Just as a heads-up, the first 11 minutes are an intro of sorts, as well as a Q&A advice segment (fair warning: some of the content there may be a bit dated/patriarchal for some), so feel free to skip ahead to the 11-minute mark.
The interview portion itself is sweet and so beautiful, going into how Tim and Lisa met in grad school, became close friends, and fell in love, as well as their Cooperstown engagement story, wedding, and beyond!
Let us know what you thought in the comments below! (I’ve also added this episode to my Tim DeKay Podcast playlist on Spotify, FYI.)
Thanks to Pennygirl612 for the heads-up – WordTheatre has posted Tim’s reading of Lore Segal’s “The Arbus Factor” as the latest episode of their Short Story Podcast! You can check it out below or listen wherever you listen to podcasts. It’s also available on Spotify, so I added it to our playlist of Tim’s podcast appearances.
(This is likely the same recording from 2021 that they’d previously had on their Vimeo account before removing it.)
Great news – Oppenheimer is now available on DVD, Blu-ray, 4K UHD, and digital! The movie, in which Tim plays Senator Pastore, comes with 3+ hours of bonus content, including the 70-minute featurette, “The Story of Our Time: The Making of Oppenheimer.” The various disc versions also include a digital download code.

The Pudding, which is returning after a four-year Covid hiatus, is described in the press release as “a delightful evening of stories, poetry, and song that celebrates the grace, goodness, and occasional perils of the season.”
There’s only one performance this year, on Saturday, December 16 at 7:00 pm at Westwood Presbyterian Church in Los Angeles. You can get tickets at the door or on Eventbrite – $25 for adults and $10 for kids 16 and under.
Proceeds from this year’s Pudding go to FosterAll, “a charity started by Westwood Presbyterian and Dr. Mary Rotzien to support foster children and parents.”
Have you ever wanted to chat with Tim and Matt about White Collar? Here’s your chance!
A Zoom meeting with Tim and Matt is just one of the many items up for bids in an auction benefitting The Union Solidary Coalition. According to TUSC’s website, they’re currently offering “direct financial support to crew members who have lost health insurance due to strike-related shutdowns.” This isn’t for the A-listers but instead benefits members of IATSE, Teamsters, and others who are out of work because of the strikes and who’ve lost their health insurance as a result.
According to the auction listing on eBay, the winner will get a 20-minute Zoom conversation with Tim and Matt where you can chat White Collar with them, and you’re allowed to bring one friend! It’s open to US residents only, and you can take photos but can’t record video of the session. The rest of the details, including the small print, disclaimers, etc., can be found in the auction listing. The auction ends on Friday, September 22 at 7:13pm (time zone isn’t specified).
As of the time of this post, the current bid is up to $1925.00, so it’s probably not even remotely feasible for most (myself included), but we hope the lucky winners have a wonderful time!
There are lots of other amazing auctions benefitting TUSC as well – check them out here! All are legitimate, but make sure to read all of the fine print before bidding! (Tim and Matt both posted about the auction on their respective IG accounts.)
While we can still post about this – Oppenheimer hits theaters in the US and UK this Friday, July 21! Tim has a small role as Senator Pastore in the film, which was written and directed by Christopher Nolan and stars Cillian Murphy, Emily Blunt, Matt Damon, Robert Downey Jr., and Florence Pugh.
The film was shot in IMAX, and the best way to see it would be at a theater capable of showing the IMAX 70mm version. You can find a list of those in this article, which also explains the different film formats. The regular version of the film will also be playing in theaters across the country, so you can still check it out there if you don’t live close enough to an IMAX location.
This is one of the most highly-anticipated films of the year, and we’re thrilled that Tim got to be a part of it!
Edited to add: international release dates include July 19 for France, July 20 for Germany and Denmark, and July 21 for Norway and Sweden.
It’s hard to believe an entire decade has passed since the first time Ara and I worked on a birthday project together for Tim, but here we are! Back in 2013, Ara put together a birthday book of greetings from around the world for Tim’s 50th and gave it to him in person in NYC just before his birthday, and it was a huge hit! That’s also the first time she and I worked together on something for Tim, and it wasn’t long after that we debuted this very website!
I’ve been posting lots of birthday collages and greetings for Tim on Instagram. Most of it is included on the feed itself, but anything in the stories was also added to a highlight collection so it can be viewed for longer than 24 hours. Check it out!
Tim, I hope you’ve had an amazing 60th birthday, and that you have a great year ahead and many, many more to come! Much love! ❤️
Here’s the reaction post for Tim’s episode of Law & Order – editing this now that I’ve had a chance to watch. What a great role! It was wonderful to see Tim get so much screen time in this one. I was hoping we’d see quite a bit of him since he was the top-billed guest star, and the episode didn’t disappoint!
So what did you think? Let us know in the comments, as usual!
Expect spoilers for the episode – so if you haven’t seen the episode yet and don’t want to be spoiled, you should avoid reading the comments on this post until you’ve watched it.

FabTV interviewed Tim last week for the “Honor: In Their Words” event at the Hollywood Legion Theater, and they’ve posted the interview on YouTube! Tim talks more about the event itself, which commemorates the 50th anniversary of the end of the Vietnam War, and about growing up during that time and seeing the effects it had on those who served.
As promised on Instagram, here are the photos from the “Honor: In Their Words” event Tim did yesterday at the Hollywood Legion Theater for WordTheatre. (Click the link above or the photo below to see the rest!)
The event, which honored military veterans on the 50th anniversary of the end of the Vietnam War, featured actors reading stories written by veterans. Tim read “Thanksgiving Special” from In Pharoah’s Army: Memories of the Lost War by Tobias Wolff, and he was joined by the likes of Sharon Stone, Bill Pullman, Kathy Baker, Griffin Dunne, and Jason George.
If you’re a paid member of WordTheatre, they should be posting a video of this event soon! In the meantime, check out the great photos in the gallery.
