Zac Efron & his ‘Iron Claw’ co-stars on going nude and getting very, very intimate for wrestling biopic

The Iron Claw.The new movie from writer-director Sean Durkin (Martha Marcy May Marlene, The Nest) and indie studio A24, The Iron Claw is a biopic of the Von Erich wrestling dynasty, a family of athletes who became stars of the ring in the ’80s, but met tragedy after tragedy—it’s what’s been dubbed the “Von Erich curse.”Hitting theaters just before the holidays on December 22, it’d be the perfect movie to see with your family… if it didn’t sound so very sad.Still, expectations are sky-high for the film, especially among gays eager for a chance to see stars like Zac Efron (High School Musical), Jeremy Allen White (The Bear), and Harris Dickinson (Beach Rats) more jacked than ever and wearing little more than tiny, colorful wrestling briefs.Of course, they’re all playing brothers, so there’s not necessarily anything explicitly queer about The Iron Claw, but—like all things wrestling—there is a certain homoerotic appeal to the movie. And that’s a fact everyone involved seems to be keenly aware of because, otherwise, how do you end up with a promotional photoshoot that features all three guys seductively eating chicken wings in slow-motion?Like, come on! You know what you’re doing here, The Iron Claw!That finger-lickin’-good video is actually part of an Entertainment Weekly cover story that dropped this week and had the whole internet in a chokehold.
