Sharing the same birth place as Marvel Character Wolverine, Jesse James Hutch was born in Alberta Canada. At the age of ten he watched his first film, the animated movie "The Hobbit," and was instantly hooked on the art of storytelling. Throughout high school Hutch was known as "Hardcore" Hutch, because of his outdoor adrenaline hobbies which included white water rafting, white water kayaking, free climbing and mountain biking.
Often times these hobbies were recorded on video and turned into short movies. At one point in Hutch's high school History class he acted and played out a hostage take over scenario for a presentation. The teacher was apprehended, smoke grenades went off, paintball guns were used and the fire alarm went off. His marks for presentation were high, minus a few points because of the fire department being called.
A collector of movie posters, some would say Hutch was an actor even as a young boy, It was in 2001 that the title of "thespian" became a professional one.
Hutch’s first official audition led to a role as a mutant in “Dark Angel” for FOX. After his second audition, he was offered a role in the CBS series “Wolf Lake,” which he ultimately passed on due to a filming conflict with “Dark Angel.” Hutch has since landed leading roles in several television movies including a romantic comedy teacher in “My Boyfriends’ Dogs” with Erika Christensen and a hard working man’s man in “Let it Snow” with Candace Cameron Bure, both for Hallmark Channel, a Navy Seal in “True Justice” for Reelz and a college hunk in “About a Girl” for N Network. Hutch also starred in the feature film “Joy Ride 3” as a race car driver for 20th Century Fox.
Roles on TV series such as “Almost Human,” Once Upon A Time,” “American Dreams,” “Smallville,” “Kyle XY” & “Heartland” are but a few of Hutch's recognizable credits alongside feature films such as “The Butterfly Effect,” “Freddy vs Jason,” and “Scary Movie 3.”
Performing almost all of his own stunts to date, Hutch has always had an attraction to action and adrenaline. Kick boxing & Muay Thai are some of his past training. Having a unique humor and calmness is perhaps a major part of what keeps Hutch successful in one of the most competitive industries in the world. Being in the running for lead roles in films and television such as “Superman,” “Texas Chainsaw Massacre,” “X-Men,” “Jumper,” “The Lottery,” “When Calls the Heart” and “Revenge” while being compared to other actors such as Tom Cruise, Ben Affleck and Patrick Dempsey has become a regular part of the Hutch career, his unique acting style and variation continues to keep people guessing. Jesse Hutch's most important lead roles are: Husband, Father, Son, Brother & Wild Man.
