Josh Gad, star of the NBC comedy 1600 PENN, stopped by the Today show this morning to chat with hosts Kathy Lee and Hoda about his character on the show, the First Son 'Skip.' "Skip has his own wheel of gravity sort of speak, his own universe and he means well," he explained. "The beauty of the character is that he genuinely has his own sense of reality about things." Check out the appearance below!
Gad is the star, co-creator and executive producer of the new NBC comedy series 1600 Penn. The show follows the life of the fictional Gilchrist family, who just so happen to be the First Family of the United States. Josh stars as the President's son Skip Gilchrist, along with Bill Pullman as President Gilchrist, Jenna Elfman as the First Lady and Martha MacIsaac as the First Daughter. The series premiered last week on NBC and currently airs on Thursday nights at 9:30 p.m.
Josh Gad has also starred on Broadway in The Book of Mormon and The 25th Annual Putnam Country Spelling Bee.
