From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia Philip Anthony McKeon (November 11, 1964 – December 10, 2019) was an American actor, known for playing the role of Tommy Hyatt, the son of the title character, on the sitcom Alice, from 1976 to 1985. His younger sister is actress Nancy McKeon. McKeon's professional career began when he was 4. His parents took him and Nancy, then aged 2, to a modeling audition and he began his career as a child model appearing in magazines, newspapers, and television commercials. Over the next several years he landed numerous modeling stints, followed by several parts on stage and in films. Linda Lavin, who played Alice, first saw Philip at a Broadway performance and thought he was bright and talented and recommended him for the part of Tommy. After Alice ended in 1985, McKeon continued to make periodic acting appearances. He also produced or directed a few films. McKeon died in Texas on December 10, 2019, following a long illness.
