!! OMG, BROOOO! Billy Eichner will lead first gay rom-com by a major studio !!

Bro! No, seriously, bro. Trust me, bro.

Universal Pictures released Wednesday the trailer for “Bros,” the first gay romantic comedy to premiere by a major studio. The gay rom-com was written by and stars out gay comedian, writer, producer and director, Billy Eichner, and will make the four-time Emmy nominated actor the first openly gay man to ever write and star in his own major studio film. “Bros” will also make history as the first major studio film to have an entirely LGBTQ+ principal cast!

Check out the brand new trailer after the jump!

  1. Hello-

    to Hector- though it lasted only 2 seasons HBO’s “Looking” is one of my favorite LBGT+ series ever.
    what exactly about it did you find “unimaginative”?

  2. oh for god sake give it a rest bigjoe

  3. Luke MacFarlane is waaaaaay too hot for Billy Eichner just as Luke was way too hot for Michael Urie; this looks as predictable and unimaginative as “Looking” and as boring and tedious as “Love Simon.”

  4. I want to see Bros, but it’s not the first gay Ron-com from a major studio. The first to have an all gay cast, I’ll give that, but it’s not the first gay romantic comedy. “Love, Simon is a 2018 American ROMANTIC COMEDY-DRAMA film directed by Greg Berlanti, written by Isaac Aptaker and Elizabeth Berger, and based on the novel Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda by Becky Albertalli.” – Wikipedia.

  5. Hello-

    so LGBT+ themed films will now only cast LGBT+ actors? that’s a bit much. that’s
    kind of like only casting Italian actors in a comedy about an Italian family.
    its called acting for a reason.

    • I get your point, but sometimes representation is needed. As a gay man, I don’t see a need for every roll (as you noted, it’s called acting for a reason) there are times where it’s nice.

      Actually, that’s not the problem. The real problem is that since mainstream Hollywood refuses to cast openly gay actors in straight roles, then at least give those actors the gay roles. Gay actors are already being denied certain roles even before they can audition. That is the central issue here. It is also the issue that no one, particularly those on the socially and politically liberal side of the divide wishes to talk about. Instead, they just reverse the argument and say that the gay community is being discriminatory against straight actors (!) who have been marginalized since the early days of Hollywood. Honestly, let’s face it, when it comes to homophobia, Hollywood can give lessons to the Church. However, I must admit that I’m rather in awe of their business model. Where else can an industry discriminate against an entire group of people and then have those very same people be their strongest financial supporters? And before ANYONE mentions Neil Patrick Harris, Matthew Bomer, Zachary Quinto, etc. as “counter examples,” please remember that they were cast in their het-roles before they came out and were at a point in the series/franchise where it was too late to replace them. Also, keep in mind that these actors have now been pigeon-holed into TV roles permanently and will never be cast as leads in blockbuster movies of any kind. But, I suppose that’s not necessarily a bad thing. After all, many of the challenging roles for an actor are on television and not in mainstream film.
