Golden Globe-winning film and stage actor Ewan McGregor made his debut on the big screen in the 1994 dramedy "Being Human." It only took two years before Ewan would land his breakthrough role in the gritty drama "Trainspotting," which garnered him worldwide acclaim. By 2001, the twinkly-eyed Scottish actor would land another major role as Christian in the dramatic musical romance "Moulin Rouge!" Today, Ewan is regarded as a major star, with credits on Broadway, London's West End and in some of the biggest blockbusters of the past two decades including "Star Wars: Episode I – The Phantom Menace" (and its sequels) and 2017's live-action adventure "Beauty and the Beast." Ewan's even spent time on television, most recently starring on the 2017 crime-thriller series "Fargo." Along with his title role in the 2018 family adventure "Christopher Robin," Ewan also starred in 2018's sci-fi romance "Zoe." In 2017, amidst rumors he had an affair with "Fargo" co-star Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Ewan and Eve Mavrakis — the mother of his four daughters — split after 22 years of marriage.

Jim Cummings is also the man responsible for voicing Tigger in 2018's "Christopher Robin."
Although you might not recognize Jim Cummings' face, chances are you've enjoyed one of his many characters' voices over the span of his 33-year career in entertainment. After landing a voice role as Lionel the Lion in the 1985 animated series "Dumbo's Circus," Jim quickly became known for his trademark deep voice that could easily transform to give life to a variety of animated characters. Over the years, Jim's voiced characters such as Shredder on "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles," the Tasmanian Devil on "Toon Marooned," Tantor on "The Legend of Tarzan," Gluteus on "Ozzy and Drix," Cat, the narrator and Bear on "Catdog" and Hondo Ohnaka (and more characters) on "Star Wars: The Clone Wars." Interestingly, his voice work as Winnie-the-Pooh and Tigger in 2018's "Christopher Robin" isn't his first rodeo with the characters. All the way back in 1988, Jim voiced both on the animated series "The New Adventures of Winnie the Pooh" — which he frequently reprised for TV movies and even video games. Jim has an astounding 18 voice roles in 2018 including as Hammerhead on the animated series "Spider-Man" and as Pete Sassafras on "Adventure Time." Jim's been married to actress Stephanie Cummings, with whom he shares two kids, since 2001.
