Ward Horton Discusses His Career, Breakout Role In ‘Annabelle’ And Much More!

ward-horton-2014-feature

Hailing from scenic Morristown, New Jersey, Ward Horton didn’t get the typical start you would expect for a leading man in the entertainment industry. Although he dabbled in acting in his youth, he attended Wake Forest University where he earned a BA in Business. After a few years as an investment banker in North Carolina, Ward made the move to follow his passion for acting and headed to new York City to pursue his dream of becoming working actor. His hard work and dedication paid off in spades as he continues to turn the heads of industry insiders with his standout performances. His latest role in ‘Annabelle’ finds him at the top of his game.’Annabelle,’ is the highly anticipated spinoff of ‘The Conjuring,’ which broke box office records and is one of the highest grossing horror films of all time. Directed by John Leonetti, Ward Horton is part of a very talented which includes Annabelle Wallis, Tony Amendola and Alfre Woodard.

Horror fans where first introduced to Annabelle in ‘The Conjuring, but New Line Cinema’s spine-tingling supernatural thriller (hitting theaters on October 3rd) exposes her dark past. In the film, John Form (Ward Horton) has finds the perfect gift for his expectant wife, Mia—a beautiful, rare vintage doll in a pure white wedding dress. But Mia’s delight with Annabelle doesn’t last long. On one horrific night, their home is invaded by members of a satanic cult, who violently attack the couple. Spilled blood and terror are not all they leave behind. The cultists have conjured an entity so malevolent that nothing they did will compare to the sinister conduit to the damned that is now…Annabelle.

Jason Price of Icon Vs. Icon recently caught up with Ward Horton to discuss his career, his evolution as an actor, the challenges of bringing ‘Annabelle’ to the screen, working alongside one of the creepiest dolls ever put on film and what fans can expect from this chilling new tale of horror!

Ward Horton

Ward Horton

You didn’t have the typical start when it comes to being an actor. What can you tell us about that and what led you to a career in the entertainment industry?

Ya know, I guess I was a late bloomer in figuring out what I wanted to do with my life! I guess I am still trying to figure it out! [laughs] I grew up acting and did a lot of theater when I was younger. I did a little bit in college. I went to Wake Forest University, which was an amazing experience for me. My freshman year, I did a play but then I kind of got away from it. I think I can be very practical and I didn’t think this profession was a practical profession. I got away from it and gave it up. For five years I didn’t do it. I declared finance my major and went into asset management after school after doing many different things. I worked down in North Carolina for three years doing that until I got married. My wife called me out on not doing what I wanted to do with my life. She felt like I was settling for something because it was practical and wasn’t something I was truly passionate about. Luckily, I have the wife that I have that gave me the kick in the butt to pursue something I had always wanted to pursue professionally, so I did that and the rest is history!

That is terrific! Who would you cite as your biggest influence as far as other actors or people who pushed you as an artist?

Going all the way back to high school, the director for all the plays I did in high school was someone who early on influenced me. As my career has gone on, I have had so many mentors and coaches along the way who have had such an influence on me. They have really helped steer my career in the direction that I wanted it to go. Guys like Bob Krakower has been a great friend and coach of mine and Andrew Stewart-Jones who is a wonderful coach. As far as actors go, I love the legends. I love watching all of the Paul Newman stuff. I love his subtlety and stillness. When I think of actors who have really influenced me personally, I would say he is right at the top of the list.

Your latest project, “Annabelle,” is creating quite a buzz. Were you familiar with the franchise beforehand and what drew you to the role?

I don’t know the genre a lot because I have kids now, so I can’t really allow myself to dabble in that world too much. In general, I don’t let my mind go there when it comes to thinking about evil. I know evil is all around us but I don’t allow myself to play in those waters too much! I watched “The Conjuring” and I thought what they did with that film felt new, real and grounded in the genre of horror in a way I hadn’t seen before. I had the opportunity to audition for this and meet the creative team behind it and it was a no-brainer! They are able to do things that may have been done before but they are doing them in different ways. The premiere was last night, here in LA, and watching with a live audience and seeing peoples reactions to it made all of us feel like we had accomplished what we had set out to do.

