After three years, Billy Eichner has brought back his popular show Billy on the Street as part of the promotions for Universal Pictures’ upcoming romantic comedy Bros, starring Eichner and Luke Macfarlane. For the first part of the video, the comedic actor is joined by Paul Rudd as they try to convince random people on the street to watch Bros.
Bros is directed by Nicholas Stoller (Forgetting Sarah Marshall) from a screenplay written by Billy Eichner (The Lion King) as the first openly gay man to co-write and star in his own major studio film. The film is described as a “smart, swoony and heartfelt comedy about finding sex, love, and romance amidst the madness.”
Joining Eicher is an entirely LGBTQ+ principal cast, including Luke Macfarlane (Killjoys), Ts Madison (The Ts Madison Experience), Monica Raymund (Chicago Fire), Guillermo Díaz (Scandal), Guy Branum (The Other Two), Amanda Bearse (Married …with Children), and more.
The film is produced by Judd Apatow (Trainwreck), Stoller, and Joshua Church (co-producer Trainwreck, Step Brothers), while Eichner serves as executive producer.
