Hutton joins his fellow cast members Felicity Huffman, Regina King and Richard Cabral, who were all previously confirmed to return to Season 3. All four actors starred in the first two seasons of the critically-acclaimed ABC anthology.
The upcoming season of John Ridley’s drama will be set in North Carolina and will deal with labor issues. While most details are scarce at this point, executive producer Michael McDonald teased a bit of Hutton’s character description, revealing that he will play a wealthy man.
“John and I are thrilled to have Tim return to season 3,” said McDonald. “We believe that Tim’s undeniable talent will be showcased in a role unlike anything we have ever seen from Tim. He will shock the audience in a darker twisted turn as a wealthy man struggling to keep his family and fortune.”
Aside from Hutton’s description, no other details — including other characters or storylines — have been revealed at this point. All returning actors will be back in all-new roles.
For the first season of “American Crime,” Hutton was nominated for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Miniseries or Movie at the Emmys. For this year’s Emmys, the series was nominated for Outstanding Limited Series, plus Huffman, King and Lili Taylor were all nominated in the acting categories.
Hutton is repped by WME, Untitled and Jackoway Tyerman.
