Meet Jude Ault from The Target List Movie

Jude Ault — Clyde

Tell us a bit more about you and your acting career: 

Well, I graduated from the University of Nevada, Reno, with a degree in theatre. I’ve acted all over Reno since I left high school, primarily in stage plays. I also write stage plays and comic scripts, the former of which was staged over a decade ago. This film would be the fifth time I’ve acted on camera and the second time with a substantive role.

When did you decide that you wanted to become an actor?

It was my Freshman year of high school in my Intro to Theatre class. I don’t really have much memory in terms of what specifically brought it about. But I do remember a growing sense of joy and love inside me the deeper I went into the theatre to the point that there was nowhere else I wanted to be than acting.

If you got to choose one movie and one character in it to portray, what would that be?

Daniel Miller in “Defending Your Life”

Did you have any formal training to become an actor?

A Bachelor’s degree in theatre from the University of Nevada, Reno. Other than that, mostly learning through performance.

What actor/actress has inspired you the most?

Paul Giamatti.

Tell us about your character in The Target List:

Clyde is the head scientist and inventor of the WAND project, making sure it operates as well as stated in public. He’s naturally skeptical and questioning of anyone in power, which doesn’t make him the ideal candidate to be the face of something. He comes off as someone who doesn’t like people, though in truth, he’s just selective of those he chooses to welcome into his inner workings as a person.

Are people going to relate with the character and why (even if he/she is the villain)?

I’d like to hope so, at least to the introverts watching. There’s also a sense of just trying to do good with the hand you’re dealt with that some people could easily relate to.

Do you share anything with this character?

Some bits in terms of the feels with other people.

Which three adjectives would you use to describe The Target List to a potential audience?

Intriguing, pulse-pounding, unpredictable

How would you describe your experience working on The Target List?

Thorough and very professional, with nice light moments in between. It was the first time that I left a role that I very much wanted to come back to and explore a little more if the chance arose.
