Billy Eichner’s LGBTQ Rom-Com Bros. plays Natalie Morales, Symone and more

Bros, Universal Pictures’ upcoming romantic comedy, has just announced its lead cast. Hailed as “the first romantic comedy from a major studio about two gay men”, all LGBTQ casts participate in the previously announced romantic leads, Billy Eichner and Luke Macfarlane.

The recently announced cast includes RuPaul’s Drag Race winner Symone, Abby’s star Natalie Moralesand long The Real Housewives of Atlanta host Miss Lawrence. The actor is also on the cast Guillermo Diaz, who has appeared on shows like Scandal and Weeds, and Light through the shadow: An autobiography of a queen author TS Madison, who recently had a memorable trip in the 2020s Zola. Billy on the street and The Mindy project author Guy Branum has also been cast.

“I could not be more proud or enthusiastic about the historical nature of all the open LGBTQ + castings of Bros, “Eichner told The Hollywood Reporter.” After spending decades watching queer actors capitalize both artistically and professionally on playing LGBTQ + characters, it’s a long-awaited dream come true to bring together this remarkable, fun cast. “In fact, avoiding casting straight actors in queer roles was important to Eichner when he made it clear when Macfarlane was cast.

Eichner co-wrote the manuscript The five-year commitment writer / instructor Nicholas Stoller, who will also direct the film. The project makes Eichner the first overtly gay man to write and star in a major studio film, as he jokingly announced it Twitter back in March. Eichner will also produce with Stoller and long-standing partners Judd Apatow and Joshua Kirke as producers.

“While Bros may be the first of its kind in several ways, my real hope is that it is only the first of many opportunities for open LGBTQ + ensembles to shine and show the world everything we are capable of as actors, besides just being the crazy sidekick, token queer or a straight movie star ‘gay best friend.’ “Eichner added.” And on top of all that, this play is fucking hysterical and you’ll get to love them. “It’s definitely hard to argue with the last point, with the cast with some really impressive comedy information. This film is definitely one to look forward to.

Bros expected to arrive in theaters on August 12, 2022.
