Biography

Actor Timothy Hutton was only 19 years old when he earned an Academy Award for his very first feature film, Robert Redford's flinchingly resonant family drama "Ordinary People" (1980). His acclaimed performance set the stage for a string of follow-up dramas, where he lent a furrowed brow to intelligent and driven young adults whose idealism often led them to dark territory. However, after captivating performances in films like "Taps" (1981) and "The Falcon and the Snowman" (1984), Hutton failed to turn his brooding sensitivity into a steady career, and he compiled an eclectic film and television resume that validated him as a visceral performer but frequently failed to live up to the newcomer's initial box-office expectations. The actor began to regain a respected place in Hollywood in the new millennium, anchoring a number of decent cable drama series (as actor and director) and filling his schedule with interesting, character driven independent films and the occasional supporting role in select, smarter big budget dramas.

Bonus Trivia

.

In 1981, Hutton was the youngest performer to win an Oscar in the in the Best Supporting Actor category. He was 20 when he picked up the statuette for "Ordinary People."

.

About following his own gut in career choices: "I was 18, I did a couple of things on TV, then I did 'Ordinary People,' and when you are fortunate enough to be in a movie like that, working with Robert Redford as the director, and the movie is as well-received as it was, it would be ludicrous to have a master plan for a career. So next, I was in Wayne, PA. doing 'Taps.' And then I was back in New York working with Sidney Lumet, doing an ensemble movie called 'Daniel.' And I turned down a starring role in 'Risky Business,' even though all my agents and manager said I was crazy. But I looked at it and asked myself, what was the experience going to be like? What will I learn? And looking back at myself at 23, being able to work with Sidney Lumet and E. L. Doctorow, I have absolutely no regrets. I learned stuff that will stay with me forever." - Timothy Hutton to the Daily News, Sept. 13, 1998
