'Book of Mormon' Star Andrew Rannells: WWD Men's Week Feature!

The Book of Mormon star Andrew Rannells rocks a Polo Ralph Lauren blazer over a Cheap Monday cotton sweater in this new shot for WWD Men’s Week.

Here’s what the 32-year-old actor, who plays Elder Price in the show, had to share:

On being able to put his own spin to his character: “I got to be funny — and a lot of times you’re not supposed to be. I’ve certainly played those leading man or male juvenile roles, where you’re not supposed to make people laugh. [The producers] let me sort of explore that and what is funny about that guy and also to make him quirky and weird in his own way.”

On how his view on Mormons: “I have complete respect for what they’re choosing to do, particularly the guys who are stationed in Manhattan because they said, sort of very defeated, ‘Well, the only people who talk to us are homeless people.’ I ended up sort of counseling these two boys about living in Manhattan…I felt like I should take them out to dinner or something.”

FYI: Andrew also rocked clothing by Burkman Bros., Simon Spurr, and Dolce&Gabbana in his shoot!
