In 2015, he played the villainous King Richard in Galavant. Omundson portrays Head Detective Carlton Lassiter as a main cast member on the USA Network hit original series Psych.


Omundson was born in St. Joseph, Missouri, to a railroad worker father and teacher mother. After his family moved to Bellevue, Washington, he started to study theater at the age of twelve at the Seattle Children's Theater and interned at various theaters during his high school years. With acting as his primary focus, he studied during the summer of his junior year in New York City at the American Academy of Dramatic Arts. For two years in a row, he was Washington State Debate Champion in Dramatic Interpretation.

After graduating from Interlake High School in 1987, Omundson went to the University of Southern California where he graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Theater. He won USC's Jack Nicholson Award and James and Nony Doolittle Award for outstanding achievements in acting.

Omundson lives in Los Angeles with his wife, Allie, and their daughters.

Omundson voices the character Aric Jorgan in the MMORPG Star Wars: The Old Republic. Aric Jorgan is the first companion for the Republic Trooper class.

According to USA Network's "Psych All Night" event, Timothy's favorite episode is "Last Night Gus".

Timothy played the devious, villainous King Richard in the musical comedy series Galavant (2015-6).

Sadly, due to a stroke in April 2017, Omundson's role in Psych: The Movie had to be greatly scaled back, although Steve Franks has said this provides added incentive to make more films.


  • In Psych, he portrays Carlton Lassiter, a detective who hates the local psychic. Coincidentally, he appears in the "Are you psychic?" commercial in Starship Troopers only this time, he is the psychic.
  • Omundson is dyslexic.
