Distinguished character actor Tim Kelleher built his career out of playing everymen with a rough-cut and slightly somber demeanor, which lent him perfectly to portrayals of such types as NARCs, urban cops, military lieutenants, and slightly shady corporate flunkies. A Bronx native, Kelleher moved to Staten Island at the age of four, where he attended primary and secondary school (playing and excelling at football), but moved to New Jersey not long after and finished high school in that locale. Kelleher attended Villanova University in Pennsylvania, then enrolled in a religious order known as the Society of Jesus (the Jesuits) and did work for it before returning to New York City and founding his own theatrical troupe, the Colony, primarily devoted to putting on its own original plays (including several authored by Kelleher). An experience playing a role in a non-Colony production helped Kelleher secure an agent, and soon after he moved to Hollywood (in the late '80s), landing roles in a myriad of features, including Black Rain (1989), Malcolm X (1992), Clockers (1995), Matchstick Men (2003), and Flash of Genius (2008). He was particularly memorable in Flash, as a Ford employee sent out on multiple occasions to attempt to buy off Robert Kearns (Greg Kinnear) with an out-of-court settlement.
