 John Ratzenberger Biography

John Ratzenberger is best known for playing mail carrier "Cliff Clavin" on the sitcom Cheers. After reading for the part of "Norm Peterson" during the audition, he could tell he wasn't going to get the part. Sensing an opportunity, he asked if there was a part for a bar know-it-all - which the producers decided was a great idea. "Cliff" became known for his outlandish stories of plausible half-truths, irrelevant trivia, and ignorant misinformation, as well as "Norm's" iconic bar buddy.

Ratzenberger's work for Pixar, as well as his parts in Superman and Star Wars Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back, makes him the sixth most successful actor of all time, as measured by a total box office of over $3,000,000,000.

He has had a voice part in all of Pixar's feature films made to date. His roles include "Hamm" the Piggy Bank in Toy Story, Toy Story 2, and Toy Story 3; "P.T. Flea" the circus ring leader in A Bug's Life; "The Abominable Snowman" in Monsters, Inc.; a school of moonfish in Finding Nemo; "The Underminer" in The Incredibles; "Mack" the truck in Cars and Cars 2; "Mustafa" the waiter in Ratatouille; "John" in WALL-E; "Tom" the construction worker in Up; and "Gordon" in Brave.

Beyond his acting career, Ratzenberger has spoken out on a number of social issues. As a co-owner of the company Eco-Pack, he produced environmentally conscious packaging materials. He also co-founded Nuts, Bolts & Thingamajigs, a foundation aimed at encouraging young people to explore careers in manufacturing, and has worked to raise awareness of juvenile diabetes.

His newest project as a spokesperson for M.O.S.T (Mobile Outreach Skills Training) has given him the opportunity to speak to citizens around the country and give the unemployed a call to action. M.O.S.T is a fast-track program that prepares unemployed and underemployed individuals for frontline production jobs. He has appeared in television interviews with FOX Business Network, FOX News Channel, and MSNBC among many others to discuss his role with the only organization in the country guaranteeing employment to its graduates.

John Ratzenberger is currently in pre-production on a new documentary, the purpose of which is to awaken Americans to the shortage of skilled workers that threatens our country as a whole.