'Annabelle' hits theaters nationwide on October 3rd.

‘Annabelle’ hits theaters nationwide on October 3rd, 2014.

What type of preparation went into bringing this character from script to screen?

In this film I play the character of John Form, who is a doctor in training. He is an expectant father and all around pretty good guy. He is there for his wife and he is a supportive husband. In a way, I feel like I have been preparing my whole life for this role because as an actor you always want to jump into a situation where you can try something you have never done before or test yourself. In this case, as a husband and father myself, I wanted to know how I would react in a situation where the safety of my family is at risk and to what lengths I would go to protect them. In a way, I feel like my life has prepared me for this and now I got to jump off the ledge and see how I would react. As far as the content of the film, I did do some research on Ed and Lorraine Warren, who are the paranormal specialists back east who wrote the book, “The Demonologist.” One of the chapters is the “Annabelle” chapter, which our film is based upon. That was a huge source of information for all of us on set. There were times when I would be reading chapters before I went to bed at night, which probably isn’t the smartest thing to do because it is definitely some freaky stuff! [laughs] It allowed you to jump into that world. While I might have not allowed my mind to go there in the past, when we started working on this project, I kind of had to. It was interesting! Hearing all of the stories from people and learning about the experiences people have gone through that are other-worldly was definitely eye-opening for me.

'Annabelle'

‘Annabelle’

They say you take a little bit away from your time on every project. What did you take away from your time with this talented cast and crew?

Anytime you do a film, actually, I won’t say anytime because it isn’t always the case. However, on this project, I will take away some amazing relationships and work experiences with people like John Leonetti, Annabelle Wallace and the legendary Alfre Woodard. It is not every day that you get to jump into a game like that with people working at the top of their craft and profession. For me, I was a sponge on set and soaking it all up. Being able to play in that world for a while was very, very special and I was fortunate to have been there.

Let’s talk about Annabelle herself for a second. Whether it is in a trailer or on a poster, this doll is terrifying. How creepy is this thing in real life on set?! [laughs]

Yeah, she is pretty terrifying! When you show up on set at 5 o’clock in the morning and she is sitting in the makeup chair next to you and that is all you have to look at for a while, it can change the outlook of your day pretty quickly! [laughs] Of course, the real doll is back east in Connecticut in the home of Lorraine Warren behind glass, protected and blessed by an ordained minister twice a month. She might not look quite as scary as the doll we used in the film but she is the one who holds most of the evil! The Annabelle doll we had on set, while she looks really scary, she is really just an actress! She plays the role of a diva really well on set. We always had to wait for her on set and she was always the last one to get there! [laughs]

You surely learned a lot in your journey as an actor. What has been your biggest evolution an actor?

I don’t know if I have one moment because it is such a work in progress. I think you are always learning and trying new things! I think if anyone were to ask me for advice, I don’t know why they would, but I would say only you know what is right inside of you. I think a lot of times as actors we go out and try to give people what we think they want. It is really important to sit back and say “You know what? I have put in the time and put in the effort. I have worked hard at my craft and I am going to do what I feel is right.” If people don’t like it, then people don’t like it and you move along to the next project, audition, meeting or whatever else you are attempting to do. Be true to yourself and everything will work out.

Ward Burton

Ward Horton

Obviously, you are focused on acting at this point in your career but are you interested in exploring the world behind the camera as well?

Yeah, I think all of us as actors would love to get behind the camera at some point. Right now, yeah, I would rather be in front of it. Working with some of the people I have been able to on these sets, both directors and cinematographers, has been great because I am always soaking that experience up. Right now, I am just learning from them and I wouldn’t know how to do it any better but at some point I would love to venture into that world and do it my way to see how that makes me feel and if it is something I want to pursue further. Definitely!

Are you involved with any charity work we can help spread the light on?

