Tim Considine is best known to Disney fans for his starring roles in two ongoing serials that were part of The Mickey Mouse Club. He first appeared opposite his friend Tim Considine as Spin Evans in Spin and Marty and its sequels, The Further Adventures of Spin and Marty and The New Adventures of Spin and Marty. He and David returned to the roles more than 40 years later to appear in the 2000 made-for-television film, The New Adventures of Spin and Marty: Suspect Behavior. His second major role was as Frank Hardy The Hardy Boys serial; Disney legend Tommy Kirk played his brother, Joe Hardy.
Tim also played major roles in several other Disney productions. They include the feature film The Shaggy Dog (with Fred MacMurray), The Swamp Fox (with Leslie Nielsen), and as Steven Abernathy in the Annette serial starring Annette Funicello.
His other work includes The Clown (with Red Skelton), Executive Suite (with William Holden and June Allyson), Sunrise at Campobello (with Ralph Bellamy and Greer Garson), and Patton (with George C. Scott). Tim also was a regular (as Mike Douglas) on the My Three Sons television series starring Fred MacMurray.
A DVD version of the Adventures of Spin and Marty was released in December 2005 as part of the fifth wave of the Walt Disney Treasures series. On the 50th anniversary of the serial's premiere, Dave and Tim (who are 19 days apart in age) were interviewed by Leonard Maltin about their experiences filming the hit series as a DVD bonus feature.
Since retiring from acting, Tim has been an automobile historian, photographer, and writer who specializes in motor sports. He is the author of The Photographic Dictionary of Soccer, The Language of Sport, and American Grand Prix Racing: A Century of Drivers and Cars. He has also filled in for William Safire as writer of the "On Language" column in The New York Times Magazine.
