I could swear he was named after TS Eliot... But the Character TS in Three for the Road was TS after TS Eliot. It was his favorite author.
: I've heard the two main theories about where the name came from (TS Eliot and TS Garp), but can I throw in one more theory (which I don't think has been mentioned, but apologies if it has)?
: Straight after being in Ferris Bueller (aged 30!!!), Alan Ruck appeared in a movie called "Three For The Road", playing a character called TS. This movie starred Kerri Green (Goonies / Summer Rental) and the legendary Charlie Sheen.
: So there's my theory - the name TS is a tribute to Alan Ruck, and therefore possibly (in a very roundabout way) to John Hughes.
