Biography CLOSE THE FULL BIOGRAPHY

A talented actor-writer, Josh Gad charmed audiences on Broadway as well as on the big and small screens. Born Feb. 23, 1981, Josh Gad turned his high school and college dramatic successes into a screen career, scoring supporting roles in the Rainn Wilson comedy "The Rocker" (2008) and the based-on-real-life drama "21" (2008), as well as a series regular gig on the Kelsey Grammer/Patricia Heaton sitcom "Back to You" (Fox, 2007-08). Gad showcased his comic chops as a correspondent for "The Daily Show" (Comedy Central, 1996- ) before originating the role of the awkward but sweet Elder Cunningham in the outrageous Broadway musical "The Book of Mormon," for which he earned a Tony Award nomination and shared a soundtrack Grammy with his co-stars. After playing Jake Gyllenhaal's brother in the dramedy "Love and Other Drugs" (2010), he voiced the main character of the animated series "Good Vibes" (MTV, 2011) as well as a hedgehog in "Ice Age: Continental Drift" (2012). Gad's profile earned a massive boost when he co-created and starred in the White House comedy "1600 Penn" (NBC, 2012-13) as Skip Gilchrist, the ne'er-do-well son of America's First Couple (Bill Pullman and Jenna Elfman).

After starring in the indie "She Wants Me" (2012) and guesting as an increasingly unhinged suitor of Zooey Deschanel's Jess on "New Girl" (Fox, 2011- ), Gad played real-life Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak in the highly anticipated Ashton Kutcher-starring biopic "Jobs" (2013) before becoming an icon to an entire generation of children as the accident-prone but kindly snowman Olaf in the animated megahit "Frozen" (2013). After co-starring in Zach Braff's comedy-drama "Wish I Was Here" (2014), Gad appeared in the critically-derided comedies "Pixels" (2015) and "The Wedding Ringer" (2015). He also starred with Billy Crystal as themselves in the mockumentary sitcom "The Comedians" (FX 2015). Voice roles in "The Angry Birds Movie" (2016) and Lasse Hallstrom's "A Dog's Purpose" (2017) followed.
