Tim Hunter (director)

Tim Hunter (June 15, 1947 in Los Angeles, California) is an American television director. His work includes episodes of "Twin Peaks", "Carnivàle", "House MD", "Law & Order", "Crossing Jordan" and "". Prior to his work in television, Hunter was a director of feature films, including 1986's River's Edge, which won that year's award for best picture at the Independent Spirit Awards.

In addition to his own work, Hunter is also known as the son of British screenwriter Ian McLellan Hunter. In 1993, he controversially refused to cede his late father's Academy Award for the 1953 screenplay to "Roman Holiday": when the Hollywood blacklist was preventing Dalton Trumbo from selling his work, Trumbo arranged for the elder Hunter to be credited instead. Subsequently, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences gave Trumbo's widow a compensatory award.
