, and I can definitely relate to someone who is faced with the dilemma of what they need to do versus what they should do or their heart versus their work. I run to that many times and I think it’s something we have all experienced sometime in our life. Paul is definitely doing that in the film. His bank wants to take this bakery away from these two cousins but he kind of falls for one of them. It comes down to either do the right thing and lose his job or keep his job and stray away from what he really wants to do. For me, all things lined up and I got to shoot back home in New York, specifically Brooklyn. Brooklyn is a really fun area to shoot in and you can really see that in the cinematography of the film; the area almost plays a character of its own. It was beautifully shot.

What did Gustavo Ron bring to the table as a director for this project and what did he bring out in you creatively?

As the writer of the film as well, he was quite close to it. He really allowed us as actors to find our moments. Because it’s a film that was originally written in a different language and being a romantic comedy, there were some adjustments that had to be made on the translation. He was completely open to air collaboration that allowed us to make sure we got it as right as we could. To me, it was the collaboration that really attracted me to the project. As you can see in the film, Gustavo has a wonderful life or cinematography. The shots that he created were beautiful and overall it was a highly collaborative and creative project.

You had good chemistry with the other actors on screen. Did you have much time to break the ice before you began shooting?

No, we were just thrown in the fire. I had just gotten home from LA and we went right to it, so no, but I think we hit it off really well. Aimee Teegarden, Krysta Rodriguez, Linda Lavin, Ernie Sabella, who is a legend I adore, and myself were all able to hit the ground running with it. It’s funny you mention this because Krysta, Aimee and I were out in LA earlier this year and we were all shooting pilots in the city at the same time. We all got together and had a dinner. Not too long after that, all of our shows got picked up, so we all decided that we’re all going to get together during every pilot season and hopefully we will continue to get our shows picked up!

Ward Horton

That’s great! Looking back on this project, what was the biggest lesson you learned from being a part of this cast?

I learned that sometimes you just have to jump in. I think that’s why you have to have good representation because they convince you to do things that maybe you don’t see yourself doing. I feel all of us as actors have a fair amount of fear and we need a little bit of a push to do things! That is definitely something I learned with this film. I didn’t know Gustavo or his work, other than doing a little bit of research beforehand, and decided to jump in, go with it and trust the writing. Experiences can be good, even if things don’t make sense to you at first. Sometimes you just have to take that risk and go for it!

You mentioned the series you are currently starring on. What can you tell us about “Pure Genius” and the character you play?

It’s a show for CBS, a one-hour drama. We shot the pilot in March, we got picked up and we are about 11 episodes into the first season. It’s been a truly wonderful experience! The cast and crew have really gelled. Jason Katims, the creator of our show, has done “Parenthood” and “Friday Night Lights.” Speaking of “Friday Night Lights” and Aimee Teegarden, you can see it all comes full circle! It’s been a great experience and it trickles down from him. He creates a wonderful environment on set and it really carries through to everyone involved. On the show, I play the role of Dr. Scott Strauss. The show is about a text tighten starts a hospital pro-bono; he pays for everything and melds the worlds of technology and medicine together to create the hospital of tomorrow. My character is one of the doctor’s that he has on his staff and has a bit of a history; he is actually an ordained minister. He also speaks fluent Mandarin, which I do not, but Dr. Scott Strauss does! That was an education by fire! [laughs] It’s been a wonderful character. He has a little bit of mystery to him and it plays out throughout the course of the season.

Ward Horton and his cast mates on the set of CBS series ‘Pure Genius.’

What did you bring to the character that might not have been on the original written page?

You know, it’s kind of funny; originally this character was much different. The writers must have seen something in me that changed their minds about how the character was. When I first read the sides for the original audition, the character was quite different than what we ended up putting on screen. Originally, he was more of an arrogant, Ivy League asshole. [laughs] That’s what he was originally and then he ended up being a Mandarin speaking priest! [laughs] Somehow they saw something in my temperament that led them away from going the douchebag route to the man of the cloth route! It was quite surprising to me when I was informed of that right before we started shooting the second episode. I went with it and I think, maybe, my demeanor changed their minds about how they wanted this guy to be.

When it comes to creating characters and flushing them out, is there a process you undertake to bring them to life?

