Timothy Hutton Family

Timothy Hutton Father | Timothy Hutton Son Died | Timothy Hutton Dad

His father was actor Jim Hutton. He was separated from his father at the age of three but he later sought out his father and moved in with him in Los Angeles back in 1976. He was 16 years old at this time. At Fairfax High School, while playing Nathan Detroit in a school production of Guys and Dolls, he realized he wanted to become an actor. With encouragement from both of his parents, he carefully built himself a career in television.

His father died on 2 June 1979 in Los Angeles from liver cancer. This was two days after his 45th birthday. In 1981, Hutton dedicated his Academy Award, which he had won for his role in the movie Ordinary People, to his father.

Timothy Hutton Young | Timothy Hutton Parents

Born to Jim Hutton, his father and Maryline Adams, his mother, his parents divorced when Hutton was three years old, and his mother took him and his older sister, Heidi, who was born in 1959, with her to Boston. The family returned to California when Hutton was 12.

“A lot of people think that because my father was an actor, I come from this big show-business background,” Hutton told Bruce Cook of American Film magazine in 1981. “But that’s not how I grew up at all. My mother took us to Cambridge because she wanted to get her M.A. She wound up teaching in Connecticut, but the way she saw it, after a while, if we all stayed there, my sister and I would just wind up as the proprietors of the local drugstore or something, so that was why she took us to Berkeley – to get us into the world, I guess. Now she’s given up teaching and she’s into printing miniature books.”

In 1976 when he was 16, Hutton sought out his father and moved in with him in Los Angeles. At Fairfax High School, while playing Nathan Detroit in a school production of Guys and Dolls, he realized he wanted to become an actor. With encouragement from both of his parents, he carefully built himself a career in television.

On June 2, 1979, Jim Hutton died in Los Angeles from liver cancer, two days after his 45th birthday. In 1981, Hutton dedicated his Academy Award, which he had won for his role in the movie Ordinary People, to his father.

Actor Timothy Hutton

Timothy Hutton’s career began with parts in several television movies, most notably the 1979 ABC TV film Friendly Fire. That year, he also played the son of Donna Reed in the Ross Hunter NBC television film, The Best Place to Be. He then made two CBS made-for-TV films in 1980: Young Love, First Love with Valerie Bertinelli, and Father Figure with Hal Linden.

For his first feature film performance, as Conrad Jarrett in Ordinary People (1980), Hutton won both the Academy Award and the Golden Globe for Best Supporting Actor. His performance also earned him the Golden Globe Award for New Star of the Year in a Motion Picture – Male. Immediately following his success, he starred in the acclaimed 1981 ABC television film A Long Way Home co-starring Brenda Vaccaro.

Hutton’s next feature film, Taps (with George C. Scott, Sean Penn, and Tom Cruise), was popular with critics and audiences, but during the next several years, his motion pictures, such as Iceman, Daniel, Turk 182, Made in Heaven, and Q&A, struggled at the box office. His only substantial hit was 1985’s The Falcon and the Snowman which teamed him again with Sean Penn.

In 1984 he directed the music video for The Cars song “Drive”. In 1989, he made his Broadway stage debut opposite his Ordinary People co-star Elizabeth McGovern in the A.R. Gurney play Love Letters. He followed this with another Broadway role in the Craig Lucas hit comedy, Prelude to a Kiss, which also starred Mary-Louise Parker and Barnard Hughes.
