#Fact
1 His acting mentor when he was very young was Marsha Hunt.
2 In a documentary that focused on the making of "The Last Picture Show," Timothy revealed that he had a crush on his co-star Cybill Shepherd during the filming, but that she didn't reciprocate his feelings.
3 Both he and brother Joseph served as replacements on Broadway in the role of Ken Tally in "Fifth of July" in the early 1980s.
4 Has thus-far (2003) done three highly-memorable performances as George W. Bush: the short-lived TV series That's My Bush! (2001); a cameo in The Crocodile Hunter: Collision Course (2002); and in the made-for-cable movie DC 9/11: Time of Crisis (2003).
5 Brother of Sam Bottoms, Ben Bottoms and Joseph Bottoms.
