Doug Anthony Hutchison (born May 26, 1960) is an American actor, known for playing disturbing and antagonistic characters, including Obie Jameson in the feature film The Chocolate War, Sproles in the film Fresh Horses (both released in 1988), and as the sadistic corrections officer Percy Wetmore in the 1999 film adaptation of Stephen King's The Green Mile. He has a production company, Dark Water Inc.
In 2011, Hutchison received widespread criticism when he married singer Courtney Stodden, who was 16 years old at the time.
Doug Anthony Hutchison was born May 26, 1960 in Dover, Delaware. He attended Apple Valley High School in Apple Valley, Minnesota and Bishop Foley High School in Madison Heights, Michigan. He later attended University of Minnesota at Minneapolis-St Paul, and studied at The Juilliard School in New York City.
He has made guest television appearances on such shows as The Young Riders, Eugene Victor Tooms in The X-Files, a recurring role as Elroy-El in Space: Above and Beyond, as "Omega" on Millennium, as Horace Goodspeed in Lost, as Sebastian Hulce on The Guiding Light, as serial killer Humphrey Becker in Law & Order: Special Victims Unit. He guest-starred as Davros, a European terrorist in 24.
Hutchison entered films at the end of the 1980s, appearing in two memorable 1988 roles, as Sproles in the drama Fresh Horses, and as Obie Jameson in the film adaptation of The Chocolate War. Of his performance in the former, one critic observed that Sproles "hoist[ed] [Horses] onto his shoulders for the duration of his scenes." In the 1990s he appeared in films such as The Lawnmower Man (1992), A Time to Kill (1996), Con Air (1997), and Batman & Robin (1997). He had supporting roles in the 2000 films Shaft and Bait, I Am Sam (2001), and 2002 films, The Salton Sea and No Good Deed.
His career declined in the 2000s, when he began receiving offers for short films and direct-to-video films, although he was cast as the brother of Billy Russoti, James "Looney Bin Jim" Russoti in the feature film Punisher: War Zone. He starred alongside Thomas Jane and Ving Rhames in Give 'em Hell, Malone, released in 2009. In October 2008, Hutchison's production company, Dark Water, debuted the web series Vampire Killers, which depicts four vampire hunters combating a vampire population of over 500,000 in modern Los Angeles.
Their relationship drew controversy and criticism, as Stodden was 16 years old when the couple married; Hutchison is 35 years her senior. Hutchison was labeled a "pedophile". According to the actor, his agent quit, his family disowned him, and he received death threats, all resulting from this marriage. Hutchison was, however, reportedly, defended by Stodden's mother, Krista Keller, who praised him for the kindness and love with which he treats Stodden as well as Dr. Jenn Berman, a therapist who worked with the couple during their appearance on Couples Therapy.
In October 2012, the couple appeared as one of the celebrity couples in the second season of the VH1 reality television series Couples Therapy, which depicts celebrity couples undergoing counseling for relationship problems. According to Stodden, the couple enrolled in therapy in order to resolve issues that arose in their marriage from their age difference. On November 1, 2013, the media reported that Stodden and Hutchison were ending their marriage of two and a half years and filing for divorce. In a subsequent interview, Stodden said that the split and impending divorce from Hutchison was amicable.
