VANITY FAIR – This crop of young talents has a sense of history—with such heroes as James Dean, Julie Christie, and Audrey Hepburn—not to mention a penchant for books and vinyl. While echoing the styles of decades past, from Rat Pack cool to madcap flair, they divulge their guilty pleasures, karaoke picks, emoji habits, and much more, for a group portrait of Generation Now.

TV’s Favorite Con Artists Prepare to Steal Christmas and More In Five All-New Episodes of TNT’s “Leverage”
Winter Episodes Begin Tuesday, Nov. 27, at 10 p.m. (ET/PT)
For five years, television’s coolest gang of con artists have used their unique skills to help level the playing field for people whose lives have been destroyed by the rich and powerful. This winter, things are going to get personal as TNT’s hit series Leverage returns with five brand new episodes. Academy Award(R) winner Timothy Hutton stars in this clever and compelling drama, along with Gina Bellman, Christian Kane, Beth Riesgraf and Aldis Hodge. Leverage is set to begin its winter run Tuesday, Nov. 27, at 10 p.m. (ET/PT), following an all-new episode of Rizzoli & Isles.
Leverage focuses on a team of five top-notch specialists out to give everyday people a helping hand against the machinations of corrupt bigwigs. Leading the crew is mastermind Nate Ford (Hutton), a former insurance investigator whose son died when his employer refused to pay for life-saving surgery. Sophie Devereaux (Bellman) is the team’s resident grifter, a brilliant con artist who shares a long and complicated history with Nate – both professionally and romantically. Eliot Spencer (Kane) provides muscle as the team’s bone-crunching retrieval specialist with a passion for gourmet cooking and a soft spot for the underdog. Gadget and technology wizard Alec Hardison (Hodge) provides the team with everything from communications and video surveillance to target dossiers and virtual environments, rarely getting the credit he feels he deserves. And Parker (Riesgraf) is the team’s thief, a slightly off-center charmer who gets giddy at the thought of rappelling off a building or cracking an unbreakable safe.
With the rallying cry, “Let’s go steal a…,” Nate and his team set out each week to tackle corrupt executives, politicians and other big shots by taking something they hold dear. The team has since “stolen” everything from an airplane to a baseball stadium. They’ve even stolen a country. And this winter, they’re going to steal something they’ve never gone after before: a man’s dreams.
Winter will also pit the Leverage crew against the ruthless manager of a discount store whose tactics threaten not only her employees but also the town itself. They’ll target a corrupt winery owner whose workers are collapsing. And in a special holiday episode, the team will try to steal Christmas in order to prevent an unscrupulous toy company CEO from unleashing a dangerous product into the market. In addition, the team will once again face their nemesis, insurance-investigator-turned-InterPOL-agent Jim Sterling (guest star Mark Sheppard).
With each and every case they handle, Nate, Sophie, Elliott, Hardison and Parker prove themselves to be more than just a league of extraordinary con artists. They are a family. But in Leverage’s gripping season finale, the bond that holds this family together could be torn apart permanently with an extremely risky case involving the death of Nate’s son.
Since premiering in 2008, Leverage has been a solid hit, averaging more than 3.8 million viewers in its fifth season, with 1.4 million adults 18-49 and 1.7 million adults 25-54. Leverage is executive-produced by Dean Devlin (Independence Day, TNT’s The Librarian movie series) and creators John Rogers (Transformers) and Chris Downey (The King of Queens). The series is produced for TNT by Devlin’s Electric Entertainment.

Who’s hot on TV:
“Sofia Vergara. Face, figure, accent, talent…’nuff said.”
