TI­MOTHY HUT­TON

The Fresno Bee (Sunday) - - On Tv - BY JAY BOBBIN

Ti­mothy Tar­quin Hut­ton was born on Aug. 16, 1960, in Mal­ibu, Calif. He is the youngest of the two chil­dren of ac­tor Jim Hut­ton and teacher Mary­line Adams, who di­vorced when Ti­mothy was 3. His mother then moved the young­sters to Bos­ton and then Con­necti­cut, ul­ti­mately re­turn­ing to Cal­i­for­nia, where Ti­mothy re­con­nected with his fa­ther and lived with him.

A high-school role in “Guys and Dolls” set the young Hut­ton on his own act­ing path. Ini­tially, he ap­peared in such TV movies as “Friendly Fire” and “Young Love, First Love.” Then, his fea­ture-film cred­its be­gan with the Robert Red­ford-di­rected “Or­di­nary Peo­ple,” for which Hut­ton be­came the youngest win­ner of the Os­car for best sup­port­ing ac­tor as trou­bled Con­rad Jar­rett.

Movies that Hut­ton made dur­ing the 1980s in­cluded “Taps,” “The Fal­con and the Snow­man,” “Ice­man,” “Turk 182,” “Made in Heaven” and “Every­body’s All-Amer­i­can.” He moved into stage work with “Love Let­ters” and “Pre­lude to a Kiss,” but he would re­turn to movies with such projects as “The Dark Half,” “French Kiss,” “Beau­ti­ful Girls” and “The Gen­eral’s Daugh­ter.”

Se­ries tele­vi­sion work has been a big fac­tor in Hut­ton’s ca­reer. He co-starred in a “Nero Wolfe” se­ries for A&E Net­work on which he also was an ex­ec­u­tive pro­ducer and a di­rec­tor, and he later be­came a lead as the rich fa­ther of an ab­ducted teen in NBC’s “Kid­napped.” The TNT crime-ca­per show “Lever­age” gave Hut­ton a five-sea­son run, and af­ter that, he earned ac­claim for play­ing a dif­fer­ent char­ac­ter in each of the three sea­sons of the ABC an­thol­ogy “Amer­i­can Crime.”

Hut­ton now is star­ring in the new Fox drama se­ries “Al­most Fam­ily” as a fer­til­ity doc­tor en­gulfed in scan­dal with the reve­la­tion that his own sperm were used to sire nearly 100 chil­dren, sev­eral of whom are get­ting to know one an­other some­what un­com­fort­ably.

First mar­ried to ac­tress Debra Winger, with whom he has a son, Hut­ton dated Uma Thur­man and An­gelina Jolie af­ter that union ended. He then mar­ried former French pres­i­dent Valery Gis­card d’Es­taing’s niece Aurore and also had a son with her, but the cou­ple sep­a­rated in 2009.
