Q&A with Timothy Hutton
TH: Well, he's got such a rich backstory. When I read first pilot script, I thought, "Well, this is a great character." It had a lot of potential. Nate didn't really have a lot to live for. He'd kind of hit rock bottom—lost his son, marriage fell apart, doesn't have a job—and, you know, he gets intrigued by the other side of the law and decides that he's going to help people because he can't really help himself. I thought it was a really good starting point for the character.
