Videos: Trey Parker-Matt Stone's The Book of Mormon on Tony awards, 60 Minutes

Talk about staying power. This week, 60 Minutes aired immediately before the Tony Awards -- but rather than conduct an interview with a new nominee, the venerable program rebroadcast a September interview with Colorado alums Trey Parker and Matt Stone. And then, the awards themselves kicked off with a star-studded scene from The Book of Mormon, still Broadway's hottest show more than a year later.

Look below to see the 60 Minutes interview (featuring more Broncos logos than the typical game), plus a web extra in which Parker and Stone detail how they meet South Park's crazy weekly deadline and that highly entertaining opening number.
