VIP -Look for Tim's Episode for the November sweeps.
Dream Team -No word on when the episode will air. Just keep an eye out for it.
Tim has spent the last couple of months participating in sporting clay shoots. He was also in Florida learning to drive racecars.
For the Children
Tim's episode was on recently and it was good seeing him again on TV. He was cast as a Gulf War veteran. The thing I found interesting was they hadn't even shown Tim on the screen when you hear his voice. You couldn't miss him! My only complaint about the episode is Tim's part was WAY too short!
Questions & Answers
1.Tim, what are your thoughts and feelings regarding the second season of SOF? Were you happy with what went on with all of the major changes and decline in quality stories and characters?
As a viewer, I preferred the first season of SOF. I liked the dark, gritty episodes like Broken Play and Over the Wire. But, as an actor, I did enjoy some of the character driven episodes of the second season such as Tethered Goat and Who's Who. I hated loosing Real and Mark from season 1(we're all still great friends), but, I am very grateful for having met, worked with and becoming friends with David Eigenberg. I understand what the producers were trying to do in season 2. They were trying to appeal to a larger audience, which would have meant a longer run. But alas.......
2. Who has been your favorite costar in the movies? In television? Big-name star, or little known.
With out a doubt, Angie Everhart, whom I just, worked with on The Dream Team in Puerto Rico. It was a magical experience working with her. I have not experienced to many of those moments in my career. I hope to work with her again soon. Plus, she does a mean Tango!

MOS- 11B2V US ARMY AIRBORNE RANGER, 2ND RANGER BN. Light Weapons and Dragon Gunner.

My Dad! From him I learned responsibility, good work ethics and being accountable for my actions.

Watched sometimes. We usually got advanced screeners and watched ahead of time. I watch as a tool to become a better actor. I'm very critical of my work and sometimes have to laugh at what I see on screen. But, watching SOF, I can definitely say that I have come a long way since much of my earlier work.
45. Did you ever think that BR would have such a loyal male/female following? And why do you think he was the favorite character on the show?
My idea, and the writers idea of Benny Ray, was to create the type of man that did all the things that we wish we had the balls to do. The man who could make the hard decisions and then act swiftly and with out mercy. A man who could not sit by and watch injustice take place with out doing something about it, regardless of the consequences to himself. A man who never let his friends down and was always there for them. A man who truly believed in Unit, God and Country. People Identify with that and would like to have those same qualities, including myself. To me, Benny Ray, is my alter ego.

Only one. "RUNNING THROUGH THE JUNGLE", by Joe Bob, It was good!

I am in certain places. Depends more on who's doing the tickling as to how ticklish I am!
