She can be heard daily in the animated hits Rugrats or its spinoff All Grown Up.

In addition to 4 seasons on 24 as Bill Buchanan, James Morrison starred as McQueen on FOX’s cult sci-fi classic series Space: Above and Beyond and has guest-starred on countless TV shows such as Law and Order, Los Angeles, The Mentalist, Six Feet Under, The West Wing and the PBS production of Ibsen’s An Enemy of the People.
