Perhaps the best known of Timoney's roles on television is as the character of Alfred Vanderpool on All My Children.[1] The musical team Boyz II Men drew inspiration from Timoney's Vanderpool, and Nathan Morris, one of its tenors, used the stage name "Alex Vanderpool" in the character's honor early in the team's career.

He is also a well-known voice actor, specializing in "dubbing" voices for foreign language live action and animated programs.[2] He also directs and adapts Japanese anime at Headline Studios.

Theatre workEdit

In April 2010, Timoney made his off-Broadway theater debut at the Soho Playhouse as a standby for the actor Dan Butler in the role of Joseph Flaherty in The Irish Curse, dramatized by Martin Casella. Timoney replaced Butler for a few performances and was very favorably reviewed. In August 2010, he again received excellent notices for his portrayal as Bob in the Stephen Padilla drama, Picking Palin, for the New York International Fringe Festival. In December 2010, Timoney and his wife Georgette Reilly Timoney appeared at the Arkansas Repertory Theatre in Little Rock, Arkansas in a stage adaptation of A Christmas Story.[3]

Timoney served as associate producer, cast member and fight coordinator for the independent feature film Last Chance, the directing debut of Emmy-winning actor Bryan Cranston (of Breaking Bad).

In early 2014, Timoney made his Broadway debut portraying nine roles (Senator Karl Mundt; a White House aide; a butler, a Secret Service agent, a Congressman and others) in a dramatic play written by Robert Schenkkan entitled All The Way starring Bryan Cranston as Lyndon B. Johnson. The play opened on March 6, 2014 at The Neil Simon Theatre in Manhattan. It received very favorable reviews. It received four Outer Critics Circle nominations for Outstanding New Broadway Play; Outstanding Director Of A Play (Bill Rauch); Outstanding Actor In A Play (Bryan Cranston); and Outstanding Featured Actor In A Play (John McMartin). All The Way won two 2014 Tony Awards for Best Play (Robert Schenkkan) and Best Actor In A Play (Bryan Cranston).

In 2018, Timoney and Cranston returned to Broadway in the stage adaptation of the film Network.[2] Cranston won his second Tony Award for his portrayal of TV news anchorman Howard "mad as hell" Beale. Timoney played the TV news program's director, and he also understudied Cranston in the Beale role.

Timoney appears in the 2019 feature film The Irishman. Director Martin Scorsese chose Timoney to play an unscripted role of the prosecutor at the title character's trial. Timoney and Robert De Niro improvised the entire sequence of the prosecutor questioning the defendant.[2]

Personal lifeEdit

Timoney has been married to actress Georgette Riley, since March 16, 2002.[2] The couple first met in the 80s while Timoney was working in broadway theaters.[2]
