Hutton starred in NBC's "Kidnapped" last season and has several movie projects due for release in the next year, including the John Krasinski-directed "Brief Interviews with Hideous Men." His film credits also include "Ordinary People" (for which he won an Oscar), "Beautiful Girls" and "The Good Shepherd."
TNT has found a star for its pilot "Leverage," signing "Kidnapped" star Timothy Hutton for the the Robin Hood-esque drama.
"Leverage" comes from writer-director Dean Devlin ("The Triangle," "Independence Day"), who's executive producing with "Transformers" scribe John Rogers. It centers on Hutton's character, a one-time insurance investigator whose son died after the companies he used to work for denied the boy treatment. He now crusades for the people fighting those moneyed interests, using not-quite-legal means when necessary.
