Through the years, Morris has starred in movies with big names like Vanessa Redgrave, Liam Neeson, Susan Sarandon, Reese Witherspoon, Steve Carell, and Jennifer Aniston.  He's definitely no rookie, even though Hallmark has only recently cast him in both A Royal Queens Christmas and The Presence of Love .
