He and Edmond are currently starting a new film based on Charles Dickens's "A Christmas Carol."

Personal life

Shaw was born in Los Angeles, California to television writer Rick Shaw and voice actress, Ellie Baer, the singing voice of Daisy Duck. Since his father worked on the television show The Nanny, Shaw was able to get a small role in one episode as a trick-or-treater. This led him into the film and television world, landing a few roles in television and doing multiple uncredited voiceover work in the video game industry, namely the popular Xbox 360 game, Mass Effect. In 2008 Shaw placed in the top 10 for a national Don Adams Impression contest for tickets to the premiere of Get Smart (film). He came in only as a runner up, though, somewhat ironically was seen at the premiere anyway.
