An American actor of short stature and abundant energy, Tony Cox has been featured in dozens of film and television productions, and is most widely recognized for his prominent role in the cult-classic comedy "Bad Santa" (2003). Inspired by acting legend and fellow little person Billy Barty, Cox decided to head to Hollywood in his youth. By the early 1980s, he was regularly appearing onscreen, albeit often in bit parts. His career picked up when he was cast as an Ewok in "Star Wars: Episode VI - Return of the Jedi" (1983), and he later turned up in two Ewok-related TV movies. Although not all of his performances were in high-profile productions, Cox managed to essentially corner the market on African-American dwarf actors, leading to steady work, including his major role in "Bad Santa," a series of spoof movies, and a supporting part in the fantasy prequel "Oz the Great and Powerful" (2013).