Every character is different but usually there is always something you need to focus on that isn’t particularly in your wheelhouse. For instance, with “Pure Genius,” I’m not a doctor. However, I was able to do some research and spend some time over at Cedars-Sinai Hospital and work with some of the doctors who were there, especially their digital health group. What we are doing on the show is exactly what they are doing at Cedars-Sinai Hospital in bringing all of this new age medical technology to the medical profession. By doing so, they are making patients lives easier and more efficient when they are in the hospital. They’re also coming up with ways to use this technology to solve medical problems that no one has been touching. There was definitely a lot of research that had to go into that! We got to go into the O.R. and things like that. We have also been very fortunate on this show to have doctors at our disposal to walk us through different surgeries. For me, that was a big aspect of it! I knew I really needed to wrap my brain around the medicine side of it. Every project has a little something special in it. My character, Paul, in “Bakery In Brooklyn,” is from the banking world. While one time I was in finance, I wasn’t in the real estate finance world but that is also something I spent a little time wrapping my brain around.

I know our time is short, so I want to hit you with an important question. Many people can look to what you accomplished as an inspiration. What is the best lesson we can take from your journey so far?

I think it comes down to working hard, never giving up and always studying as an actor. I think a lot of people might get to a certain level of success and might feel they don’t have to work on their craft anymore. Like any person in the arts or who has a special skill set, you have to continue to work on it and mix things up to grow creatively. As soon as I got back to New York, I was back in class the same day with a group of people I work with. I’m always excited to try new things and bring the things I have learned from the work that I just did into the mix and see how it works in a new setting. So, in short, I would say keep at it. Keep your head down and go for it. If you believe in it, you can make it happen.

Thanks again for your time today, Ward! It’s great to talk with you again and I’m sure our paths will cross again very soon!

Thank you, Jason! I appreciate it!

Titus Makin, Jr. Discusses His Career, Role On ‘Star-Crossed,’ Music and More!

titus-makin-feature-2014

Charm, charisma, infectious positivity, musical chops and acting ability — Titus Makin, Jr. is a multi-faceted artist who embodies all those qualities and more. You may remember Titus as one of the original “Warblers” on Fox’s hit show “Glee,” for three seasons. Based on the successful popularity of the “Warblers,” he was able to tour the world with the “Glee: Live Concert Tour;” a tour which eventually turned into a feature length docu/drama film. After Glee, Titus went on to star as the lead in the made for television movie, “Gamers”, and had a leading role in the TV movie, “A Cinderella Story: Once Upon a Song”.

Titus is poised to make an even bigger impact on audiences with his role on the CW’s highly anticipated sci-fi drama “Star-Crossed,” which debuts February 27th. The series follows an epic timeline of violence, deception, distrust, and revitalizing love when a persecuted alien on a future Earth, fights against the prejudicial treatment of his people. As “Lukas,” one of the series leads, Titus Makin, Jr. stars opposite Aimee Teegarden, Matt Lanter, Malese Jow and Grey Damon in what is sure to be a sure fire hit! It is his solid work in a bevy of high profile supporting roles like these which continue to turn the heads of critics and fans like that have established Titus Makin, Jr. as a young artist on the rise in Hollywood.

Jason Price of Icon Vs. Icon recently caught up with Titus Makin, Jr. to discuss his role on the CW’s ‘Star-Crossed,’ the challenges of bringing his character from script to screen, evolution as an actor, his musical side and much more!

How did you get started on the road to a career in the entertainment industry?

Interestingly enough, I was on the flip side of acting originally. I started with singing and dancing and my sister was the actor of the family. As I grew up, I went to her plays and started singing more and more. By the time I was a senior in high school, I thought “That looks like so much fun! I want to give it a try!” I auditioned for one of my high school musicals and the ball started rolling from there. I decided I wanted to go to performing arts school and I auditioned for a school in New York. I ended up getting in and the ball continued rolling! I just kept rolling with it!

Titus Makin, Jr.

Titus Makin, Jr.

Who would you cite as some of your biggest influences along the way?

I am such a family person, so my biggest personal mentors are my parents. When it comes to entertainment, Will Smith has been a huge inspiration to me! Family is the biggest thing though. Just watching my sister thrive and go for it and do an amazing job is something I find very inspirational!

A lot of people will recognize you from your role on ‘Glee.’ How did you get involved with the show and what effect did being a part of that terrific cast have on you?

That is an interesting story too! When I first got representation on the acting side out here, I had a sit down with my manager. I was coming from the world of music and dance, so I said “Hey! If you get the opportunity or there is a casting for ‘Glee,’ please send me on it!” Surely enough, a week and a half later, she called and said “Hey! You have an audition for ‘Glee!'” I ended up going in! I had to sing a couple of songs and do a couple of scenes and it worked out! They brought me in for the show and I was able to do it for about two and a half years! It was a great stepping stone and I got to meet great people and learn a lot! I learned a lot about hard work in the film and television industry! It was very cool!

