Tim Daly



Tim Daly has been on some darn good shows. We loved him on Wings, cringed at him on The Sopranos, and currently sigh at him on Private Practice. You may have even heard his voice as Superman on Superman: The Animated Series. If you haven't yet, check out Tim's hilarious The Daly Show on Youtube (next episode is January 29). Private Practice airs on Thursday nights on ABC.

I recently asked Daly what his favorite read was.

Tim tweeted, "Cloud Atlas. Freekin brilliant." He also said it was his current and fave read.

Overview of David Mitchell's Cloud Atlas from barnesandnoble.com.

"A reluctant voyager crossing the Pacific in 1850; a disinherited composer blagging a precarious livelihood in between-the-wars Belgium; a high-minded journalist in Governor Reagan’s California; a vanity publisher fleeing his gangland creditors; a genetically modified “dinery server” on death-row; and Zachry, a young Pacific Islander witnessing the nightfall of science and civilisation -- the narrators of Cloud Atlas hear each other’s echoes down the corridor of history, and their destinies are changed in ways great and small."
You can follow Tim on Twitter here . Help out the man, and follow him to get him to 30K followers!
