Tim Maculan has sustained a career in theatre, film, television, voice overs and commercials for over 20 years. He is best known professionally for his reoccurring role of the compassionate Father Jack in all five seasons of the Emmy and Golden Globe award-winning HBO series Six Feet Under (2001), and the acerbic, riotous Waiter on the Emmy and Golden Globe award-winning CBS comedy, Cybill (1995). Tim’s character earned a GLAAD media award nomination in 1997.
In and around his work on these two iconic television programs, Tim has guest starred in over thirty television shows including the critically acclaimed Dexter (2006), Grey’s Anatomy (2005), Entourage (2004), The Drew Carey Show (1995), Friends (1994), _”Dharma and Greg” (1997-2002)_, The Larry Sanders Show (1992), and even managed to put in two full seasons as Donald Grisswald on Aaron Spelling’s Love Boat: The Next Wave (1998).
Some of Tim’s film work includes Spider-Man 3 (2007) (Dir. Sam Raimi), Inside Out (2005) (with Steven Weber), Matchstick Men (2003) (Dir. Ridley Scott), Duplex (2003) (with Ben Stiller and Drew Barrymore), Give or Take an Inch (2003). Not bad for a young man who could only dream of playing Jeff Douglas in a community theatre production of Brigadoon in his home town of Rockford, Illinois.
As a freshman, Tim started acting in high school productions as well as in local community and professional theaters (and notably worked at Falmouth Playhouse with Van Johnson and William Shatner). After studying at The School of the Art Institute of Chicago and The DePaul/Goodman School of Drama, he left Chicago for New York City where he began his professional career as an actor working in summer stock and regional theatre across the country.
A member of The Actors Space, Inc. in New York, Tim appeared in their revival of “Hatful of Rain” and a earned critical acclaim for his work in “Found a Peanut” – a show that would launch his career in television when it was remounted in Los Angeles, inviting Tim to move west. Though he quickly began working in television, he never let his true love for the theatre wan, creating the role of Ezra Twain in the world premiere of “Diva” at La Jolla Playhouse, working in a national tour of “Beauty and the Beast” as Cogsworth, a production of “South Pacific” for the North Carolina Theatre of Raleigh and turning in lauded performances in Los Angeles for “Trouble Waters,” “Laughing Wild,” “Celebrity” (The Actors Gang), “Death Benefits” (which was later made into a feature film, The Settlement (1999) and “Theft” for The Hudson Theatre, among others. Most recently he had the opportunity of working in New York City again on ‘Gary Garrison (III)”s provocative collection of plays, “Verticals and Horizontals” at the Cherry Lane Theatre.
