To newer audiences, Tim Matheson is best known for his recurring role as Jeb Bartlett's vice president, John Hoynes, on The West Wing; he was also lead anchor Bill Dunne on the short-lived Breaking News. Classic cartoon fans likely recall he was the voice of Jonny Quest and other vintage Hanna-Barbera cartoons. His directing resume, as is his list of directing and producing credits, is most impressive.
