Personal Quote:

[on creating the voice of Cogsworth in Beauty and the Beast (1991)] I, at first, imagined a grandfather clock with a deep booming voice. Because he was smaller his vocal chords were also smaller and so the vocal quality became tighter. Then I tried to add a little bit of an uptight, pompous aspect and so that was the voice.

Is the only actor to be a part of both the cast of Beauty and the Beast (1991) and it's 1994 Broadway cast. In both he provides the atmospheric narration for the respective prologues. See more »
