Biography

Most children of performers either do whatever they can to distance themselves from show business or they wholeheartedly embrace it and attempt to carve out their own niche. As the son of Greg Morris who for seven seasons played electronics expert Barney Collier on "Mission: Impossible," Phil Morris struggled with this dilemma before opting to pursue a career as an actor. As the middle child and only son, he began to entertain as a child, often reciting routines from comedy albums for his family. Following his graduation from high school, the tall, slender and handsome Morris worked as a production assistant on a never released film ("COM-TAC 303") that featured his father. ("I got paid, and I was meeting chicks. I had the whole Hollywood experience in six weeks," he told PEOPLE in April 1999.) Shortly thereafter he embarked on the rounds of auditions and bit roles.
