As literally the first out homosexual male to co-write and appear in his own major studio film, Billy Eichner has already created history.
The Universal Pictures film is making history with an all-LGBTQ primary cast. In addition, openly LGBTQ actors and actresses will perform all of the major heterosexual parts.
A major studio’s first gay romantic comedy, Bros, is described as a clever, swoony, and poignant comedy about two homosexual men (Eichner and Luke Macfarlane) who may or may not be fumbling towards love. Maybe. Both of them are incredibly busy.
Together with Nicholas Stoller, with whom he co-wrote Netflix’s Friends From College, Eichner co-wrote the script. Stoller will direct and executive produce along with Josh Church (Trainwreck), Eichner, and Judd Apatow.
What is Billy Eichner’s sexuality?
Billy Eichner has a queer sexuality and frequently found himself at the movies as he was still coming to terms with his sexual orientation.
He saw “Jeffrey and Billy’s Hollywood Screen Kiss” at the Music Box as a Chicago college student. Eichner later watched films including “All Over the Guy,” “The Broken Hearts Club,” and “Another Gay Movie” at the Quad after moving to New York.
He remarked that while some of them were excellent, some weren’t quite as good, “I always rushed to see them because I had a hunger to see our stories on screen.”
Eichner will now play the lead in one of those tales. Eichner plays Bobby Leiber, a jaded Manhattanite who finds himself falling for Aaron (Luke Macfarlane), a likeable jock, in the Universal film “Bros,” which opens in theatres on Friday.
The major concern in traditional romantic comedies is whether the couple will ever get together, but these contemporary homosexual men readily fall into bed with each other (and occasionally with guest stars).
Given that Bobby has never dated someone who is so atypical, and Aaron may seem aloof, the question here is whether they will actually stay together. Okay, bro.
On his television show “Billy on the Street,” comic actor David Eichner gained notoriety for yelling at bystanders about pop culture, but in real life, the 44-year-old is reserved and considerate. He hopes that “Bros,” which he and director Nicholas Stoller (“Forgetting Sarah Marshall”) co-wrote, will show that he is capable of much more than just yelling.
