News   Josh Gad Says He'd "Jump" at Chance to Be in Book of Mormon Movie
Josh Gad, who earned a Tony nomination for his star-making performance as the hapless Elder Cunningham in Broadway's Book of Mormon, says he would "jump" at the chance to appear in a possible movie version.

Gad made the remarks in a HuffPost Live interview. He said, “I would actually love to [be involved]. I would read the phonebook if Trey [Parker] and Matt [Stone] asked me to do the film. I feel an enormous sense of graciousness that they came to me with that project and allowed me to make my mark as Elder Cunningham, and I would jump at the opportunity to do the film. I fear that I may be a little old, but hopefully I can be involved in some capacity.”

No official plans for such a movie have been announced. The Book of Mormon continues to play to sold-out houses at the Eugene O'Neill Theatre on Broadway, and on tour.

In the interview Gad also said the state of of Broadway is "amazing" and gave props to Hamilton, saying, "It's the greatest piece of musical theatre I have ever seen."
