Timothy Hutton has just joined the TNT drama Leverage. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Dean Devlin is writing and directing the pilot episode.
Hutton will star as Nate Ford, an investigator for big insurance companies whose life spirals out of control after his son dies. When the companies he works for refuse to pay for his son's medical treatments, Ford teams up with the world's best thieves and computer fraud experts to go after the rich and greedy people he once trusted.
The pilot does not have a set start date at this time. It will most likely start in early 2008.
