TV Demo Reel

Co-star appearances on Shrill, Portlandia and The Wonderland Murders.

When major TV shows set up shop in Portland, Tim Hill is usually one of the first local actors called in to read for a part. Whether it’s a golf pro, a police detective, a goofy hat enthusiast, a TV talking head, a small town bartender or a wealthy retiree, Tim’s versatility and skills make him a welcome addition to any set.

“Character actors in ‘day player’ roles have a unique challenge ,” says Tim. “There’s usually not much time to establish a reality for the people we play, so we bring it with us and hit the ground running, all while easing into the established work flow and relationships of the series regulars and crew. Unobtrusive yet memorable is the goal. It’s exhilarating and fun, and we get to meet some really cool (and often very famous) other actors. We love it when Hollywood comes to town!”
