Exclusive Q&A with Producer-Director Reginald Hudlin AB '83 (Marshall, Django Unchained)

By Brittany Turner AB '10

Reginald Hudlin AB '83 is a television and film writer, director, and producer whose film MARSHALL, about the first African-American supreme court justice, premieres in theaters October 13. His Harvard VES thesis film, House Party, was the basis for the breakout teen comedy that launched his career in the 1990s. Since then, Hudlin has directed and produced films like BOOMERANG, BEBE’S KIDS, and DJANGO UNCHAINED,  and TV shows like THE BERNIE MAC SHOW, as well as a number of live awards specials and events. For three years, he served as President of BET Entertainment, overseeing the successful AMERICAN GANGSTER series, among others. Hudlin is also a lifelong comic book lover, and wrote many of the BLACK PANTHER series for Marvel Comics, as well as an award-winning run of SPIDER MAN.

Q. What made you want to get involved with MARSHALL and tell this story in particular?

A. I was always a Thurgood Marshall fan, always felt that he was one of the most underrated heroes in American history. I thought this would make an especially good movie because it’s a part of his life that we don’t know—we know about him as a judge, and fighting Brown vs. Board of Education—but this is a case that’s very lurid—sex, murder, mayhem, racial tension—and the audience doesn’t know the outcome. It had the makings of a really good legal thriller.

Q. Can you tell me a bit about your background and what inspired you to get into the entertainment industry? How did your VES concentration at Harvard help prepare you creatively for success in your career?

A. I knew I wanted to make movies since i was a little kid. And once I found out Harvard had a film major, it just seemed like the best opportunity. A lot of people learn how to make movies, but I thought having a great education would help you figure out what to make movies about. And I think that’s still true. The craft of filmmaking is important, but how you see and process the world is the most important part of being a good filmmaker.

The film program at Harvard was very documentary-oriented. Anything involving artifice was frowned up. In my year, there was a bit of a rebellion—there were more fiction films made than ever before. But, I think being grounded in reality is a good thing. I think too many filmmakers make movies about movies instead of movies about real life.

Q. How was your experience as President of Entertainment for BET different than one as a creative (writer/producer/director)? Did you prefer one experience over the other?

A. My experience as an executive was vastly different from being creative. But that said, I thought being a creative person made me a better executive, and having been a executive makes me a better creative. I really recommend that everybody switch jobs and be on the other side of the desk. It helps you learn how to be a better partner....

Alumni Profile: Producer-Director R.J. Cutler AB '83 (The Breach, Nashville)

By Nicole Torres AB '11

rjcutler1.pngR.J. Cutler AB '83 has had a long and varied career spanning the worlds of theater, television, and film. He spent his early years after college in the theater, first at the American Repertory Theatre in Cambridge, and later in New York working with the likes of Steven Sondheim, Bernadette Peters, and Kevin Spacey. His passion since the first grade and throughout college was theater, and initially he had no intention of transitioning to Hollywood.

The film that would ultimately spark his Hollywood career, the award-winning The War Room based on Bill Clinton’s presidential campaign, emerged from his own personal interest in politics. Cutler recalls, “In 1992, I got very caught up in the presidential election, really just as a citizen, and later that year had the idea to make a documentary about Clinton’s presidential campaign. That film became The War Room, which was directed by D.A. Pennebaker and Chris Hegedus and produced by myself, Wendy Ettinger and Frazer Pennebaker, and it was through that experience that I was exposed to the whole world of independent film and documentary filmmaking.”  

Cutler loved the experience of working on The War Room and from that point on shifted his focus to the world of film. After The War Room, Cutler directed and produced his first film, A Perfect Candidate, and a string of successful projects followed, including the Emmy-winning American High, The September Issue, The World According to Dick Cheney, Listen to Me Marlon, popular television series Nashville, and the feature film If I Stay, starring Chloe Grace Moretz—to name a few.

Although Cutler began his career in documentary film, these days his slate spans a multitude of mediums, with projects ranging from documentaries to nonfiction and scripted television to feature films. With so many options, it’s a wonder how one chooses which project to pursue.

