Remind Me BROS opens September 30th
As we approach the fall months and the massive slate of new films, it’s easy to get excited for what’s to come. One of the most exciting movies scheduled to land in AMC Theatres this autumn is BROS, a first-of-its-kind major studio romantic comedy that focuses on two gay men trying to navigate the wild world of dating, and find love amidst the madness. Starring Billy Eichner, who also co-wrote the movie alongside director Nicolas Stoller, the movie looks to defy the genre by offering something entirely unique, but also full of the love and comedy associated with the genre.
The movie also stars Luke Macfarlane as Eichner’s on-screen love interest, as well as a number of other stars who could very well become bigger stars following the release of the Judd Apatow-produced comedy. Before you watch the BROS cast in action this September, why not first meet the actors bringing the characters to life…
Leading the BROS cast is Billy Eichner, who is no stranger when it comes to appearing on screen, but this will be his first time leading a major motion picture. Despite this, the incredibly funny and likable actor and comedian has quite a few accomplishments under his belt.
Let’s start off with Eichner’s various movie roles that he has brought to life over the years, including family-friendly animated features and a pair of romantic comedies. These rom-coms include the Asthon Kutcher and Cameron Diaz romp, WHAT HAPPENS IN VEGAS, and SLEEPING WITH OTHER PEOPLE starring Jason Sudekis and Alison Brie. His voice work includes massive box office smashes like PENGUINS OF MADAGASCAR, THE ANGRY BIRDS MOVIE, and the 2019 remake of THE LION KING, in which he portrayed Timon.
Eichner also has a ton of TV credits including his side-splitting game show, “Billy on the Street,” and comedy staples like “Parks and Recreation,” “Bob’s Burgers,” and “New Girl.” He has also been a major part of several Ryan Murphy productions like “American Horror Story” and “Impeachment: American Crime Story.”
Playing opposite Billy Eichner in BROS is Luke Macfarlane, who has been an incredibly busy film and TV actor since appearing alongside Liam Neeson and Laura Linney in the 2004 biographical drama, KINSEY.
Over the course of the past 18 years, Macfarlane has gone on to appear in movies like the anthology horror film TRAPPED ASHES, the psychological thriller ROCK PAPER DEAD and the Christmas-themed romantic comedy SINGLE ALL THE WAY.
But, the lion’s share of Macfarlane’s acting roles have been on the small screen, with shows like “Brothers & Sisters,” “The Night Shift,” “Mercy Street” and “Supergirl” featuring performances of varying lengths. Fans of the Hallmark Channel will also recognize Macfarlane from his appearances in nearly a dozen of the networks’ made-for-TV movies.
Next up LGBTQ+ icon Ts Madison, who has made a name for herself over the past decade as being an exciting and passionate voice in the community.
In recent years, Madison appeared in movies like TRANS-ME and ZOLA before landing a role in the upcoming BROS. Madison has also had her own TV shows, including “The Ts Madison Experience” and “Turnt Out with TS Madison on Fox Soul.” She has also served as a guest judge on “RuPaul’s Drag Race.”
Monica Raymund is another talented actress who finds a spot in the BROS cast, bringing with her years of experience on the small screen.
Throughout her career, Raymund has landed major roles on everything from “Lie to Me” to “The Good Wife” and all three of Dick Wolf’s One Chicago franchise series, portraying Gabriella Dawson in various episodes of “Chicago Fire,” “Chicago P.D.” and “Chicago Med,” and she currently leads the Starz drama, “Hightown.” She has also had smaller roles on shows like “Law & Order: Special Victims Unit,” “Blue Bloods” and “Special Skills.” Her movie work includes ARBITRAGE, BRAHMIN BULL and HAPPY BABY, as well as several short films.
One of the members of the BROS cast with the largest bodies of work is Guillermo Díaz, who has spent the past quarter-century appearing in all sorts of movies, shows, and other specials.
Fans of the Dave Chappelle 1998 stoner comedy, HALF BAKED, will recognize Díaz from his hilarious portrayal of Scarface, but that is just barely scratching the surface of what the actor has accomplished throughout his career. Movies like 200 CIGARETTES, COP OUT, WARNING SHOT, ACROSS THE HALL and WITHOUT MEN have all seen the Díaz in various roles over the years. His TV work includes shows like “Scandal,” “Broad City,” “Weeds,” “Chappelle’s Show” and various titles in the “Law & Order” franchise, including the most recent addition to the property, “Organized Crime.”
Billy Eichner isn’t the only member of the BROS cast to have experience writing in the comedy world, as Guy Branum has also worked on a number of great TV shows in addition to his acting career.
Over the years, Branum has served as a writer on shows like “Awkward.,” “Another Period,” “Totally Biased with W. Kamau Bell,” “Chelsea Lately” and “The Mindy Project,” on which he also appeared in small parts throughout its run. Branum’s other acting gigs include shows like “Gay of Thrones,” “Hacks” and “Black Box.” He also appeared in the 2011 romantic comedy, NO STRINGS ATTACHED, which starred Ashton Kutcher and Natalie Portman.
Rounding out the main portion of the BROS cast is Amanda Bearse, who fans of a certain classic Fox sitcom will immediately recognize as soon as she comes on screen in the upcoming romantic comedy.
That role we’re speaking of is Marcy D’Arcy on the long-running “Married… with Children,” which ran on Fox for 11 seasons before calling it a day in 1997. But, that is just one part of the actress’ extensive filmography that includes everything from soap operas like “All My Children” to ‘80s horror flicks like FRIGHT NIGHT and a ton of other roles over the course of the past 40 years.
You will be able to see these actors in action, as well as several others, when BROS opens September 30 in AMC Theatres nationwide.
