Jim and Tim Hutton

I’m back after a long hiatus from blogging on Ramblings. I have missed telling you all my wonderful nuggets of useless information and besides my family doesn’t want to hear it so I have to find an outlet somewhere. Last night I was watching the movie “The Last Mimzy” a movie that I need to devote an entire blog to because it wasn’t exactly what I thought it was. Anyway I was watching the movie and noticed the Dad was played by the same actor who was in the TV series “Leverage”. I liked him in “Leverage” so I wanted a little more information on Tim Hutton. Well it turns out that Tim Hutton is the son of Jim Hutton. What’s that you don’t know who Jim Hutton is? He was an  actor in the the late 60’s early 70’s. I best remember him in the “Green Berets” acting along side of John Wayne. He was also in the movie “Hellfighters” another great John Wayne movie. He could play serious or comedic parts. Unfortunately Jim Hutton died of liver cancer at the young age of 45. But his son Tim took after his dad and became a actor. He started his career in the movie “Friendly Fire” with Carol Burnett and Ned Beatty. But I know him from is “Leverage” a story about modern day robin-hoods.