Music and dance are a huge part of your life. What are some of your earliest memories of those elements? Are there any moments that really stand out to you?

When I was younger, I remember I booked my first background dancing job for a boy band called 112. I was able to dance for the opening act as they were on tour. That was huge thing for me! I was like “Oh my gosh! I am going to be like Usher!” [laughs]

The CW's 'Star-Crossed'

The CW’s ‘Star-Crossed’

One of the coolest and most exciting projects you are a part of is the CW’s highly anticipated series, “Star-Crossed.” For those who aren’t familiar with the series yet, what can you tell us about it and the character you play?

“Star-Crossed” is a sci-fi romance drama for the CW. It takes place in the future, 2024 to be exact. Aliens have crash landed on Earth and have been quarantined to an internment camp in our city. This is the first year they are going to integrate some of the alien teens into a public high school to see if we can co-exist. We are all the guinea pigs for this social experiment. It is an observation of the obstacles that come along with equality; which is extremely relevant in our day in age! Simply put, it is a futuristic twist on a modern day story! I play a character named Lucas. Aimee Teegarden plays “Emery” and Lukas is her best friend. Lucas is a human and I am pretty much the comedic relief for all the drama! There is a lot of stuff going on and my character is the tech guy, so every time something is going on and they need to hack into something, figure something out or solve a problem, I’m the guy they call! [laughs] I am the big cushion for all the falls!

How did you get involved with the series initially and was there something about the character that really intrigued you?

I got involved by my representation sending me out for an audition. It was one of my favorite pilots that I had read last season. That was awesome because sci-fi is one of my favorite genres. The CW is really branching into sci-fi this year, so I had read a couple and this was one of my favorites. It was a blessing that I was able to book it. When I was reading the character, I found he was extremely like me but extremely different at the same time. What drew me to him was the fact he was the comedic relief in a sci-fi project, which has always been a dream of mine. Honestly, watching Will Smith in ‘Independence Day’ had a big impact on me because of the way sci-fi and comedy were blended together. The way Lucas and I differentiate is that he is way smarter than I will ever be! [laughs] The terms I have to learn for this character and the day and age we are in is insane! It takes so much practice! There are times when I am like “What in the world does this word mean? I have never heard anything like this in my life!” [laughs] But hey, we grow together, Lukas and I! [laughs]

As you mentioned, we are able to see a bit of your own personality through Lucas. What do you think you brought to the script and character that wasn’t in the original script?

That is an interesting question. If you want to be literal, it was a completely different type they were bringing in for the role. I was definitely the only one of my type cast there and the role ended up going to me. It was pretty clear which way they were going at first but they switched it up! I guess they were interested in the natural urban-esque quirk I brought to the character. [laughs]

Titus Makin, Jr.

Titus Makin, Jr.

You are part of a tremendously talented cast on “Star-Crossed.” They say you learn a little more about yourself with each new project. What did you think you have walked with from your time on this project to date and have there been any challenges that stand out to you?

I definitely walked away with more experience. This was the first time I was able to be a part of a project from the very beginning. Normally, I jumped into a role where I was joining a family as a recurring character or guest star but this time was the first time I was able to be there with the writers creating from the beginning. That was really awesome and an experience I will always cherish and obviously hope continues! Working with the cast and seeing whole really professional people can be was amazing. There was plenty to take away from this experience.

Do any fond memories spring to mind when you look back at creating the first season of “Star-Crossed?”

There were a lot of pranks! One of the other castmates, Grey Damon, who is a great guy and I were able to do a lot of fun stuff. The was also a lot of singing! Malese Jow, who plays Julia on the show, are constantly singing and harmonizing! There was definitely a lot of goofing around and good times!

titus-makin-jr-7

You have had the opportunity to play a diverse group of characters with the projects you have taken on. What do you find yourself looking for these days when it comes to the characters you take on?

I found characters stand out to me when they have a certain realness to them. There are some characters that are very charactery, who are so evil or brooding that there I almost no other way to do them. I really like when you get to see a characters colors throughout the script. When I read a script that has that, I am very excited by it. I get to explore all parts of myself and that is what really attracts me to a role!

Titus Makin, Jr.

Titus Makin, Jr.

Is there a particular process you go about when taking on a new character to bring them to life?

There are a lot of different way to go. I played a role not too long ago where I was a cocaine addict. That required a lot of research to learn about the quirks, mannerisms or way a person would hold themselves. If it is something heavy like that, the role could require research. If it is a little TV friendly, then I just let it settle in and imagine how I would do it and connect to the role within myself.

Is there a particular role or genre you are anxious to tackle in the near future?

