The Cruise

Timothy "Speed" Levitch (born 1970) is an American actor, tour guide, speaker, author and voice actor. The name "Speed" was given to him by a childhood friend in high school . Levitch has appeared in multiple films and has had his poetic and philosophical works published in books and periodicals.

In 1992 he received his tour guide license from the Central Park Conservancy. He later took a position with Apple and Gray Line Tours as a tour bus guide. He soon attracted a cult following, due not only to his fast talking style, but also for his obvious love of his native city and passionate philosophical ideas.
Levitch's fame was spread beyond NYC when he became the subject of the 1998 documentary The Cruise.

He was also in Waking Life and School of Rock.
