Born in West Covina, California, but raised in New York City, Tim Robbins is the son of former The Highwaymen singer Gil Robbins and actress Mary Robbins (I). Robbins studied drama at UCLA, where he graduated with honors in 1981. That same year, he formed the Actors' Gang theater group, an experimental ensemble that expressed radical political observations through the European avant-garde form of theater. He started film work in TV movies in 1983, but hit the big time in 1988 with his portrayal of dim-witted fastball pitcher "Nuke" Laloosh in Bull Durham (1988). Tall with baby-faced looks, he has the ability to play naive and obtuse (Cadillac Man (1990) and The Hudsucker Proxy (1994)) or slick and shrewd (The Player (1992) and Bob Roberts (1992)).

  • His father, 'Gil Robbins' (qv), was a member of the folk-music group 'The Highwaymen' (qv). His mother is actress 'Mary Robbins (I)' (qv). Has a brother, 'David Robbins (I)' (qv) and sister 'Adele Robbins' (qv). Two sons with partner 'Susan Sarandon' (qv): 'Miles Robbins (I)' (qv) and 'Jack Henry Robbins' (qv). He and Sarandon have been together since 1988.
  • Is good friends with 'John Cusack' (qv), in addition to being his co-star in six films: _Bob Roberts (1992)_ (qv), _Cradle Will Rock (1999)_ (qv), _High Fidelity (2000)_ (qv), _The Player (1992)_ (qv), _The Sure Thing (1985)_ (qv), and _Tapeheads (1988)_ (qv).
  • Was kicked off his high school hockey team for fighting.
  • (August 2001) A long-time Green Party member (along with partner, 'Susan Sarandon' (qv)), he was repeatedly criticized by other Hollywood stars for voting for 'Ralph Nader (I)' (qv) in the controversial 2000 election. He wrote a small essay about why he made the choice in the August 6, 2001, edition of "The Nation," a monthly progressive magazine.
  • (October 1997) Ranked #60 in Empire (UK) magazine's "The Top 100 Movie Stars of All Time" list.
  • Was considered for the role of Dr. Doom in _Fantastic Four (2005)_ (qv) and Eddie Darko in _Donnie Darko (2001)_ (qv).
  • (August 2001) LA Weekly cover story detailed his struggle taking creative control of The Actors' Gang, the theater company he founded in 1981. Many long-time members of the group left the company during the controversy.
  • After the September 11 attacks, he tried to fly out of New York City to be with 'Susan Sarandon' (qv) and their children in Hollywood. Upon finding out that all flights were grounded, he and a friend drove from New York City to Los Angeles in a 56-hour trip that began on the morning of September 12, 2001.
