John Charles Morris (born October 2, 1984) is an American voice actor. He is best known for his role as the voice of Andy Davis in the Toy Story films.[1][2]

Career[edit]

In 1991 while auditioning for the role of Andy in Toy Story, Morris brought some of his X-Men action figures and made voices for them; the Pixar staff loved it and gave him the part.[3][4] Morris was brought back on to Toy Story 3 by the request of the director Lee Unkrich. On the Toy Story 3 Blu-ray/DVD, Unkrich elaborated that they first had to seek out contact information for Morris, then there was a growing concern over whether his voice would sound right - fears that were relieved when Unkrich first called Morris and heard his voicemail greeting.[5]

He also has minor fame for voicing "Pepper Roni" in the 1997 video game Lego Island.

Personal life[edit]

A 2007 graduate from the University of California-Los Angeles School of Theater, Film & Television, he resides in Northern California.[1]
