Stars: Timothy Hutton, Gina Bellman, Aldis Hodge, Christian Kane, Beth Riesgraf, Mitch Pileggi, Bhanna Peget Writer: Jenn Kao, series created by John Rogers & Chris Downey Director: John Harrison Network: TNT, Sundays @ 9 PM Airdate: July 24, 2011 LEVERAGE’s “The Hot Potato Job” is decent enough – it literally involves a stolen (i.e., hot) potato, so points up front for a good title, as well as smart casting in employing Mitch Pileggi as the big bad of the week. However, given that this is the episode where team leader Nathan (Timothy Hutton) and longtime unconsummated/then consummated-but-pretending-it’s-no-big-deal love interest Sophie […]Read On »

            Stars: Timothy Hutton, Gina Bellman, Aldis Hodge, Christian Kane, Beth Riesgraf, Danny Glover Writer: Chris Downey, series created by John Rogers & Chris Downey Director: John Rogers Network: TNT, Sundays @ 9 PM Airdate: July 17, 2011 LEVERAGE has employed flashbacks and allowed the regular cast members to play different sorts of characters (as part of running their scams), but it does both of these things in a new way in “The Van Gogh Job.” Series creators John Rogers & Chris Downey have gotten together to make an episode, with Rogers directing and Downey […]Read On »

TV Review: LEVERAGE – Season 4 – “The 15 Minutes Job”

Stars: Timothy Hutton, Gina Bellman, Aldis Hodge, Christian Kane, Beth Riesgraf, Michael Gladis, Leon Rippy Writer: Josh Schaer Director: Marc Roskin Network: TNT, Sundays @ 9 PM Airdate: July 10, 2011 The title of LEVERAGE’s episode “The 15 Minutes Job” refers to Andy Warhol’s oft-quoted saying about the amount of time everybody supposedly will have to be famous. The plot concerns a neat reversal, where instead of going after famous bigwigs abusing their power, Nate (Timothy Hutton) and friends find themselves going up against a foe who is pretty similar to the LEVERAGE team in his methods. Nate is approached […]Read On »

While accepting Dr. Donald A. Reed Award at the 37th Annual Saturn Awards presented to him by longtime collaborator Roland Emmerich, writer-director-producer Dean Devlin spoke with ASSIGNMENT X about  the fourth season of LEVERAGE (airing Sunday nights on TNT) and what to expect this summer. ASSIGNMENT X: “The 10 L’il Grifters Job” is such a great concept for a LEVERAGE episode … especially with the nod to Timothy Hutton’s dad Jim Hutton who played Ellery Queen [in the 1975 TV series of the same name]. DEAN DEVLIN: Everyone in that episode got to dress up as their favorite detective, so […]Read On »

TV Review: LEVERAGE – Season 4 – “The 10 Li’l Grifters Job”

Stars: Timothy Hutton, Gina Bellman, Aldis Hodge, Christian Kane, Beth Riesgraf, William Russ Writers: Geoffrey Thorne Director: Arvin Brown Network: TNT, Sundays @ 9 PM Airdate: July 3, 2011 The LEVERAGE episode “The 10 Li’l Grifters Job” feels like it wanted to be a telefilm. It certainly has all the elements – an Agatha Christie set-up, schemes within schemes and Nate (Timothy Hutton) having a whole new worry about what his friends think of him. However, in a one-hour time slot (with plenty of commercials), there simply isn’t time to do justice to what’s here. In “Grifters,” Nate and the […]Read On »

When we last left Nate Ford (Timothy Hutton) and grifter Sophie Devereaux (Gina Bellman) on the Season 3 finale of LEVERAGE, they were in bed together after consummating their long-gestating attraction/affection toward one another. Moving into Season 4, that one little night will play a big role according to Hutton who plays the enigmatic and troubled Ford – a leader of a group of high-tech thieves who help innocent bystanders from being pummeled and robbed by big corporations and greedy individuals. It’s a formula that’s worked well for the TNT series (which airs its season premiere on Sunday night) which […]Read On »
