In Leverage, Christian plays Eliot Spencer, the quiet, but deadly, muscle of a team of “Robin Hood-like” thieves, lead by Nathan Ford (Timothy Hutton), a good guy jaded by the death of his child.
Each member of the team has their own unique talent. Alec Hardison (Aldis Hodge) is the team’s computer expert. Parker (Beth Riesgraf) is a talented, extremely independent, quirky and slightly unstable thief.
The group gets together when they are hired to steal back cutting edge airplane designs. During the mission, they find themselves double-crossed and almost killed. To help them get even, Nathan adds an old friend and former nemesis, Sophie Devereaux (Gina Bellman) to the team. Sophie is an effective grifter with aspirations to stage acting.
Each team member, as a habit, worked alone, but they now realize how much more effective they can be as a team. With Nathan picking the jobs, they help even the score for the little guy against the powerful and corrupt, while still managing to make a little profit for themselves. Together, they can provide “leverage”. Leverage premiered, commercial free, Sunday 12/7 at 10pm and can be seen at it’s regular time on Tuesdays at 10pm on TNT.
