Josh Gad quickly made a name for himself after he provided his voice to the lovable snowman, Olaf, from Disney's "Frozen". He went on to voice him once again for "Frozen 2" and will reprise his role for the recently announced "Frozen 3".

The actor went on to star as LeFou in Disney's live-action "Beauty and the Beast" and was even inducted as a Disney Legend at D23 last September.

Now, Gad can add yet another item to his resume as he was a "Jeopardy!" clue on a recent episode of the game show.

Josh Gad Becomes Disney Legend

Josh Gad was inducted into the Disney Legends earlier this year at the D23 Expo. During his acceptance speech, which was hilarious, yet sentimental, he admitted most of his inspiration came from the late Robin Williams as he watched him portray the lovable character, Genie, in Disney’s “Aladdin.”

But the ending of his speech is what had the audience up from their seats and roaring with applause.

“And finally, to the person who rejected me at Disney Casting Headquarters in Orlando, Florida when I was 18 years old and applying to be a Jungle Cruise Skipper — true story — please make sure to update my resume to Disney Legend Josh Gad,” he said before walking away from the podium.

"Frozen 3" Confirmed

Disney announces Frozen sequel

Disney fans are ecstatic as Disney CEO Bob Iger confirmed there is a “Frozen” sequel currently in the works.

“Today I’m so pleased to announce that we have sequels in the works from our animation studios to some of our most popular franchises, Toy Story, Frozen and Zootopia ,” Iger said during The Walt Disney Company’s Q1 Earnings Call earlier this month. “We’ll have more to share about these productions soon, but this is a great example of how we’re leaning into our unrivaled brands and franchises.”

Josh Gad immediately took to Instagram to react to the news, writing, “Back into the unknown… #frozen3❄️."

At this time, there are not many details surrounding the upcoming sequel, just that there is a sequel in the works. It is, however, expected that all four original cast members return to the franchise — including Idina Menzel, Kristen Bell, Johnathan Groff, and Josh Gad.
