CHICAGO – “Toy Story 3” has held onto the top spot at the box office for two straight weekends, and Joan Cusack – the voice of Jessie in the film – lent her star power to the debut of the doll based on her character. She appeared at the Disney Store on Michigan Avenue in Chicago, and was photographed by HollywoodChicago.com’s Joe Arce.

Cusack, a Chicago-area native, met fans and signed the doll during the appearance on June 16th. The character of Jessie in the film is the cowgirl equivalent to the Woody, voiced by Tom Hanks. Cusack also brought along her young sons.
