A DOG'S PURPOSE

JOSH GAD (Bailey/Buddy/Tino/Ellie) brings incredible wit, humor and depth to all of his roles, from a summer-loving snowman to a wacky Mormon missionary.

Gad will next be seen featured in the live-action Walt Disney Pictures film Beauty and the Beast in the role of Le Fou, Gaston's sidekick. The film is set for release on March 17, 2017.

He recently wrapped production on Open Road Film's Marshall, about Supreme Court Justice Thurgood Marshall.

He was most recently found lending his voice in Sony Entertainment's The Angry Birds Movie, an animated film adaptation of the popular game.

Gad's upcoming projects include Paramount's comedy Heavy Duty, based on his original idea and STX's Russ and Roger, where he will star alongside Will Ferrell and play the role of Roger Ebert.

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.

Additional film credits include Sony Entertainment's Pixels, which also starred Adam Sandler and Peter Dinklage; The Wedding Ringer, which also starred Kevin Hart; Zach Braff's indie project Wish I Was Here; Walt Disney Pictures' award-winning animated film Frozen, where he starred as the loveable sidekick Olaf; the Steve Job biopic, Jobs; Thanks for Sharing, which also starred Gwyneth Paltrow, Mark Ruffalo and Tim Robbins; Shawn Levy's The Internship, which also starred Vince Vaughn and Owen Wilson; Ed Zwick's Love & Other Drugs, which also starred 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, which also starred Harrison Ford, Ray Liotta and Ashley Judd. Other voice credits include Ice Age: Continental Drift, alongside Ray Romano, Queen Latifah, Jennifer Lopez and John Leguizamo.

In 2012, Gad 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 has also lent his voice to Mondo on MTV's animated series Good Vibes and played the titular role on BBC Worldwide's Gigi: Almost American. He has guest-starred on hit series such as New Girl and Modern Family.

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

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