That’s really nice of you to ask. I have a niece that was just recently diagnosed with juvenile diabetes, so that is something my wife and I are getting more involved with. Anyone who wants to go out and support the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation, that would be something we would all appreciate. We try to dabble in stuff back in our hometown in Connecticut as well. From soup kitchens to food banks, we try to get as involved as we can but with two young kids at home it can be a challenge to spend as much time as you would like doing that right now. As they get older, hopefully, we will be doing that as a family more and more.

You are certainly staying busy. With all the irons you have in the fire, I am sure we will be speaking again before we know it!

Thank you! I appreciate your time, Jason!

Before I let you go, what are the best places for fans to catch up with you online and tell you about their experiences with this spooky new film?

I am on Twitter at www.twitter.com/thewardhorton, on Instagram at instagram.com/wardhorton and on Facebook at www.facebook.com/wardhorton. That would be awesome! I would love to hear from everybody and see what they think of this film and see if they were scared! I am looking forward to seeing how the audience reacts to it. I think I am going to sneak into a theater to get to enjoy that because there is nothing better than watching an audience freak out when that is what you spent so much time and effort to make happen! I am really looking forward to that!

Director/Writer Reginald Hudlin Discusses All Things ‘Black Panther’

Director/Writer Reginald Hudlin Discusses All Things ‘Black Panther’

Reginald Hudlin has worn many hats in his epic career. Whether directing genre favorites ‘House Party’ and ‘Boomerang’, spending time as the honcho at B.E.T., becoming a driving force behind one of Marvel Comics’ most unique properties, one thing is certain — Hudlin is a creative force who shows no signs of slowing down. Jason Price of Icon Vs. Icon recently caught up with the writer/director to discuss his roots in the entertainment industry, the impact of his early work as a director, and breathing life back into one of Marvel Comics’ most interesting properties, ‘The Black Panther.’

Where did you grow up and how did you get started in your career in the entertainment industry?

I grew up in East St. Louis, Illinois, which is a small town in the mid-west. I started by making a short film in college called ‘House Party’. That film became the template for my first feature film. Even though I only did the first movie, it ended up inspiring a whole franchise of films. That led to me working with Eddie Murphy, Samuel L. Jackson, Matthew Perry and wide range of other stars, projects and publishing.

Your first flick ‘House Party’ recently celebrated its 20th anniversary and ‘Boomerang’ is another film that you helmed. Did you have any idea that these films would have the impact that they did on audiences and stand the test of time?

I remember that I was talking to one of the producers of ‘House Party’. We were debating one of the roles and I said, “One day, people are going to look back at ‘Boomerang’ and they won’t be able to believe that all of these actors are in the same movie! They are all going to be big stars.” I remember that he looked at me like “Whhhhhaaattttt?” [laughs] That turned out to be exactly the case. They all turned out to be big stars! It is still incredibly gratifying to her the enthusiasm that people have about those movies, whether it is ‘House Party’ and people still wanting more of them or ‘Boomerang’ and people still asking for a sequel or the number of people who grew up watching ‘Bebe’s Kids’. It is pretty amazing!

After spending several years working in Hollywood behind the camera, how did you make the jump to creating comics?

You know, I went into movies because I couldn’t get a job in comics! I still have my rejection letter from Marvel Comics that I got in seventh grade! [laughs] I finally had made enough movies, film and television that I could get the attention of the comic book industry where I could write at a fraction of my price, happily!

For those not familiar with the character of Black Panther, what can you tell us about it?

The Black Panther is a lot of things. He is the first black superhero ever created, back in 1966. In fact, he actually debuted the same year as the Black Panther Party for Self-Defense in Oakland. Neither got the idea from the other, they both came up with the idea at the same time. The character himself is an African king of a hidden, technologically advanced nation called Wakanda. He is kind of a combination of king, pope and commander-in-chief. He is an incredible warrior, who is sorta the equivalent of Captain America. What Captain America is for your country, the epitome of the ideals of our nation, that is what The Black Panther is for Africa.

