Just in time for the special holiday episode of the hit TV show LEVERAGE I get to sit in on two exclusive press conferences with some of the stars of the show. One of the conference calls was with Timothy Hutton who plays Nathan Ford the Mastermind of the LEVERAGE Crew. A former Insurance Adjuster who has bested many thieves and crooks over the years joined forces with four such criminals to right the wrongs and get the job done when no one else can do it. Think A-Team without all the military training and much better looking people. Also, not as cheesy. Continue reading I Got to Interview the Stars of LEVERAGE
Allison and I have been completely faithful fans. We made sure that we watched the show in real time and we were even known to tweet about it as it played. This season we are still big fans of the show and are saving the shows on the DVR for a LEVERAGE Marathon on a night when we have nothing planned.
When LEVERAGE came out on TV I was so excited, I loved the show even before I watched the first episode. Then when I watched it I just loved the characters and how they played off of each other. I love the reveal of the con each episode too. So I was able to become part of the Turner Influencer Network and through that I can offer you some great prizes, Like say Season 1 & 2 of LEVERAGE on DVD plus copies of the book “The Modern Con Man”.
If you don’t know what the Show LEVERAGE is all about here is the description of Season 3.
For the past two seasons of LEVERAGE
LEVERAGE follows the adventures of a highly skilled team out to settle scores against those who use power and wealth to victimize others. The gang is led by former insurance investigator Nate Ford (Hutton), who got involved in the con business after his former employer refused to pay for treatment that could have saved his son’s life. 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 informed; and Parker (Riesgraf), a slightly off-center thief adept at rappelling off buildings or squeezing into tight places.
By the end of the second season, the LEVERAGE team had scammed a hedge-fund manager who happened to be in the custody of U.S. Marshals; used Eliot’s martial arts skills to corner a corrupt fight promoter; and took over a private school to recover millions of dollars lost in a Ponzi scheme. They also went head-to-head with an almost identical team of grifters to recover a painting, took down an oppressive sweatshop owner, cornered a fake psychic, freed Nate’s ex-wife from a Ukrainian jail and thwarted a gunrunning scheme by a corrupt mayor.
But for Sophie, her conflicted relationship with Nate left her questioning if she wanted to continue working with the team. She took some much-needed time away, arranging for a friend and fellow grifter to take her place temporarily. But even though Sophie has now returned to the team, there are still some unresolved issues between her and Nate.
The third season of LEVERAGE opens with Nate in prison after having to make a tough choice on the most recent con. He could either allow his team to be arrested or simply give himself up to his nemesis Sterling, a former insurance investigator now working for Interpol. Nate soon discovers, however, that the prison is corrupt. The only way he can bring the crooked officials down is to get his team to help him stage his jailbreak.
But that’s only the beginning of Nate’s challenges. He must also contend with a shadowy intelligence agent known only as “The Italian,” played by actress and model Elisabetta Canalis, who blackmails him into helping bring down a financier. Between “The Italian” trying to control Nate and Nate trying to hold both his crew and his personal life together, it’s looking to be a challenging and twisted summer for the LEVERAGE team.
