Timothy Hutton, Leverage
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.
"It was a real opportunity to play a person who had these awful things happen involving his son and the destruction of his marriage — someone who needed a real breakthrough in their life," Hutton says. "I wondered how this tragedy would manifest itself in him and the choices he would make."
Look back at Hutton's most memorable roles
Hutton plays Nate Ford, the leader of a crack team of cons who use their skills to take from the rich and powerful and give back to those they've wronged. But despite Nate's noble intentions, he hasn't always made the best choices. Case in point: When Season 3 begins (Sunday at 9/8c), Nate is in jail...

Wondering if you can elaborate on Danny and Lindsay's predicament in the season finale of CSI: NY? — Christina
ADAM: It doesn't look good. We know Shane Casey tracks down Danny and Lindsay while they're on vacation, and since he's Shane Casey, you can expect some serious peril. But just who is in danger? "[The finale] really leaves you in a position to wonder whose life is at stake...

Edwin and Aldis Hodge
Leverage is becoming a family affair.
Edwin Hodge, the older brother of series regular Aldis Hodge, will guest-star in the TNT drama's upcoming third season premiere, TVGuide.com has learned exclusively.
Edwin plays an accountant who is sent to prison on a minor traffic offense. While in The Big House, he is wrongly accused of another inmate's murder. Luckily, he crosses paths with newly incarcerated Nate (Timothy Hutton), who rallies the team to assist.
"I just felt it was a great opportunity to share the screen with my brother and show the difference in our talents," Edwin tells TVGuide.com. "As siblings in the entertainment business, it's always a great experience, and one I think all siblings should share."
Edwin, who starred in Boston Public and most in recently Fox's Mental, has also appeared on Bones, Heroes, and Ghost Whisperer . He'll also appear on the big screen this summer in the remake of Red Dawn.
Although the brothers don't interact directly...

I need to know more about Delko's undercover investigation of the lab on CSI: Miami. What's he going to find? — Marshall
ADAM: "That investigation will reveal the most dramatic betrayal in Horatio Caine's career," co-executive producer Barry O'Brien tells us. "It puts Horatio in a light we've never seen him in before, questioning the loyalties of his team. ... It will rock the fabric of the team and threaten at least one — if not more — CSI's future." Hmm, maybe that's the reason Delko will be back full-time next season.
Will Dixon and Silver ever get back together on 90210? — Dana

Some of the Winter Olympics' most recognizable names are in action, with live coverage of some top-notch events. Making his first-and-only appearance in competition is the ballyhooed Shaun White in snowboarding's halfpipe. The "Flying Tomato" had spectators' jaws dropping with new tricks in events prior to the Games. Also anticipated is the women's downhill in Alpine skiing, with U.S. star Lindsey Vonn (if she returns from her shin injury), who dominated this event in the World Cup. "I try to ski like the guys," she says. "Dynamic, but also balanced." On the ice, world-record holder and defending gold medalist Shani Davis races in speed skating's 1,000-meter. His toughest foe may be 20-year-old teammate Trevor Marsicano, who beat him on this ice in the 2009 Worlds. "Instead of [him] thinking of me as a kid, and me being in awe of him: We now have a mutual respect," claims Marsicano. Apolo Anton Ohno, goes round and round in two short-track events, the 1,000-meter prelims and 5,000-meter relay semifinal.

Since this show's episode titles are named after Tom Petty songs, and this installment is called "When a Kid Goes Bad" (from Petty's 2002 album The Last DJ, for those keeping score), one thought comes to mind: poor, wayward Travis. Well, he doesn't kill anyone, but let's say his Jules and Bobby aren't too thrilled when he wants to go to a party where alcohol will be served. Meanwhile, Laurie meets Smith's father (Barry Bostwick), and it looks like the apple fell nowhere near the tree.
