Bros Cast Discusses Making LGBTQIA+ History at TIFF With Gay Rom-Com – Collider

TS Madison, Dot-Marie Jones, Jim Rash, Eve Lindley, and Miss Lawrence talk about filming the rom-com, representation, and more.
We’re less than two weeks away from the highly anticipated release of Bros, the LGBTQIA+ romantic comedy that makes movie history simply by hailing from a big studio. Bros stars Billy Eichner (American Horror Story) and Luke Macfarlane (Killjoys) as two gay guys with very different personalities: While Bobby (Eichner) is more recluse and loves being by himself, Aaron (McFarlane) is a jock who’s always at clubs with his shirt off. As rom-coms go, the opposites attract, and they fall for each other. At the same time, the comedy chronicles the opening of a legendary LGBTQIA+ museum that features board members from all the colors in the pride flag. The movie is produced by Judd Apatow, who made Hollywood history with genre-defining comedies like The 40-Year-Old Virgin and Superbad. Bros is directed by Nicholas Stoller, who previously helmed Forgetting Sarah Marshall and Neighbors 1 and 2. Stoller pens the script with Eichner.
Shortly before the film world premiered at this year's Toronto International Film Festival, Collider’s own Steve Weintraub sat down with some of the cast at the Collider Supper Suite and Media Studio at Marbl to discuss to talk about the comedy and the glass ceiling it’s about to break.
The laid-back and spoiler-free interview featured most of the board members of the LGBTQIA+ museum of the story, including Eve Lindley (After Yang), TS Madison (Zola), Dot-Marie Jones (Glee), Jim Rash (Community), and Miss Lawrence (The United States vs. Billie Holiday). They all talked about filming, representation, never losing track of what makes a romantic comedy good, preparation, having fun on set, and more during a very fun conversation.
