Personal Quote:

[on General Thade's temper in Planet of the Apes (2001)] I remember that from a documentary series. When they charge you, when they fight, they go insane. And then you're gone. It's over. They are very vicious at times. See more »

Trivia:

His father was born in Brooklyn, New York City, to a British immigrant family of Irish ancestry. His mother was English. Tim's father changed the family name from the British/American sounding "Smith" to "Roth" after World War II, because he was a journalist who traveled in countries that disliked the British and Americans.
