American actor, the eldest of four acting brothers. He was the juvenile lead and rising star of the early '70s following impressive TV credits. His films included "Johnny Got His Gun," 1971 "The Last Picture Show" and "The Paper Chase," 1973.
The eldest son of a sculptor and a homemaker, he was followed by Joseph in 1954, Sam in 1956 and Ben in 1961.
Timothy married Alicia Cory in 1975 and had a son, Bartholomew; they divorced in 1978. His second wife is artist Marcia Morehart, 46 (2001). They married in 1984 and had three kids in the following six years, Bodie, Bridget and Benton.
In 1987, the four brother were brought together for ABC's "Island Sons," which made a debut on 5/15/1987, casting the four together for the first time in their careers. The tension onscreen was not all acting. Tim and Joe had a cool relationship except when it ignited to a quick heat; they usually did not see each other unless it was work related. During an interview prior to the show's release, the ongoing fight between the two escalated into a brawl.
In 1974, Timothy bought a 340-acre ranch in Big Sur, CA. Increasingly reclusive, he spent more time in drug use than acting and his career waned. With the help of a Jesuit friend, he got clean in 1979 but his attempt at a comeback on Broadway "Fourth of July" fizzled.
In 2000, he took a job as a surveyor's assistant for $90 a day near his Santa Barbara home, learning a trade. However, the election of George W. Bush put him back into the show business ranks, portraying Bush in a parody on Comedy Centrals sitcom, "That's My Bush."