Cutler answers, “If the work sparks my curiosity and imagination and passion, then I pursue it. Every one of these projects often takes years to develop and requires a tremendous amount of work—and they don’t all get made. So if you’re not going to love every step of the process of developing them and bringing them to life, even if they don’t ultimately end up being produced, then you don’t want to put your time into it. You have to really believe in it and that’s what gets me going. If I believe in something, then I love doing it.”

Cutler and his production team are currently working on The Breach, a six-hour limited series based on Bill Clinton’s impeachment, which will air on the History Channel. Whether or not intentional, the series feels loosely like a sequel to The War Room and a nod to Cutler’s filmmaking roots. However, the series is not a documentary but a nonfictional narrative retelling, based on chief New York Times White House correspondent Peter Baker’s book of the same name. 

The series has been a long time coming, nearly eighteen years in the making. Cutler recalls how he first read the book eighteen years ago, shortly after working with Baker on A Perfect Candidate. Although Cutler knew then he wanted to develop a project based on the book, the time and opportunity to do so had yet to align. He states, “It sat on my shelf all those years until the opportunity to make a scripted series about a presidential impeachment presented itself. But it took a long time; people weren’t doing these kinds of projects even five years ago.” Such is Hollywood.

Some projects come together quickly and others take years, and for Cutler, that is part of what he enjoys so much about the process: the relationships forged along the way. Asked what he considers to be the highlight of his extensive career, Cutler thinks for a moment and responds simply, “the people.” Referencing all the incredible people he’s had the opportunity to work and collaborate with over the years, he concludes, “The list goes on and on and on, so if you ask me what the category of my career highlights are, it’s all the extraordinary people I’ve had the good fortune of crossing paths with, collaborating with, spending time making a project with, creating art together, and that’s what stands out.”

These days, Cutler also finds himself itching to return to his roots in theater. He fondly recalls a life-changing memory from his Harvard days directing theater: “On the opening night, the lead actor in the play unfortunately just had a bad moment and skipped about an hour of the play—closer to 50 minutes, to be generous. He went from one line to the next, and all of a sudden, the entire middle of the play was gone. I felt like I had not prepared him properly; I felt awful and spent the night in a bar in Cambridge drinking Jack Daniels and crying into my beer and feeling very sorry for myself and thinking, ‘Well, that’s the end of that. I guess I’ll never direct another thing as long as I live, and I deserve it.’

“And the next night, he showed up and he gave what I would consider one of the most extraordinary performances I’ve ever seen anybody give on a stage in my life up to that point or thereafter. I learned in that moment, from that experience, that the process of creation, the work that we do, is very much a process, and it has its ups and downs. And like life itself, moments of glory and success are followed almost immediately by your greatest challenges, and moments of your greatest challenges lead you to your greatest triumphs. And embracing it all gives you the opportunity to really experience life through this work in its fullest way. That was an incredibly valuable lesson. So when I think back on my Harvard experience, though there were many lessons that I learned there as a young artist coming of age, that was the first significant one that made me think, ‘Oh, my God, this life is going to be interesting and challenging and exciting perhaps every moment, if indeed I choose this life.’ And I have chosen it, and it has in fact proven to be all of those things.”

In that vein, Cutler’s advice to aspiring artists is action-based. He states, “The most important thing is to do and make. The least important thing is to get an agent, to be in the news, or to tweet about what you’re doing. Know that the only path to success is through some failure. No one thing defines you, and the most important thing is to roll up your sleeves and, no matter what, carry on with your work. Or, as my friend Anna Wintour loves to quote Karl Lagerfeld as saying, ‘On to the next.’”

And with that, Cutler is off to the whirlwind life of production, moving the slate forward by answering calls, making calls, working in the writers’ room, and squeezing in interviews in between, hopefully making it home in time to put his 2-year-old daughter to bed.

Nicole Torres is an attorney, actor, and writer living in Los Angeles.
