After making his film debut in Barry Levinson’s “Diner,” Tim Daly went on to appear in many feature films including “Lowdown,” with John Hawkes, Peter Dinklage, and Elle Fanning, which premiered at the 2014 Sundance Film Festival and of which he is a co-producer. Also, he starred in “Against the Ropes,” “Year of the Comet” and “Denise Calls Up,” among many others.
On the small screen, Daly starred in “The Fugitive,” on the Network, for which he earned a SAG Award nomination, and guest starred on HAWAII FIVE-0 and “Judging Amy,” also on the Network, “Almost Grown,” “Private Practice,” “Wings,” “The Nine,” “Eyes,” “The Mindy Project” and “The Sopranos,” for which he earned an Emmy Award nomination. Additionally, he appeared in several television miniseries and movies, including “From the Earth to the Moon,” “Storm of the Century” and “The Outsider.”
Behind the camera, Daly produced the documentary film “Poliwood,” directed by Barry Levinson. “Poliwood” presents an in-depth look at the 2008 Presidential election, blending footage from the Republican and Democratic conventions, as well as interviews with celebrities and key political figures. Daly’s association and work with “Poliwood” stems from his long involvement with The Creative Coalition, for which he has served as president for the past six years. The Coalition is a non-profit, non-partisan, social and political advocacy organization in which members of the entertainment community promote issues of public importance, specifically in the areas of First Amendment rights, arts advocacy and public education.
Daly studied theatre and literature at Bennington College.
He divides his time between Los Angeles and Vermont. His birthday is March 1.
