If you’ve visited at all since March, you know about Book of Mormon, the Broadway sensation penned by South Park creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone and Avenue Q co-writer Robert Lopez. You know about the great reviews. You know about the funny songs. You know about how it will most likely sweep the Tonys on Sunday night. And you know how its leads, Andrew Rannells and Josh Gad, are nominated against each other in the Best Actor in a Musical category. The dapper Rannells recently visited the EW office to chat about the competition (or lack thereof) between them, demonstrate his “If I lose” reaction face, talk up the musical’s writers, and explain why he won’t be looking at the audience during his Tony night performance of “I Believe.” Check out the exclusive video below.

Want a primer for the show? You can check out the R-rated Book of Mormon soundtrack, now available for only $1.99 on Amazon through midnight on Monday. Enjoy (when the kids aren’t around)!
