Josh Gad on Frozen 2, Beauty & the Beast and having ‘no f—ing clue’ why Drake rapped about him on SNL

Josh Gad‘s guarding some royal secrets.

The actor stars in two princess movies being kept tight under wraps: Disney’s live-action remake of Beauty and the Beast and the sequel to the animated hit Frozen. Though he insisted he couldn’t give any details about either project, Jenny McCarthy wouldn’t let it go Wednesday on Dirty, Sexy, Funny,

After making fun of McCarthy’s not-quite-French pronunciation of his character Le Fou, Gad said, “The movie’s incredible. Anybody who ever loved Beauty and the Beast, which clearly you didn’t as a child, is gonna love it.”

“It builds on the legacy of the original and takes it to the next level,” he added. “I’m excited.”

As for the plot of Frozen 2, Gad joked, “There’s like Disney lawyers waiting outside my house at all times.”

“The movie is going to be made. That’s all I can tell you. And it’s gonna be a sequel to Frozen, so there you go. You heard it here first,” he said, laughing. “Who knows? Olaf may have melted in between the two films.”

And Gad, 35, couldn’t tell us why Drake dropped his name throughout last weekend’s episode of Saturday Night Live even if he wanted to.

“Why is Drake obsessed with me and rapping about me on SNL? You know, I would like to think that I’ve touched him in some way over the years. I have no f—ing clue,” he said. “That was the most random thing I’ve ever seen, but it genuinely made me laugh — especially the callback kind of killed me.”

Dirty, Sexy, Funny with Jenny McCarthy airs weekdays from 10 am to 12 pm ET on SiriusXM Stars (Ch. 109).
