'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!

I”am a Mormon What this guy is saying About missionaires is some what truth they go through alot but they do it because their love for the church and the gospel and I really feel like this show is making a joke out our beliefs and it’s not right at all why is it ok to make funny of other people beliefs ? Just beacause you don’t undersand the book of Mormon doesn”t mean you can disrespect our beliefs I bet you if this was a play based on the muslim religion this play would haven’t seen the light of day but it’s ok to make funny of the mormon
