Personal Quote:

I have a bad time between jobs because I'm always convinced I'll never work again. I think it may be an English thing, this fear of unemployment. 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.
