Timothy Hutton / Conrad Cain
A mysterious millionaire with a past as opaque as the man himself.
Academy Award-winning actor Timothy Hutton stars as Conrad Cain, the father of teenaged Leopold Cain and a self-made millionaire with the appearance of a perfect life but a long list of enemies in NBC’s new drama "Kidnapped."
"Kidnapped" is a high-stakes serialized thriller in which the 15-year-old son of a wealthy Upper East Side family headed by Cain is kidnapped and everyone is a suspect. The series focuses on the elaborate, triangulated game between the kidnappers, FBI and law enforcement, and the private negotiating team contracted by this perhaps not-so-picture-perfect family.
After winning an Oscar, Golden Globe and Los Angeles Film Critics award for his performance in Robert Redford's "Ordinary People," Hutton went on to star in numerous other films, including "Taps" (which earned him his second Golden Globe Award nomination), "Daniel," "The Falcon and the Snowman," "Made In Heaven," "Q & A," "The General’s Daughter," "French Kiss," "Beautiful Girls," "Sunshine State" and "Kinsey." Hutton was also seen in "Secret Window," based on the novella by Stephen King and directed by David Koepp, and "Last Holiday," opposite Queen Latifah.
As a member of the Circle Repertory Company in New York, Hutton originated the lead role in the Broadway production of Craig Lucas' "Prelude to a Kiss" and starred in "Babylon Gardens" with Mary-Louise Parker. In addition, Hutton appeared in the Los Angeles stage production of "The Oldest Living Graduate," opposite Henry Fonda, which was later broadcast live on NBC. Hutton also directed Nicole Burdette's "Busted" for the New York-based theater company Naked Angels.
On television, Hutton produced and starred in Showtime's "Mr. & Mrs. Loving," starred as the title character in the acclaimed "Aldrich Ames: Traitor Within" (also for Showtime), and in the docudrama "WWIII." After starring in the highly successful movie "The Golden Spiders: A Nero Wolfe Mystery," Hutton agreed to executive-produce, direct and star in several additional Nero Wolfe adaptations. These highly acclaimed movies premiered in Spring 2001 and ran for two years, with a repertoire of actors, including Maury Chaykin.
Working behind the camera, Hutton has also directed a number of music videos, including "Drive" by the Cars, "Not Enough Love" by Don Henley, the Neil Young Concert Film "Freedom," as well as an episode of Steven Spielberg's "Amazing Stories," titled "Grandpa's Ghost," from a story Hutton wrote.
Hutton's feature-film directorial debut "Digging to China," premiered at the 1998 Sundance Film Festival to standing ovations. This offbeat coming-of-age story starred Kevin Bacon and Mary Stuart Masterson—and introduced 10-year old Evan Rachel Wood. The film was in limited release in Fall 1998.
