#Fact
1His acting mentor when he was very young was Marsha Hunt.
2In 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.
3Both he and brother Joseph served as replacements on Broadway in the role of Ken Tally in "Fifth of July" in the early 1980s.
4Has 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).
5Brother of Sam Bottoms, Ben Bottoms and Joseph Bottoms.
