Timothy Hutton (born August 16, 1960) is an American actor.
The son of actor Jim Hutton, he was born in Malibu, California. He won an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor in 1980 for Ordinary People.

Hutton played detective Archie Goodwin in the TV series Nero Wolfe (2001-2002), of which he was also executive producer, and has acted in TV miniseries such as WW3 (2001). He has also tried his hand at directing, with the family film Digging To China (1998).
Hutton has been married twice. His first marriage was to actress Debra Winger (1986-90), which produced a son, Noah.
In 2000, he married his current wife, Aurore, who is the niece of former French president ValĂ©ry Giscard d'Estaing. They have a son, Milo.
