Born in Greenville, North Carolina, Norris started acting at a very young age. Before becoming a full-blown actor, he studied at Eastern Elementary during his younger years, then at E.B. Aycock Middle School and later on at Junius H. Rose High School. During this time his career in acting was also starting to blossom.
As early as 1991, Norris became part of the television show “The Torkelsons”, and after two years he then appeared in more series like “Almost Home” and “The Young Indiana Jones Chronicles”. His early projects in television started his career in acting and also his net worth.
His breakthrough came in 1993 when he became part of the show “Boy Meets World”, in the role of Stuart Minkus that later on became an icon when the show became a cultural phenomenon. Although he only stayed in the show for one season, he left a lasting impression on the fans. He later on appeared in the shows last episode in 1998.
After “Boy Meets World”, Norris continued to be active on television, appearing in shows like “American Gothic”, and “The Journey of August King”, and TV movies like “A Mother’s Instinct” “Any Place But Home” and “Hope”, all of which contributed steadily to his net worth.
Although his career was getting stronger, Norris decided to take a break from acting and focused on studying. He attended Wake Forest University in Winston-Salem, North Carolina and graduated in 2004.
After this break from acting, Norris came back and became part of the show “One Tree Hill”, in the role of Marvin “Mouth” McFadden, and stayed in the show for all of its nine seasons. The teen drama became a hit and so did his character, thus helping him to resurrect his career and also raise his net worth.
Norris also starred in more movies late in the 2000’s, including “Surf School”, the hit thriller “Zodiac”, “Blood Done Sign My Name” and “Gone Girl”.
Today, Norris is still active in acting, recently joining the reboot of his show “Boy Meets World” entitled “Girl Meets World”, reprising his role of Stuart Minkus, and is now playing a father of a teenage kid.
In terms of his personal life, Norris has been married to Andrea since 2011.
Goldie Hawn hand-picked Norris for a role in her directorial debut, Hope (1997).
In the One Tree Hill (2003) episode #312 "I've Got Dreams To Remember", Lee's character Mouth can be seen holding a Wake Forest University brochure and folder before he goes to talk to his guidance counselor about colleges. This was most likely done purposely because Lee graduated from Wake Forest University in 2004.
He played Stuart Minkus on Boy Meets World (1993) in the earlier younger episodes. His character was written out as the show progressed, but Lee returned for the graduation episode four years later, saying that the reason he disappeared was because his classes were "on the other side of the hall.".
He was a recurring character on One Tree Hill (2003) for two seasons before joining the show as a series regular in season three.
There's definitely been a Brooke in my life. I think a lot of guys have a Brooke in their life. You know, that girl that you sort of look up to from a far. The kind who seems kind of unobtainable, yet she is just sweet enough that you always have that hope that she will come around. Yeah, I have definitely had that.

Throwing the brick was fun but I don't want Mouth to cross over into that stalker territory. His thing with Brooke is all a part of growing up. I relate to him a lot. I think he has a good head on his shoulders. I think he'll come out okay. [on his "One Tree Hill" character Mouth McFadden]
