Tim Thomerson Net Worth

Tim Thomerson was born on April 08, 1946 in  Coronado, California, United States, is Actor, Producer, Miscellaneous Crew. Tim Thomerson rates highly as one of the best, most prolific, versatile and dependable character actors to ever grace both the big and small screens alike with pleasing regularity since the mid 70s. Although often cast as laconic rough 'n' tumble macho guys, Thomerson has proved on many occasions that he can essay comic roles and more substantial dramatic parts with equal skill and conviction. He was born on April 8th, 1946 in Coronado, California and was raised in Hawaii and San Diego. He did a stint in the National Guard prior to getting a job as a prop man and set builder at the Old Globe Theatre in San Diego. Character actor Anthony Zerbe advised Thomerson to get lessons from legendary acting teacher Stella Adler in New York; and he duly studied with Adler for four years.He began his show business career as a stand-up comedian; he performed at the clubs The Bitter End, Bud Friedman's Improvisation and Catch A Rising Star in New York and at the Comedy Store and the Improv in Los Angeles. He eventually even had a guest spot on "The Tonight Show" with Johnny Carson. His film debut was with a funny small role in the hilarious "Car Wash." He achieved his greatest enduring cult popularity with his delightfully deadpan portrayal of rugged police detective Jack Deth in the terrific "Trancers" and its strictly so-so sequels. Other memorable parts include eccentric police detective Jerry Moriarty in the fine "Fade to Black," weary factory worker Ray in "Take This Job and Shove It," a highway patrolman in Clint Eastwood's poignant and underrated "Honkytonk Man," burnt-out Vietnam vet helicopter pilot Charts in the exciting "Uncommon Valor," grimy mercenary Rhodes in the cheesy "Metalstorm: The Destruction of Jared-Syn," the crazed John Reynolds in "Volunteers," demented cult leader Lester in "Cherry 2000," the tough-as-nails the Sarge in the enjoyably quirky "Zone Troopers;" lovely and touching as the gentle Loy in the outstanding "Near Dark," diminutive, but fearless alien lawman Brick Bardo in the funky "Dollman," and a scruffy motorcyclist in Terry Gilliam's unjustly maligned "Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas." Tim has appeared in a large number of films for low-budget independent director Albert Pyon and acted alongside real-life best buddy Brion James in numerous pictures (the two first met while both serving in the National Guard Reserves). On television Thomerson played the half-man, half-woman Gene-Jean on the uproarious, but sadly short-lived sci-fi parody program "Quark." Thomerson also had recurring roles on the TV shows "Sirens" and "Land's End" and has made guest appearances on countless TV shows.

Thomerson has had a very long career in television and in film, appearing in scores of films since the 1970s. He had a memorable minor role in Car Wash. He played Criminal Psychologist Jerry Moriarity in the 1980 slasher film Fade to Black.


Thomerson first came to prominence in the short-lived comedy science-fiction TV series Quark in 1977–78, as Gene/Jean, a character of dual gender who randomly switched from a macho to a feminine personality.


When Charles Band started up Full Moon Features in the late 1980s, one of his first projects was Trancers II (released in 1991), in which he reunited Thomerson with much of the cast from the first film. Thomerson would appear in every sequel thereafter, with the exception of Trancers 6, which instead starred Zette Sullivan in her only lead role, and used archive footage of Thomerson to enhance the story. Thomerson is considering returning in another Trancers sequel.


In 1985, Thomerson starred as the time-traveling Future cop Jack Deth in the low budget science fiction film Trancers which was produced by Charles Band and Empire Pictures. The role made him an icon of the B-movie genre, and led to Thomerson building a working relationship with the Bands. He was supposed to appear in Pulse Pounders which was ultimately never completed.


In 1986, Thomerson would reunite with a few of his Trancers co-stars for Zone Troopers, and he appeared in the vampire film Near Dark. He also appeared as a villain opposite Melanie Griffith's heroine in Cherry 2000 and as Major Dan Hackett in the Disney made-for-TV movie, The B.R.A.T. Patrol starring opposite Sean Astin, Nia Long and Brian Keith.


He appeared in NBC's 1988 television film The Incredible Hulk Returns as The Hulk's opponent, Jack LeBeau.


Thomerson has had many memorable roles in feature films, including Uncommon Valor, Air America, Volunteers, Who's Harry Crumb?, Iron Eagle, and Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, just to name a few, as well as numerous television roles such as Tour of Duty and 21 Jump Street. He also played Colonel Savage of the Missouri Militia on The Young Riders in 1989. In the '90s he was a series regular on the television police drama Sirens followed by a regular, co-starring role on the series Land's End starring Fred Dryer.


Thomerson's most famous role is that of Jack Deth, the hero of Charles Band's Trancers series. Playing against his comedic roots, Thomerson played Deth as a hard-nosed epitome of machismo, like the science fiction equivalent of Clint Eastwood in the Dirty Harry series. The character continued in four more sequels throughout the 1990s. A fifth sequel, Trancers 6, was released in 2002 but Thomerson was not involved.


Another movie role that made Thomerson popular with fans of science-fiction was that of Brick Bardo in the 1991 film Dollman, a Dirty Harry-like alien cop who is 13 inches tall, and uses his blaster gun to take on Gangsters and devil-possessed toys in two obscure feature films. The character also appeared very briefly in Bad Channels.


Other career highlights include Babo in the adventure film Air America with Mel Gibson and Robert Downey, Jr., grimy mercenary Rhodes in Metalstorm: The Destruction of Jared-Syn, demented cult leader Lester in Cherry 2000, Loy in the horror classic Near Dark, diminutive lawman Brick Bardo in Dollman and Dollman vs. Demonic Toys, and a scruffy motorcyclist in Terry Gilliam's Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas. Thomerson is a stock player in the films of actor/director Michael Worth (DUAL, Devil on the Mountain, God's Ears) and a favorite of Director Albert Pyun (Dollman, Knights, Nemesis, Nemesis 3: Prey Harder).
