"Leverage" Christian Kane
Thrills, cons and the pursuit of justice are back as TNT’s fast-paced drama series Leverage returns this summer. Academy Award® winner Timothy Hutton (Ordinary People) stars along with Gina Bellman (Coupling), Christian Kane (TNT’s Into the West), Beth Riesgraf (Alvin and the Chipmunks) and Aldis Hodge (Friday Night Lights). The five-member team of thieves, grifters and con artists return to settle more scores against those who use power and wealth to victimize others.
In Leverage, Hutton stars as Nate Ford, a former insurance investigator determined to bring down the kind of corrupt bigwigs whose neglect led to the death of his son. His highly skilled team includes Sophie Devereaux (Bellman), a grifter who uses her acting skills to corner her marks; Eliot Spencer (Kane), a “retrieval specialist” with bone-crunching fighting skills; Alec Hardison (Hodge), a gadget and technology wizard who keeps the team connected and informed; and Parker (Riesgraf), a slightly off-center thief adept at rappelling off buildings or squeezing into tight places.
Christian Kane joined us to talk about his character on Leverage and to share his other passion, singing. Christian is a talented singer/songwriter with an album coming out this fall.
Leverage airs Wednesday nights at 9 pm on TNT.
