Birthplace: West Covina, California, USA

Recognized by the Academy as both an actor and a director, Tim Robbins stood out in Hollywood not only for his 6'5" height, but also for his high-caliber, character-driven work and his career-long commitment to social issues. The New York stage actor had his Hollywood breakout in the atypical role of a dim jock in the classic baseball flick "Bull Durham" (1988), but five years later, he had established himself as a force to be reckoned with as the writer-director of the satire "Bob Roberts" (1992), and the Golden Globe-winning star of Robert Altman's sinister industry send-up "The Player" (1992). While directors like Clint Eastwood continued to tap Robbins the actor for films like "Arlington Road" (1999), "Human Nature" (2002) and "Mystic River" (2003), Robbins the filmmaker went on to helm the acclaimed death penalty drama "Dead Man Walking" (1995), and the Depression-era musical "Cradle Will Rock" (1999), where he skillfully offered viewers new perspectives on political and social issues; not through dogma, but through engaging, relatable characters and stories.
