He left the series in 1991 to pursue an interest in directing. During his run on thirtysomething, People magazine named him one of the "50 Most Beautiful People". As an actor, Horton appeared in a number of television shows including St. Elsewhere, The White Shadow, Dallas, Eight Is Enough, The Geena Davis Show, and played the lead in the short-lived series Brimstone, and played Crane McFadden in the one season series (1982-1983) "Seven Brides for Seven Brothers". He also appeared in the 1997 TV movie version of the Jon Krakauer book Into Thin Air, playing Scott Fischer, the leader of the disastrous 1996 climb on Mount Everest.

To date, he has only directed one feature film, 1995`s The Cure. He appeared in Who Killed the Electric Car? and is on the board of directors of the Environmental Alliance. He can also be sighted in a very old Coca-Cola commercial from the late 1980`s where he`s seen walking through numerous areas around a city drinking one while coincidentally passing by a mysterious woman every place he goes who turns out to be his daughter`s ballet teacher, whom he sees one last time when arriving to pick his daughter up from ballet practice surprising her with a Coca-Cola of her own at the end. He is currently appearing on the HBO series "In Treatment" as the father of Sophie.
