Billy Eichner ‘proud’ to lead LGBTQ cast in new film ‘Bros’

Billy Eichner says he could not have been prouder about the historic nature of the all openly LGBTQ+ cast of his upcoming film 'Bros'

Actor Billy Eichner says he could not have been prouder about the historic nature of the all openly LGBTQ+ cast of his upcoming film ‘Bros’, the first gay romantic comedy from a major studio.

“I could not be more proud or excited about the historic nature of the all openly LGBTQ+ cast of Bros. After queer actors have spent decades watching straight actors capitalize both artistically and professionally by playing LGBTQ+ characters, it is a long overdue dream come true to be able to assemble this remarkable, hilarious cast,” Eichner said.

He added: “And 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 openly LGBTQ+ ensembles to shine and show the world all we are capable of as actors, beyond just being the wacky sidekick, token queer or a straight movie star’s ‘gay best friend.’

“And beyond all of that, this cast is f#cking hysterical and you’re going to love them.”

Eichner is already the first openly gay man to co-write and star in his own major studio film, and now the Universal Pictures feature has made history by setting a historic all-LGBTQ principal cast, reports hollywoodreporter.com.

All of the principal heterosexual roles will be played by openly LGBTQ actors and actresses.

‘Bros’ is described as a smart, swoony and heartfelt comedy about two gay men (Eichner, Luke Macfarlane) maybe, possibly, probably, stumbling towards love.
