When Tim Lounibos first entered Hollywood in the 1990’s, he was branded as part of an “exciting new breed of Asian American actors with widespread mainstream appeal” and went to work immediately on such shows as Star Trek: The Next Generation, Suddenly Susan, and The Nanny, as well as recurring guest stars on Beverly Hills, 90210, The Practice, JAG and The West Wing. Eventually, Tim made the difficult decision to leave Hollywood for a number of years in order to provide for his growing family. However, when onscreen diversity began reflecting the face of society, Tim returned to Hollywood and quickly stacked up a new set of credits, booking such shows as A.P. Bio, Criminal Minds, Doubt, The Real O’Neals, and The Young and the Restless. Currently, he guest stars on Hawaii Five-0 and NCIS and recurs throughout the fifth season of Amazon Studios’ Bosch.
