Actor, Director, Producer and Writer
Timothy Agoglia Carey was an American film and television actor. He was born in Brooklyn, New York. Carey wrote, produced, directed, and starred in the 1962 feature The World's Greatest Sinner, which was scored by Frank Zappa. Although it did not have wide commercial release, the film achieved cult status through repeated screenings at the "midnight movies" in Los Angeles in the 1960s. This movie established Carey as an important figure in independent film. Carey usually portrayed psychotic, manic, arrogant, obsessed, and/or violent characters, who are driven to extremes. As an actor, Carey appeared in the Stanley Kubrick films The Killing and Paths of Glory, and in the John Cassavetes-directed films Minnie and Moskowitz and The Killing of a Chinese Bookie. During the filming of Paths Of Glory Carey was disruptive, trying to draw more attention to his character during the filming. A scene where Carey and the other actors were brought a duck dinner as their final meal before execution took 57 takes due to his behavior. The final straw occurred when he faked his own kidnapping for personal publicity, causing Kubrick and Producer James B. Harris to fire him.