Yes, actually! I would love to be in a period piece. It sounds intense but I love things like “12 Years a Slave” that have a solid weight to it! It sounds so exciting to me!

Are you the type of artist who also dabbles in writing or has aspirations to direct in the future?

Yes! I do a lot of writing. As I mentioned, I write music and I plan on being back in music heavily this year, so there is that type of writing but I also write scripts. Along with a lot of my other acting friends, we team up and put together scripts that will hopefully one day be made. I would love to be on the writing side! I am definitely not much of a director! [laughs] I can see that now! As much as I respect and appreciate the talent and patience behind directing, it is just not something I have the patience for! [laughs] However, writing is something I would love to dive into in the future!

When it comes to your craft, how do you feel you have evolved as an artist through the years?

I really think I have evolved through experience. By people giving me opportunities, trusting me with their work and being able to go up there and do it my way, I have really grown. You just learn as you go! If you do it that way, there is no choice but to grow! You make some mistakes but if you are doing it well you are constantly learning something new! It is all one big learning experience; which is awesome!

Titus Makin, Jr.

Titus Makin, Jr.

Looking back on your career so far, is there a role you consider your best work or are you one who considers their best work as something that lies ahead?

Exactly! I’m definite the second one! I don’t feel I have yet to do my best work but I would probably never feel that way because I am a really harsh critic of myself. I am happy with what I have done and I move on but try never to watch my previous work because I am embarrassed to see myself. I definitely think my best work is yet to come!

You mentioned focusing on your music this year, which is terrific! What can we expect out of you in that realm?

My genre, I classify it as singer/songwriter soul. It is a drop between John Mayer meets John Legend. It is very acoustic. I have been writing with some producers and have a show coming up on February 12th at The House of Blues. I am just getting everything going again now because I have been pretty busy shooting but now that we have some down time, I have been able to get my gears turning again!

Other than music, when you have downtime, what do you like to do to let off a little steam in your free time?

I love long boarding! When I say longboarding, most people always say “Oh, you like to surf!” I am like, “No, no! On wheels!” It is like a long skateboard. I love it! It sounds so California of me but it’s true! I love heading down to the beach and playing volleyball with my friends and hang out. That is typically what I do! If I am not doing any of the other stuff to entertain myself, that is typically where I am at least twice a week!

Titus Makin, Jr.

Titus Makin, Jr.

What is the best advice you can pass along to young actors looking to make their career in the entertainment industry?

I would pass along the word “Perseverance.” People will come and go but they have to give you a chance eventually if you are the only one sticking around! They will get to you eventually! Perseverance is extremely important. Something important for me that I have always kept close is my faith. I am a Christian guy, so I pray to God and trust that everything is going to be fine! Those are definitely the two things that have kept me sane!

Are you involved with any charity work we could help you spread the word on?

Absolutely! I am involved with To Write Love On Her Arms. It is an awesome foundation that supports kids who struggle with suicide, addictions, abuse and more. They help in so many ways from getting kids off the streets, keeping them safe or letting them know they are not alone. It is an awesome organization and you can learn more about it at www.towriteloveonherarms.org.

Terrific! One last thing before I let you go, Titus! Where are the best spots for people to connect with you online?

I have a Twitter account, which is twitter.com/titusmakin. I am on Instagram as well at instagram.com/titusmakin and also on IMDB.

Awesome! I want to thank you so much for your time today, Titus! It has been a pleasure and I am we are excited to help spread the word on all of your work!

Thanks so much, Jason! I had a great time talking with you. Take care!

Reconnecting with Eric after a seven year estrangement, the two recall their youthful ambitions and reexamine the choices they’ve made. Accompanied by the band’s ambitious, fiery manager (Taryn Manning – ABC’s Hawaii 5-0, Hustle & Flow, 8 Mile), the legendary music impresario August West (Peter Fonda – Easy Rider, 3:10 to Yuma) and a raucous crew of musicians, they set off on a cathartic journey along historic Route 66 that brings them closer to each other, their history and their destiny. Fueled by a stellar rock ‘n’ roll soundtrack that includes songs by Nirvana, Bob Dylan, Iggy & The Stooges, Alice in Chains, Muddy Waters, The Violent Femmes, Howlin’ Wolf, Jane’s Addiction, and many more, The Perfect Age of Rock ‘N’ Roll fully captures the energy, rebellion, and thrills of the rock ‘n’ roll lifestyle.

The Perfect Age of Rock ‘N’ Roll also stars Lukas Haas, Kelly Lynch, Lauren Holly, Ruby Dee, Billy Dee Williams, Michael K. Williams, James Ransone and Aimee Teegarden.
