In 2013, Disney released their new new animated feature, Frozen. Fontana plays the villain, Hans in the movie. For his audition for the role, he sang I Feel Pretty from West Side Story, but he tweaked the lyrics in a boastful, yet comical way.


  • Fontana had an unusual audition for Frozen. He sang "I Feel Pretty" from the musical West Side Story for his audition, though he altered the lyrics. Of this, he quotes, "So basically, all that they told me about the character was he's super confident, perhaps overly confident, he needs to be able to sing with a 'Broadway sound' and he's really good with women, but he may have a dark side. I came into the sound studio and I was very nervous and I sang this."[citation needed]
  • Fontana sang live with his co-star, Kristen Bell at a private event. They sang "Love is an Open Door".
