William Edward "Billy" Crystal is an American actor, comedian, writer, producer, director, and television host. He is best known for his roles as Miracle Max in the 1987 comedy-fantasy adventure film The Princess Bride, Harry Burns in 1989 comedy film When Harry Met Sally..., Mitch Robbins in the City Slickers film series and Jodie Dallas on the ABC sitcom Soap.
He was the first to be offered to voice Buzz Lightyear in Toy Story, but turn down the role afterwards. After seeing the finished film, he said the decision was the biggest mistake of his career. When Pixar asked him if he wanted to voice Mike Wazowski, he accepted immediately.
Pixar took some lines from the coffee table scene from the film When Harry Met Sally and used his voice in some early test animation footage before Tim Allen was cast as Buzz.
His films City Slickers and When Harry Met Sally were parodied in his appearance on Muppets Tonight.
During his Hollywood Chinese Theatre Hand/footprint ceremony in April 2019, Crystal was handed a small foot stamp in the shape of Mike's foot and he had it pressed into the cement next to Crystal's actual prints and signature written "Mike W." .
