BRAINS: Timothy Hutton as NATE FORD

NATHAN FORD

Insurance investigator. Good-looking and still sharp, despite the layers of insomnia and hangover damage he’s accumulating as fast as he can. Nate was an expert at recovering stolen items… until the insurance company he worked for (I.Y.S.) refused to pay for his 8-year-old son Sam’s “experimental” treatment. When his son died a couple of years ago, Nate went on the skids. In the pilot, Dubenich hires him as the one honest man to keep a group of thieves in check. Now, Nate leads the team to right injustices, funded by their unique take on “alternate revenue stream”. He has a long catch-and- release history with Sophie, who is the only team member he selected himself.
