FROZEN II

JOSH GAD (voice of Olaf) brings incredible wit, humor and depth to all of his roles, from a summer-loving snowman to a wacky Mormon missionary.

Gad premiered his film "Little Monsters" at the 2019 Sundance Film Festival; the film also stars Lupita Nyong'o and Alexander England, and will be distributed by Neon. His latest projects include Sony's animated film "The Angry Birds Movie 2," opposite Jason Sudeikis and Bill Hader, and Disney's "Artemis Fowl," opposite Judi Dench for director Kenneth Branagh. He recently wrapped production on HBO's "Avenue 5" from creator Armando Iannucci.

He can be heard in Apple's animated musical comedy "Central Park," which tells the story of how a family of caretakers, who live and work in Central Park, end up saving the park. He will star opposite Leslie Odom Jr., Kristen Bell, Stanley Tucci and Daveed Diggs.

Gad's recent films include Universal's "A Dog's Journey," Open Road's "Marshall," Fox's "Murder on the Orient Express" and Disney's "Beauty and the Beast." Additional film credits include starring alongside Adam Sandler and Peter Dinklage in Sony's "Pixels," starring opposite Kevin Hart in "The Wedding Ringer," Zach Braff's indie project "Wish I Was Here," starring as Olaf in Disney's award-winning animated film "Frozen," "Angry Birds" and the Steve Jobs biopic "Jobs." His credits also include "Thanks for Sharing" with Gwyneth Paltrow, Mark Ruffalo and Tim Robbins; Shawn Levy's "The Internship," opposite Vince Vaughn and Owen Wilson; Ed Zwick's "Love & Other Drugs," with Jake Gyllenhaal, Anne Hathaway and Hank Azaria; Shawn Levy's "The Rocker," alongside Rainn Wilson; "21," opposite Kate Bosworth, Laurence Fishburne and Kevin Spacey; and "Crossing Over," with Harrison Ford, Sean Penn, Ray Liotta and Ashley Judd. Other voice credits include "Ice Age: Continental Drift," with Ray Romano, Queen Latifah, Jennifer Lopez and John Leguizamo.

In 2015, Gad starred alongside Billy Crystal in the FX show "The Comedians" about a veteran comedian who is reluctantly paired with a younger, edgier comedian for a late-night comedy sketch show. In 2012, he served as an executive producer, co-creator and star on NBC's family comedy "1600 Penn." He played Skip Gilchrist, the clumsy eldest son of the president (Bill Pullman), whose sincere attempts to do the right thing often go awry. Gad voiced a character on MTV's animated series "Good Vibes," and played the title role on BBC Worldwide's "Gigi: Almost American." He has guest-starred on hit series such as "New Girl" and "Modern Family."

Gad took Broadway by storm as Elder Cunningham in the Tony Award-winning comedy musical "Book of Mormon." Gad was nominated for Tony, Drama League and Astaire awards, winning the Outer Critics Circle Award. He made his Broadway debut in the Tony-winning production of "The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee."

After graduating from the Carnegie Mellon School of Drama, Gad began his career in the theater. He then turned his sights to comedy, co-founding his own company, The Lost Nomads comedy troupe.
