Personal Quote:

The hardest thing about animating Scar in The Lion King (1994) was when I realized that he doesn't have hands. I thought, "My god, the hands can be so expressive! What do I do without them?" It definitely made me stretch as an animator because I had to make other things do the gestures. Occasionally though I treated his paws like hands. See more »

Trivia:

Referred as one of Disney's "Nine New Men". See more »

Trademark:

Often animates the villain (Gaston in Beauty and the Beast (1991), Jafar in Aladdin (1992), Scar in The Lion King (1994), Alameda Slim in Home on the Range (2004))

Star Sign:
