Thomas Allen Brown (born May 24, 1937 in Richmond, Indiana) (aka "Tim", "Timmy", "Timothy", "Timothy Luther") is a former professional American football player and actor.


Early life

Brown was born in Knightstown, Indiana. Brown is a 1955 graduate of Morton Memorial High School at the Indiana Soldiers and Sailors Children's Home in Knightstown.[1]

Football career

Brown played college football at Ball State University. As a pro (when he was known mainly as "Timmy" Brown), he played only a single game with the Green Bay Packers, eight seasons with the Philadelphia Eagles and one season with the Baltimore Colts of the National Football League (NFL).

Brown went to the Pro Bowl in 1962, 1963, and 1965. He is the only player in Philadelphia history to return a kickoff 105 yards for a touchdown, and the only Eagle (and one of seven NFL players ever) to return two kickoffs, 90- and 93-yarders, for touchdowns in the same game[2].

Acting career

Brown's acting career began while he was still an active player, with a guest appearance on the Season 3 premiere of The Wild Wild West. He played Clint Cartwheel in the episode titled "The Night of the Bubbling Death," which originally aired on September 8, 1967.[3]

Following his retirement from the NFL, he became a full-time actor, appearing in such films as MASH, Nashville, Dynamite Brothers, Zebra Force and Doombeach. He also appeared in a half-dozen episodes of the first season of the M*A*S*H television series as Dr. Oliver Harmon "Spearchucker" Jones, but was dropped from the show when the producers learned that there were no African American surgeons serving in Korea during the Korean War. Along with Gary Burghoff, G. Wood, and Corey Fischer, he is one of only four actors who appeared in both the original MASH movie and the spin-off television series.

He also made a guest appearance on I've Got A Secret, during which he sang a song of the same name.

In addition, he made a guest appearance in the third season of Adam-12, titled Log 76: The Militants, as a friend of Officer Jim Reed.
