Tim Daly (born March 1, 1956) is a screen and voice actor and producer born in New York City who began his professional career at Vermont's Bennington College, where he studied theater and literature.

His first leading film role was in the film Diner, which also launched the careers of some of today's most respected actors, such as Kevin Bacon. Big roles soon followed in Alan Rudolph's feature, Made in Heaven, the American Playhouse production of The Rise & Rise of Daniel Rocket, and the CBS drama series, Almost Grown.

Daly starred in Broadway's production of Coastal Disturbances by playwright Tina Howe, Oliver, Oliver at the Manhattan Theatre Club, Mass Appeal by Bill C.

He also appeared on the midseason ABC crime series Eyes, which got good reviews but was canceled after only five episodes.

Daly is also known as the voice of Superman in Superman: The Animated Series, and as the star of a remake of the 1960s classic TV drama The Fugitive, which aired for only one season (2000-2001).

In 2006, Daly starred as Nick Cavanaugh in the ABC Drama, The Nine, which was cancelled despite critical acclaim. But in 2007, Daly got another shot from ABC as a new love interest for Kate Walsh (Addison Montgomery) on the new Grey's Anatomy spinoff, Private Practice.

Daly and his wife, actress Amy Van Nostrand have two children, and have both won DramaLogue Awards for Best Actress and Best Actor in the Coast Playhouse's The Colorado Catechism by Vincent J. Cardinal in L.A.

They have been married since 1982.

Private Practice Quotes

A lot of men have a joy of seeing me naked. A lot! Well, not a lot... I mean.. 8, Well... 11.


You ever been violated? Anybody rape you lately? Let me tell you what its like. You know those made for TV movies where some woman's crouched down naked in a shower holding her knees and sobbing because when she closes her eyes she can still feel the guys hands on her? How when they show the attack the woman's eyes go all blank and still and she goes to some other place in her mind just to deal with the horror of what's happening to her while some Lillith Fair song plays. It is nothing like that. He's sturdy and sweaty and he licks your face and wipes himself off in your hair and when you try to scream he punches you so hard you see God. And then he goes at you again reaping stuff you didn't even know you had because he enjoyed it so much the first time. I know you're trying to help but if helping me means that everyone is gonna be looking at me the way you're looking at me now please do not help me.
