Josh Gad Reveals 'The Book of Mormon' Was Filmed with the Original Broadway Cast

Josh Gad has some good news for fans of Broadway who might want to see more shows at home, just like Hamilton.

The Tony-nominated actor has revealed that The Book of Mormon was filmed with the original Broadway cast, though he has never watched the footage.

“A lot of people are asking me and yes, there is a tape that exists somewhere of the original cast of #BookOfMormon – we shot it in the last few months I was there but I have never seen it,” Josh said.

While Hamilton was filmed with the intention of making a film for theatrical release, it’s not known if The Book of Mormon was shot with the same intent. Most Broadway shows are shot for archival purposes and many recordings are available to be viewed at the New York Public Library.

The original Broadway cast of The Book Mormon featured Josh, Andrew Rannells, and Tony winner Nikki M. James. The show took home nine Tony Awards in 2011 and it has been a smash hit for nearly a decade now.

Josh Gad is revealing who threw him off!

The 39-year-old Frozen star joined Zane Lowe for Apple Music’s first episode of a new interview series, Songs For Life on Sunday (June 28).

During their conversation, Josh revealed the celebrity that famously threw him off on stage during Book of Mormon on Broadway.

“I have not ever officially [confirmed] that, but, god, I got nothing to lose now. It was the lead actor on a show called EntourageAdrian [Grenier]. And I was, let’s say, really f–kin’ pissed off. So Adrian, the next time you’re out there in a dark theater with a bunch of people onstage performing for you, I would ask for a little bit more respect. And I promise to show you the same respect when I watch you on a stage. All joking aside, I hope you’re doing well, Adrian! I still love you, I still love you very much.”

He also admitted his daughters wished he voiced this Disney star instead…

Josh Gad's Daughters Wish He Was The Voice Of This Other Disney Character Instead Of Olaf

Josh Gad has voiced a lot of animated characters, but Frozen‘s Olaf might be the most recognizable and loved – but that’s not the case for his daughters anymore.

The 39-year-old actor was a guest on The Graham Norton Show over the weekend, and revealed that his young daughters, Ava and Isabella, are over him being Olaf.

“My girls really wish Moana is their father,” he joked during the video chat. “They are somewhat over Olaf at this point.”

“I have to remind them that Olaf pays for their school, the roof over their head and those quesadillas they love eating,” Josh added. “So Olaf isn’t going anywhere soon if they want to keep eating and drinking!”

Earlier this month, Josh shared footage from him recording the brand new Frozen song, “I Am With You”.

Together, the cast happily recalled stories from the set of the film franchise, with lots of laughter and memories.

The stream was in support of No Kid Hungry.

“We all know the implications of COVID-19 are far reaching, but we may not realize how school closures and economic stressors are significantly increasing childhood hunger rates in the U.S. The problem is two-fold as new financial strains make it harder for families to provide meals for their kids and food access programs that previously provided in-school meals need to quickly shift the way they operate. To help address this crisis, we humbly ask you to support No Kid Hungry, a national campaign focused on ending childhood hunger in America,” Josh wrote.

“Over a month ago, I got a call from @alittlejelee that Bobby Lopez and Kristen Anderson-Lopez who wrote the music to both #Frozen films wrote a song about spiritually being together while all of us remain far apart. They sent the song and I immediately cried (of course),” he wrote.

“The video which can now be seen on my page or the @disney social pages is similarly bringing people to tears and reminding everyone that we are all together right now even though we are separated by great distances. I decided to shoot a video of myself singing the song the day I recorded it. Hope you enjoy this behind the scenes look at me singing #IAmWithYou which is the final #AtHomeWithOlaf short.”

Josh Gad Boards Disaster Thriller Movie 'Moonfall'

Josh Gad has signed on to star in Moonfall, from director Roland Emmerich.

THR reports that the 39-year-old Frozen actor will star as KC Houseman in the pic, who is described as “odd and unkempt in a way that suggests a high level of intelligence and an equally high level of disorganization.”

The description continues that KC is “a genius who correctly predicts that the moon has fallen out of its orbit, thus making the space-obsessed, profoundly unfiltered and eccentric man one of the most important people on Earth.”

Here’s Moonfall‘s summary: “When the moon is knocked from its orbit by a mysterious force and is on a collision course with Earth, life as we know it hangs in the balance and with just weeks to go before impact, a ragtag team is sent on a seemingly impossible mission to land on the lunar surface and save humanity.”

During quarantine, Josh recently reunited the cast of The Goonies.

Josh Gad Reveals How He Got The Cast of 'The Goonies' To Reunite

Josh Gad is opening up about how he got the cast of The Goonies to reunite for his Reunited Apart youtube series.

Talking with ET, the 39-year-old actor revealed that it started after watching the movie one night, and he says that it was “always been a dream of mine to reunite that cast. I sort of just decided on a whim that I’m gonna do this, and I started reaching out individually, one by one.”

“I started with Jeff Cohen, who plays Chunk, and he said yes. Then Sean Astin, who played Mikey, he said yes. One by one, they all said yes,” Josh explained. “From there, everybody just wanted to be a part of it, and it was remarkable. I don’t think they realized just how much joy it would bring until they actually shot it. They too are seeing the result, it’s tremendous.”

The reunion, plus future reunions on the series, will raise funds for The Center for Disaster Philanthropy’s coronavirus efforts.

So far, The Goonies reunion has raised about $23,000. If you haven’t watched the reunion, see it on JustJared.com now!
