Bill Timoney, born William Regan Timoney on March 5, 1958 in Teaneck, New Jersey, is an American actor. He is the brother of actor Mike Timoney and son of Mary Gardiner, of The Big Surprise fame. He is married to fellow actress Georgette Reilly.
Known television work
Perhaps the best known of Timoney's roles on television is as the character of Alfred Vanderpool on All My Children. 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.
Known dubbing work
Bill is also well known as a voice actor, script-adapter and ADR director, primarily working on English-language dubs of Japanese anime. His major works as a voice actor include Parn in Record of Lodoss War, multiple roles in the notorious Legend of the Overfiend, and Dr. Yung in The Mastermind of Mirage Pokémon. (He also provides the voices of Harley, Nando, Izzie and Conway in the series.)
His work as a script-adapter and ADR recording director include the popular anime programs Gravitation and Genshiken. Bill voiced the leads roles of Mr. Sakano and club leader Madarame Hiranobu in those series. He adapted the scripts and directed the dubbing sessions for all the episodes to the series GOKUDO: SWORDSMAN EXTRAORDINAIRE. His scripts were so well received that the critic for the genre fan-boy website www.revolutionsf.com urged his readers to watch Timoney's dubbed version of the program instead of the subtitled version.
Timoney's voice work extends beyond the anime-dubbing genre. He voiced the title character in the dubbed version of the Russian-made animated film Alosha Popovich y Tugarin, the first feature in acclaimed animator Konstantin Bronsit's Bogatir trilogy. Timoney is also the voice of the spacecraft computer in the Disney movie Mission to Mars, the voice of Mindhead in the Frank Oz comedy Bowfinger, and the World War II newsreel narrator in Molly: An American Girl on the Homefront. In total, he can be heard in hundreds of movies, TV shows, TV commercials and animated programs.
Known stage work
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.
