Let’s hear it for the Bros!
From the ferocious comic mind of Billy Eichner and the hitmaking brilliance of Nicholas Stoller and Judd Apatow comes Bros, a smart, swoony and heartfelt comedy about finding sex, love and romance amidst the madness.
Bros is the fourth LGBTQ romantic comedy by a major legacy studio, and the second to have an openly LGBT principal cast, after Fire Island (2022).
Eichner told HipHollywood exclusively it was a long time coming but worth the wait.
“Universal studios has been around for a century and this is the first film they’ve done where the cast is almost all LGBTQIA actors,” he explained. “That’s along time to wait, but we wanted to make a historic movie but also a hilarious movie.”
In the film Eichner stars as an emotionally unavailable New York podcast host who finds himself embarking on a relationship with a lawyer specializing in wills and estates, played by Luke Macfarlane.
Ts Madison, Miss Lawrence, Monica Raymund, Guillermo Díaz, Guy Branum and Amanda Bearse round out the cast playing a colorful and hilarious series of characters.
Miss Lawrence said the film marked a breakthrough moment for LGBTQ mainstream representation.
“It’s not movie for only the gay community, it’s a movie for the world and a new wave is about to happen.
“We’ve been forced to watch nothing but straight films and romantic comedies non-stop and now the rules are reversed and now what’s going to happen is we are gong to have a much better appreciation for each others art.”
Madison, who recently received the first-ever Trans Barrier Breaker Award during the Toronto Film Festival said she was really eager to take part in this groundbreaking film and auditioned for almost every role.
“I read for every part in the movie except for the bi-sexual part, because I don’t buy sex, sex buys me,” she joked. “I read for every part and finally Angela fit.”
Bros had its world premiere at the 2022 Toronto International Film Festival on September 9, 2022, and received critical acclaim from critics.
