For Oscar-winning actor Timothy Hutton, agreeing to star in TNT's Leverage wasn't a tough decision — at least not after he read the script.

Olin — or Joey O., as he's known to his former co-workers in Major Crimes — seems more intent on wrapping up an old case of his own than helping Brenda close hers. Ghosts of Those Who Got Away haunt the hallways of Parker Center and, as Deputy Chief Johnson's obsession with the elusive rapist/murderer Phillip Stroh returns to cloud her judgment, she finds some uncomfortable and eerie parallels between herself and the annoying, (but dogged) Joey O.

Though the word "elysium" came to represent the halcyon rest for the honorable dead, its original meaning was ... read more
