Was asked to grow his beard for his role on Thirtysomething (1987), as producers thought that it would make Tim, who was still being cast as teenagers and young adults at the time, look closer to his age.
His first exposure to acting was through his father, Roger, who taught in the drama department at Michigan State University. His mother, Jean, was the director of the Michigan State University Press.
Landed his first professional acting job at age 22 with The Green Mountain Guild's Theatre for Children.
Studied drama at East Tennessee State University and Actor's Theatre of Louisville. After his apprenticeship at ATL Timothy joined the resident company alongside Chris Cooper, Kathy Bates, Ken Jenkins and the late Susan Kingsley.
In 1981, he moved to New York, N.Y., where he joined the Circle Repertory Company for their production of Lanford Wilson's "Talley and Son".
Following the demise of Trapper John, M.D. (1979), Tim joined forces with his brother, Buck, to create the Fantasy Theatre, a professional touring company for children's audiences-and, later, Honorary State Children's Theater for California-based in his new hometown of Sacramento.
Attended East Tennessee State University, in Johnson City, Tennessee. Has an Honorary PHD from Michigan State University.
Tim, who has been interested in standard-bred harness horse racing since the late 1980s, took the cast of Thirtysomething (1987) with him to Los Alamitos Ractrack in 1988 for a night of harness racing. Tim has owned several standard-bred horses, and he can be seen sometimes at the Golden Bear racetrack at Cal Expo in Sacramento, California, watching harness racing with his children.
