Born Timothy Francis Robbins on October 16, 1958, in West Covina, California, he has established himself both as a successful actor and director, receiving nods from the Academy for each post. However, what makes Tim Robbins exceptional is not only his high-caliber and character-driven work, but also his career-long commitment to social issues alongside his equally liberal partner, Susan Sarandon. Raised in Greenwich Village in New York, he got involved with the theater from the early age of 12. Following high-school, teenaged Robbins moved to Los Angeles to study drama and acting, and also co-founded a theater group called The Actors' Gang. Having made his beginnings on the theater stage, he started working in TV and movies in the early '80s with his roles in The Sure Thing (1985, starring John Cusack) and Top Gun (1986, starring Tom Cruise). As for his big Hollywood breakthrough, he made it with the offbeat role of a dim jock in the classic baseball flick, "Bull Durham" (1988). After five years, Robbins finally got the chance to pose himself as a force to be reckoned with as the writer-director of the satiric comedy, "Bob Roberts" (1992), as well as the Golden Globe-winning star of Robert Altman's sinister industry send-up, "The Player" (1992). While the likes of Clint Eastwood went on to tap Robbins to play in films like "Arlington Road" (1999), "Human Nature" (2002) and "Mystic River" (2003), he has never ceased directing features, which include the acclaimed death penalty drama, "Dead Man Walking" (1995) and Depression-era musical, "Cradle Will Rock" (1999). As a filmmaker, he skillfully treated viewers with new perspectives on political and social issues, through engaging, real-life characters and stories. Although his longtime partnership with Sarandon came to an end in 2009, Robbins still remained dedicated to both his causes and his craft.
