Tom Skerritt to Play Nate's Father on Leverage

at . Comments

Asked about season three of Leverage, star Timothy Hutton recently told TV Guide the show would be all about family.

Turns out, he didn't mean just that Nate and his team have grown close, adding:

"People from Nate's life show up. We're filming an episode now that has to do with where Nate comes from. We learn a lot about who Nate is by meeting someone who had a tremendous influence over him over him."

That someone is Nate's father, who will join the crew for a con this season. He'll be played by veteran actor Tom Skerritt.

Skerritt is an Emmy Award winner who most recently recurred on Brothers & Sisters. No word yet on when he'll show up on the TNT hit.

Season three of Leverage return on June 20 and you can watch a clip from its premiere NOW.
