Timothy Hutton teases new 'Leverage'
The actor told Collider that the conman's past will be explored in both the third season finale and the upcoming Christmas special.
"There's quite a bit about Nate Ford and his past that we don't know about, and I think the writers are going to bring that forward," he suggested. "I think that a lot is revealed in the two-part finale, as well as the Christmas show. It's a nice surprise, at the very end."
Hutton confirmed that the show will continue to delve into Nate's personal life in the recently commissioned fourth season.
"In season four, I think there's going to be a continuation of what we've already seen," he hinted. "A lot of people come out of the woodwork, looking for Nate and wanting to settle the score."
He continued: "[Nate has] definitely got a lot of issues, and we haven't seen the end of his problems. I think there’s going to be more to come."
Leverage returns to TNT on December 12.
