Timothy Hutton Family
Timothy Hutton Father | Timothy Hutton Son Died | Timothy Hutton Dad
His father was actor Jim Hutton. He was separated from his father at the age of three but he later sought out his father and moved in with him in Los Angeles back in 1976. He was 16 years old at this time. At Fairfax High School, while playing Nathan Detroit in a school production of Guys and Dolls, he realized he wanted to become an actor. With encouragement from both of his parents, he carefully built himself a career in television.

Timothy Hutton Young | Timothy Hutton Parents
Born to Jim Hutton, his father and Maryline Adams, his mother, his parents divorced when Hutton was three years old, and his mother took him and his older sister, Heidi, who was born in 1959, with her to Boston. The family returned to California when Hutton was 12.
“A lot of people think that because my father was an actor, I come from this big show-business background,” Hutton told Bruce Cook of American Film magazine in 1981. “But that’s not how I grew up at all. My mother took us to Cambridge because she wanted to get her M.A. She wound up teaching in Connecticut, but the way she saw it, after a while, if we all stayed there, my sister and I would just wind up as the proprietors of the local drugstore or something, so that was why she took us to Berkeley – to get us into the world, I guess. Now she’s given up teaching and she’s into printing miniature books.”

In 1996, he starred in the popular ensemble film, Beautiful Girls, playing opposite 14-year-old Natalie Portman in one of her early standout film roles.
Moving on to television, he starred as Nero Wolfe’s assistant and leg-man Archie Goodwin in the A&E television series A Nero Wolfe Mystery (2001–2002); he also served as an executive producer, and also directed several episodes of the series.