As you mentioned, Stan Lee and Jack Kirby created The Black Panther in 1966. Are you surprised it took so long for people to rediscover the character in the capacity that you did?

Well, ya know, The Black Panther has always had a cult following. You see that a lot in comic books. Look at The X-Men, they actually got cancelled! [laughs] They couldn’t even sustain a book! The got reinvented and now they are one of the biggest superhero concepts on the planet! That happens! Stan and Jack had really fantastic ideas, most of them were ahead of their time. In time, each of them finds the audience that they deserve.

How did the Black Panther make the jump from a comic book to an animated series under your watch?

It was a very fortuitous set of circumstances! I was writing the comic book, originally I wrote a six issue mini-series that the people at Marvel liked enough that they wanted me to write as an ongoing series. Then I was offered the position to be the head of the network at BET. I was doing that job and Denys Cowan, he was my head of animation and a legend of an illustrator himself, suggested that we do The Black Panther as an animated series. I thought it was a great idea! We did a three minute short and the people at Marvel and BET loved it. At that point, we went forward with it as a series. By the time we were deep in production, I decided to leave my executive job but everyone wanted me to stay on-board Black Panther because I was writing it, producing it and kinda doing everything. I did and we finished up the show. It was one of those rare times where I wrote the source material, green-lit the project and then produced it!

You obviously are well versed in making feature films. How does the process of putting together something like the Black Panther Animated Series differ from a live action film? Is it more or less difficult?

It is more difficult because I am not as hands on. I have done animation in the past as the writer/producer of the ‘Bebe’s Kids’ feature film and as executive producer of ‘The Boondocks’. I love animation but as a director of a live-action project, I can easily tell an actor, “Stand here, now pick it up! No! Let’s change the timing of that!” and it happens instantaneously. Those very minute changes involve a lot of work when you are dealing with animation.

You have an amazing voice cast for the project. What can you tell us about that process?

I am so very fortunate. I thought that Djimon Hounsou would be the perfect guy to voice Black Panther. We approached him and I started pitching the character. He knew exactly who the character was and had been following the project and he immediately said yes. I called some old friends of mine like Alfre Woodard and Kerry Washington, who are two people that I have been wanting to work with for years. They signed on right away. Jill Scott, I was a huge fan of and we had mutual friends in common. When I approached her about the project and started explaining to her who the character was, she stopped me. She said, “When I was a little kid, I made a list of things that I wanted to do and one of them was to play Storm! So, I am happy that you called but I am not surprised!”

Music plays a very important role in The Black Panther, as it does in all of your projects. Was it difficult to get that music to match your vision?

I am really horribly demanding when it comes to music. I have a ton of ideas musically but the only instrument I can play is the stereo! [laughs] I really look for a great composer. I was very fortunate to find Steven James Taylor for the job. We hardly reused any music! He wrote a full score for every episode. So, if you think about that, it is like 20 minutes of music times six. He did it in an incredibly short time span. The music wasn’t approached like, “Oh, we are going to have a big symphonic score.” We have all kinds of African music and instruments going from drums to kolimbas to koras to berinbows. There is an incredible range of music and sounds used for the score. He had an incredible range of sounds to produce and a huge volume to produce but he handled it all with the greatest of ease.

What was the biggest challenge for you while working on The Black Panther, either in the comic book form or the animated series?

The biggest challenge is telling a story that is accessible to people who may have never picked up a comic book in their lives but at the same time, pleasing the hardcore fan that may have been following this character from the beginning or read the last version of the character and comes in with a set of expectations. That is the tricky part!

Are there any plans to do a second season of ‘The Black Panther’?

Ya know, that is up to the audience. If they embrace this, then we will do more!

You did a lot of great work when you were with Marvel Comics. Is there something during that time that stands out in your mind as a career highlight?

