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]

When auditioning for the role of Andy, 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. Unkrich described the process by which he went to get Morris on the Toy Story 3 Blu-ray/DVD detailing how he called him to ask him to reprise his role as Andy (from the original Toy Story) and after hearing Morris' voicemail greeting, Unkrich knew immediately that Morris would be playing Andy again.[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 currently resides in Northern California.[1]
