Bros star Billy Eichner has revealed the hunky actor who almost appeared in the LGBTQ+ romantic comedy. On 30 September, the history-making film debuted in the US to critical acclaim and even earned an 89% fresh rating on Rotten Tomatoes.
The film, which is the first gay rom-com from a major Hollywood studio, has also been lauded for its entirely LGBTQ+ principal cast – including Jim Rash, Bowen Yang, Guillermo Díaz, Ts Madison, Miss Lawrence, Harvey Fierstein, Symone and Benito Skinner, among others.
Written by Billy Eichner and Nicholas Stoller (Neighbors), with the latter also directing, Bros follows singletons Bobby Lieber (Eichner) and Aaron (Luke Macfarlane) as they navigate their commitment issues and romantic feelings.
While the film has been praised for its landmark casting and heartwarming love story, Bros has also gained recognition for its array of cameos from some of Hollywood’s biggest stars.
