Nagai's older brother Hunter Nagai originally auditioned for Russell in Up. Director Pete Docter has said, "[a]s soon as Jordan's voice came on we started smiling because he is appealing and innocent and cute and different from what I was initially thinking." About 400 children had shown up for the auditions, but Nagai stood out because he wouldn't stop talking the whole time. Nevertheless, he was sometimes very shy and Docter found it difficult getting him to say all of his lines.
Nagai's character in Up is the first Asian-American figure in a Pixar movie. He also lent his voice to an episode of The Simpsons called "O Brother, Where Bart Thou?" as the voice of Charlie, an orphan who befriends Bart in his quest for a baby brother. The program aired on December 13, 2009.
