Josh Gad says that he liked the wit, speed and pessimism that Chuck had which drew him to do the character’s voice.
In animation, the voice is almost everything that makes a character. Voicing animated characters has grown into full time jobs and they attract actors, singers, performers and have even become the claim to fame for many.

One of those iconic movies where the stars enjoyed a lot of attention from the fans and the audience for their voice talents is Frozen. With Idina Menzel and Kristen Bell doing the voices of the title characters including singing the princesses songs, one other character who got unprecedented attention was Olaf the Snowman.
Olaf’s optimism and ever so hopeful ideology made him a fan favorite and a role model. Josh Gad, who voiced him, made everything that Olaf said so believable and with such honesty and positivity that you cannot help but smile.
That’s why Josh had to be asked why he would choose to voice an Angry Bird after voicing such a positive character. The Angry Birds movie, which is about to hit theaters on May 20th features the flightless birds who take turns to slingshot to the green pigs island and take back the eggs that the pigs have stolen.
Among the three main characters is the pessimistic, quick-witted yellow Chuck. Josh has voiced Chuck in the movie. He said that Chuck is the exact opposite of Olaf. He’s quick-witted, cunning, smart, sarcastic and an eternal pessimist which was enough to attract Josh to do him. According to Josh, Chuck was the other end of the spectrum compared to Olaf and that’s why he knew it was his chance to portray some variety.
