Publicity photo for Toomey

Regis Toomey (August 13, 1898 - October 12, 1991) was a film and television actor.

Educated in dramatics at the University of Pittsburgh, Toomey began as a stock actor and eventually on Broadway. Toomey was a singer on stage until throat problems (acute laryngitis) while touring in Europe stopped that aspect of his career. In 1929, Toomey first began appearing in films. He initally started out as a leading man but then found more success as a character actor (sans his toupee.) The Irish Catholic-raised Toomey appeared in over 180 films and guest starred on dozens of television programs.
