The Broadway star, actor, and voice artist perhaps is best known for his hilarious performance as Olaf in Frozen and Frozen 2 is also a huge fan of 80s movies, and as a way to fill some time, and raise some money, he created the Reunited Apart YouTube series. Over the past few months, he’s used the series to reunite cast and crew of classic films Back to the Future, Splash, The Goonies, and – for his one non-80s property – the Lord of the Rings trilogy over Zoom video calls.
