Hutchison was born 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.
Hutchison starred in a Minneapolis production of Equus. His other early stage credits include Sing Me Through an Open Window and Shakespeare's Julius Caesar. He has made guest appearances on television shows such as The Young Riders, The X-Files (as Eugene Victor Tooms), Space: Above and Beyond (as Elroy-El), Millennium (as "Omega"), Lost (as Horace Goodspeed), The Guiding Light (as Sebastian Hulce), Law & Order: Special Victims Unit (as serial killer Humphrey Becker), and 24 (as European terrorist Davros).
Hutchison entered films at the end of the 1980s, appearing as Sproles in the 1988 drama Fresh Horses and Obie Jameson in the 1988 film adaptation of The Chocolate War. Of his performance in Fresh Horses, one critic observed that he "hoisted the film onto his shoulders for the duration of his scenes". In the 1990s, he appeared in films such as The Green Mile as Percy, The Lawnmower Man (1992), A Time to Kill (1996), Con Air (1997), and Batman & Robin (1997). He had supporting roles in Shaft (2000), Bait (2000), I Am Sam (2001), The Salton Sea (2002), and No Good Deed (2002).
Hutchison's career declined in the 2000s when he began receiving offers for short films and direct-to-video films, although he was cast as James "Looney Bin Jim" Russoti (brother of Billy Russoti) in the film Punisher: War Zone. He starred in Give 'em Hell, Malone (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 Los Angeles.
On May 20, 2011, Hutchison married his third wife, Courtney Stodden, in Las Vegas. They met when Stodden attended an acting class taught by Hutchison.
Their relationship drew controversy and criticism, as Stodden was 16 years old when the couple married; Hutchison is 34 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, however, was defended by Stodden's mother, Krista Keller, who praised him for the kindness and love with which he treated 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 from Hutchison was amicable. The couple reconciled by August 2014.
