  Biography  

 Personal life
Morris, the son of Greg Morris and Leona Morris (née Keyes), was born on April 4, 1959 . He is also the younger brother of actress Iona Morris. Morris is also a practitioner of Wing Chun kung fu under Sifu Hawkins Cheung.

 Career
Morris' first acting role was as a child when he appeared in the 1966 Star Trek episode "Miri". Star Trek was, at the time, shot at the same studio that produced Mission: Impossible, where his father was working. He made his feature film debut in Star Trek III: The Search for Spock in a small role and later guest-starred on Babylon 5, Star Trek: Deep Space Nine, and Star Trek: Voyager.

In the mid-1980s, he portrayed law student Tyrone Jackson on the CBS daytime drama The Young and the Restless. During a major storyline, his character used heavy theatrical make-up to appear Caucasian, in order to go undercover to expose an organized crime organization.

In the 1990s, Morris played a recurring character, the Johnnie Cochran-inspired defense attorney Jackie Chiles, on the hit comedy Seinfeld.

Also in the 1990s, Morris co-starred in the remake of Mission: Impossible as tech wizard Grant Collier (son of Barney Collier, who was played in the original series by Morris' real-life father Greg Morris).

Morris voiced the supporting role of Dr. Sweet in Disney's 2001 film Atlantis: The Lost Empire as well as its 2003 sequel, Atlantis: Milo's Return.

Morris played one of Will Smith's college professors on the NBC show The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air and played Dr. Clay Spencer on the then-UPN television show Girlfriends.

In the January 25, 2007, episode of the The CW television series Smallville, Morris also portrayed the DC Comics superhero The Martian Manhunter/John Jones, which is a recurring but small character in the series so far. He reprised that role on the show's sixth season finale on May 17, 2007, as well as the episodes "Bizarro" and "Cure" in the seventh season and the episodes "Odyssey", "Prey" and "Bulletproof" in the eighth season. He reprised this role in the ninth season episodes "Absolute Justice", "Checkmate" and "Salvation".

As a voice actor, he portrayed the villains Imperiex on Legion of Superheroes, and as the Immortal Caveman Vandal Savage on Justice League and Justice League Unlimited. He appeared on one episode each of the series CSI: Miami and Seven Days. Though largely unnoticed, Morris also was the voice of Paul the Apostle in Zondervan's The Bible Experience. Morris also made a cameo appearance as the late Miles Dyson in photographs in the television series Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles. He played the voice of the character 'Doc Saturday' in the animated show The Secret Saturdays. He also played a major supporting role in the PlayStation 2 game Ratchet: Deadlocked, Merc, one of the combat bots that accompany Ratchet during his journey. He also voiced the character of "Thurgood Stubbs" on the animated show The PJs, after Eddie Murphy's departure. He did several voices in the animated film Dead Space: Downfall as Hansen and Glenn. He currently plays Delroy Jones on the T.V. One series Love That Girl.
