Billy Eichner Sets Historic LGBTQ Cast (With a Twist) for Universal’s ‘Bros’
Written by Eichner and Nicholas Stoller, it’s the first major studio film to feature an all-LGBTQ principal cast playing heterosexual roles.
Bros, the first gay romantic comedy from a major studio, is described as a smart, swoony and heartfelt comedy about two gay men (Eichner, Luke Macfarlane) maybe, possibly, probably, stumbling toward love. Maybe. They’re both very busy. Eichner co-wrote the script alongside Nicholas Stoller, with whom he worked on Netflix’s Friends From College. Stoller will direct and exec produce alongside Judd Apatow, Eichner and Josh Church (Trainwreck).
