Q: Where are you originally from and where are you located now on the map?
Tim Scanlon – A: I’m originally from Syracuse, New York and living in Sherman Oaks, California.
Q: Tim, you’re a professional actor and producer of Scanman Films with many years of quality experience in the entertainment industry: from appearing on HBO, TV Shows, and films, premiering your action films to large crowds for troubled youth charities…. What would you say motivates you and inspires you to be the best at your profession?
Tim Scanlon – A: Ever since I was young , performing in backyards by throwing “kid shows”; whether it was dancing on our elevated porches to seventies vinyl records, or acting out made-up skits, I’ve always felt driven to entertaining people. So, in essence, I want to bring quality enjoyment and fun to audiences everywhere. An exhilarating experience from my content has always been what I want to give viewers.
Q: Do you have a selection of top 3 favorite actors, filmmakers or directors that you admire and want to work with in the business?
Tim Scanlon – A: Burt Reynolds, Sylvester Stallone and James Cameron would be the top 3. Realistically, aside from Burt Reynolds, those guys are on their own paths. Not sure they would give me the time of day. Maybe Stallone would… give me the time… from his wristwatch… nothing else. 🙂
Q: As an actor, what would you say is your fav genre in roles you play (Drama, Comedy, Action, a little bit of all)?
Tim Scanlon – A: I am way better at comedy but I always end up doing action/drama stuff. That’s why I really would love to be a lead in a romantic comedy.
Q: Share with us something people may not know about you. What hobbies or other secret talents you have and or like to do in your spare time aside from filmmaking?
Tim Scanlon – A: Health is important to me so I exercise several times a week. And I am a Craftsman. I fix interiors of cars, SUV’s and all types of vehicles.
Q: Can you share with us any projects you have it the works or that you’ve wrapped up?
Tim Scanlon – A: I recently finished shooting a “Ray Donovan” type pilot for an action series called “The Subcontractor” with guest Queen of Martial Arts, Cynthia Rothrock.
She has signed a letter of intent to be a regular in the series once it is picked up. I have two media platforms interested and a third ready to talk. I love the attention the project is getting due to Cynthia’s involvement.
