T.J. Miller voices Tuffnut Thorston in How to Train Your Dragon, How to Train Your Dragon 2, DreamWorks Dragons: The Series, and Dragons: Race to the Edge[1].


T.J. Miller is a comedian who voices Tuffnut. He brings depth to Tuffnut which would not have otherwise existed and brings new layers of comedy to a wonderful DreamWorks production. Although the character's ears and hair are no indication of the man himself, T.J.'s voice stands out distinctly with his improvisation skills and meta-style comedy.
