Biography CLOSE THE FULL BIOGRAPHY

Doug Hutchison's intrinsic ability to take on quirky characters and onscreen antagonists made him one of the most in-demand character actors of his time. Hutchison kept the audience on its toes every time he stepped foot in front of the camera, especially when the role required him to dig deep into mankind's darkest capacities. Throughout his career, Hutchison played a racist guilty of raping a young girl in "A Time to Kill" (1996), a vicious prison guard in "The Green Mile" (1999), and a hired assassin on "24" (Fox, 2001-2010). The actor won a legion of sci-fi fans with recurring appearances on drama serials with cult-like followings, most notably with his turn as the serial killer Tooms on "The X-Files" (Fox, 1993-2002) and as a 1970s scientist on "Lost" (ABC, 2004-2010). In 2011, Hutchison landed in hot water after announcing his marriage to a 16-year-old singer who was 35 years his junior. Their strange union dominated tabloid headlines for weeks and was reportedly permitted by the girl's mother, yet there was no doubt that the highly debated May-December romance had eclipsed Hutchison's hard-earned prolific acting portfolio.

Notes

There is a web site devoted to Hutchison at www.doughutchison.com

Outside of Ray Bradbury, Robert Heinlein, and Stephen King books, I'm not a huge sci-fi/horror fan," Hutchison says, though many of his roles have fallen into the genre. "I like sci-fi and horror, a la Invasion of the Body Snatchers and Night of the Living Dead, but I'm no Trekkie or X-Phile." --From "The 11th Hour", www.11thhour.com, September 1999
