Biography CLOSE THE FULL BIOGRAPHY

If one were to see the English actor Paul Collins as a gruff old congressman in "Evan Almighty," in which Morgan Freeman's God makes Steve Carell a modern-day Moses, or as one of Max Minghella's professors in the live-action graphic-novel movie "Art School Confidential," one probably would not immediately associate him with an eight-year-old boy with a top hat, glasses, black umbrella, and ability to fly. As an adolescent, Collins provided the voice to Wendy's bespectacled brother John in Disney's animated classic "Peter Pan." But this movie is but one credit in the actor's long career, which, at that point, had already lasted for almost a decade.

In the made-for-TV "George Washington II: The Forging of a Nation," Collins played John Adams...
