‘Bros’ Trailer: Billy Eichner’s Meta Rom-Com Is a First with Its Entirely Queer Cast
Billy Eichner is creating his own meta cinematic universe thanks to Universal Pictures’ “Bros.”

The queer rom-com is comprised of an entirely Lgtbq+ cast, and centers on Eichner playing a podcast host who is tasked with writing a romance film that appeals to straight audiences. In real life, Eichner penned the script for “Forgetting Sarah Marshall” with director Nicholas Stoller, who also helms “Bros.” The film premieres in theaters September 30.
