Timothy Carey.

Timothy Carey (11 March, 1929 - 11 May, 1994) was an American film and TV character actor. He achieved a cult following for his intense, manic performances. He played roles in films like Stanley Kubrick's The Killing (1956) and Paths Of Glory (1957). He additionally appeared in The Wild One (1950), East of Eden (1955), One-Eyed Jacks (1961), Beach Blanket Bingo (1965), Head (1968) and The Killing Of A Chinese Bookie (1976).

The Beatles added a photograph of Timothy Carey on the cover of Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band (1967), but since George Harrison is positioned in front of the picture it can't be seen on the final album cover.

Quentin Tarantino dedicated the screenplay of his film Reservoir Dogs (1992) to him, among other people.
