In 1967, Bottoms toured Europe as part of the Santa Barbara Madrigal Society.

Career

Bottoms made his film debut in 1971 as a horrifically mutilated WWI soldier in Dalton Trumbo's "Johnny Got His Gun". The same year, he appeared alongside his brother Sam in "The Last Picture Show". (He portrayed the same character in the 1990 sequel "Texasville"). He has appeared in other notable films such as "The Paper Chase", "Love and Pain and the Whole Damn Thing", and "Elephant".

Bottoms has a unique notability for portraying U.S. President George W. Bush in three wildly varying productions. In 2000-2001, he played a parody of Bush in the Comedy Central sitcom "That's My Bush!" (from the makers of "South Park"); he subsequently appeared as Bush in a cameo appearance in the family film "". Finally, following the September 11, 2001 attacks, Bottoms once again played Bush, this time in a serious fashion, in the telefilm "DC 9/11", one of the first movies to be based upon the attacks.

During an episode of the Fox television show "That '70s Show" in which a tornado warning has been issued and the students of the high school are trapped, Bottoms is seen as the panicking principal. His most recent role was as Mr. Kidman in "The Girl Next Door" (2004).

Timothy appears on a recurring role on FX new series "Dirt" as Gibson Horne, main character Lucy Spiller's underhanded boss.

He also co-produced the documentary "Picture This - The Times of Peter Bogdanovich in Archer City, Texas" (1991) dealing with behind-the-scenes look on the films "The Last Picture Show" and "Texasville". In the documentary, he revealed that he had a crush on his co-star Cybill Shepherd during "The Last Picture Show," but she didn't reciprocate his feelings.
