Subsequently, he enrolled at the British American Drama Academy in London, UK, and upon finishing his studies, Hornsby transferred to New York City where he began his theatrical career in the role of Atticus Finch in an off-Broadway stage play “To Kill a Mockingbird”. This engagement was followed by several other appearances in stage plays such as “Six Degrees of Separation”, and “Joe Louis Blues”.

However, the real breakthrough in Hornsby’s career occurred in 2007, when he was cast for the leading role of Eddie Sutton in the “Lincoln Heights” TV series which he portrayed through its four seasons ’til 2009. This engagement was followed by another memorable role, that of Luke in the TV drama series “In Treatment”, followed in 2011 when he began starring in the popular NBC TV fantasy series “Grimm”, as Hank Griffin.