The first thing is, just going to have a meeting at Marvel! [laughs] It is pretty awesome! And to be immediately embraced by John Quesada and Axel Alonso, who is now Editor-In-Chief at Marvel. Just that working experience everyday was as good a working relationship as any that I have had in Hollywood. They were smart, tasteful and supportive. I was very insistent on working with John Romita Jr. on that first story arc. John is not just one of all the all-time great artists but he is really fast, technically brilliant and one of the nicest guys that I have ever met. Just becoming friends and having a working relationship with John was an absolute joy. Working with any number of great collaborators up to Denys Cowan, who I have been friends with for the past 15 years but only recently have we been able to work together on a comic book with the last story arc I did called ‘Flags of Our Fathers’, that was a joy to finally work on a comic book together.

What other projects do you have coming up in the short term that we should be on the lookout for?

There is a large graphic novel that I can’t quite announce yet that I am working on but it is 30 pages too long at moment. Hopefully, I can cut those pages out and get it finished soon. There are some original properties that I have been developing too. Those are probably the next things in the comic book world.

What is the best advice that you have for anyone who would like to get involved in the entertainment industry?

Talent is a thing that you can develop but the guy or gal that shows up on time and does the assignment often can go further than a person that is more talented but is flaky or lazy or difficult. Be a hard worker, a talented worker, be a dependable worker, whether you are an employee or a boss and you will go far.

You have a great website set up at www.hudlinentertainment.com. Would you like to let fans know more about that before I let you go?

I love you so much! [laughs] The website started because I wanted it to be a place where I could interact with fans about comic books. People want to interact about a lot of things whether it be comics, movies or politics. Then I started dealing with folks who were finding out about my comic book work but didn’t know where to buy it, so I started a retail side called Reggie’s World where people can buy my comics or Dwayne McDuffie or ‘War Machine’ or ‘Scalped’ and buy T-shirts or sculptures. One of the nicest things that I have heard when I have talked to retailers is when they say, “Reggie, I love when your books are in the stores because they attract a different audience than normal comes in to our store. We want to attract that diversified audience.” If through my website I can turn more people onto comic book culture, than I am very happy!

Awesome! I thank you very much for your time! You are a true inspiration and it is great to finally get a chance to talk to you about your work!

Thank you so much!

HBO Renews ‘True Blood’ For A Fourth Season

HBO Renews ‘True Blood’ For A Fourth Season

HBO has renewed the hit show TRUE BLOOD for a 12-episode fourth season, it was announced today by Michael Lombardo, president, HBO Programming. Created by Alan Ball, the series will begin production of new episodes early next year in Los Angeles, with debut set for summer 2011.

“The new season of TRUE BLOOD is off to a terrific start, as enthusiasm for this unique show continues to build among both subscribers and critics,” noted Lombardo. “We’re looking forward to more chills from Alan Ball and his gifted team next year.”

“I am beyond thrilled to be able to continue working with this amazing cast and crew,” says Ball. “This is the most fun I have ever had.”

Mixing romance, suspense, mystery and humor, TRUE BLOOD takes place in the not-too-distant future, when vampires have come out of the coffin, thanks to the invention of mass-produced synthetic blood that means they no longer need humans as a nutritional source. The show follows the romance between waitress Sookie Stackhouse (Anna Paquin), who can hear people’s thoughts, and her boyfriend, 173-year-old vampire Bill Compton (Stephen Moyer), who went missing at the end of season two, and is now the object of a frantic search. Alan Ball (creator of the Emmy®-winning HBO series “Six Feet Under”) created and executive produces the show, which is based on the best-selling Sookie Stackhouse novels by Charlaine Harris.

The 12-episode third season of TRUE BLOOD, which launched June 13, has already inspired critical raves, with Entertainment Weekly calling it “faster, sleeker, more vicious, more fun than it already was,” as well as “summer’s best TV.” USA Today hails the show as “fabulously wild,” while the Washington Post describes it as “electrifying.”

Season three credits: TRUE BLOOD was created by Alan Ball; based on the Sookie Stackhouse novels by Charlaine Harris; executive producers, Alan Ball and Gregg Fienberg; co-executive producers, Brian Buckner, Nancy Oliver and Alexander Woo; supervising producer, Raelle Tucker; producer, Mark McNair.
