A stage-trained performer who hailed from an acting family which included father James Daly and sister Tyne Daly, actor Tim Daly came into his own as one of the stars of the long-running sitcom "Wings" (NBC, 1990-97). Prior to his turn as the button-downed Joe Hackett, Daly had an auspicious beginning with a starring role in Barry Levinson's directorial debut, "Diner" (1982), only to find himself languishing in numerous made-for-televisions movies and failed series. But "Wings" finally allowed the actor to breakthrough and find an audience, which helped open the doors to more prominent small screen projects like in "In the Line of Duty: Ambush in Waco" (NBC, 1993), "Witness to the Execution" (NBC, 1994) and "From the Earth to the Moon" (HBO, 1998). Though prominent on television, Daly struggled to find his footing, though he delivered solid performances in "The Object of My Affection" (1998) and "Seven Girlfriends" (2000). But television proved to be the best fit for Daly, who found a home with stints on "The Sopranos" (HBO, 1999-2007) and "Private Practice" (ABC, 2007- ), while still holding out hope for equal success on the big screen.
