When you think of the actors whose movies have grossed the most money, names like Tom Hanks, Eddie Murphy, Harrison Ford, Julia Roberts, and Tom Cruise come to mind. But I was thinking that right up there towards the top has to be … John Ratzenberger.
He was Cliff on Cheers, but has since voiced a character in all three Toy Story movies, Cars, Monsters Inc., Up, WALL-E, Ratatouille, and Finding Nemo. Sure, you never see him, but he’s been in a bunch of the biggest movies of our lives.
Just shows: Get with the right people, find your niche, play your part, be willing to not be seen if necessary, and who knows what can happen. And, by the way, you can do that too.
