Fall TV's Rising Stars
Best known as Elder Price in Broadway's The Book of Mormon, Rannells also appeared as Hannah's gay ex-boyfriend on HBO's Girls. This fall on The New Normal, Rannells and Justin Bartha play a gay couple searching for a surrogate mother. "Justin Bartha and I play this very much in love couple who just wants to have a baby," he tells Vulture. "We're telling that story for the first time, in a way, for a lot of people, so I think there's a lot of responsibility there."
