Timothy Carey Facts
Has a uniquely twisted screen presence that many great directors tried, and often failed, to harness. He was the only man Elia Kazan ever physically attacked on the set. Marlon Brando cast him in One-Eyed Jacks (1961) and ended up, in desperation and frustration, stabbing him with a pen. When John Cassavetes came to his house for the first time, Carey made him wear a bulky, padded suit and then turned his attack dog loose on him. Despite this odd happening, Cassevetes later declared that Carey had the "brilliance of Eisenstein."

Father of Romeo Carey.

Quentin Tarantino had a page in his script for Reservoir Dogs (1992) where he dedicated the movie to some of his inspirations. Timothy Carey was at the very top. He also auditioned for the role of Joe Cabot, but Tarantino didn't think that he was right for the role.
