    He also played a pacifist preacher on A-Team who eschewed violence of any form. Now exactly what he thought they were supposed to do is beyond me! He wound up firing them for the fact they wanted to use violence to solve the situation (locals were trying to run off his church and congregation). Once fired, they went back and took care of the bad guys in their own way. Tim's preacher character then refused to build the church there because of the use of violence.

    He was a very fine actor in my personal opinion. Always soft spoken, yet believable in any role he was put in.

    I think he also played Edith's (younger-days) flame on All in the Family.
