What makes me happy is that Eichner is neither a teenager nor a heartthrob, which is refreshing because every single time they attempt these gay romantic films, they usually star teens or beautiful teens or both. I think that, despite his playing horribly unappealing characters in both Billy on the Street and Difficult People, his likeability shines through. I could see him being a gay romcom lead. Like Chimunky, I also wish this makes a shit ton at the box office, but it is still a romance starring two men. It is going to be a hard sell for mainstream America anyway.  Will this get a wide release or a platform to build buzz or what?

Universal Pictures has set an August 12, 2022 release date for Bros, the Billy Eichner-starring romantic comedy produced by Judd Apatow.

Eichner also starred on the Stoller-created Netflix series Friends From College. Bros is produced by Apatow, Stoller and Joshua Church and is executive produced by Eichner.


Eichner's other credits include the series Difficult People and American Horror Story, as well as the Emmy-nominated shortform series Billy on the Street. He is repped by UTA, 3 Arts and Ziffren Brittenham.


Stoller, whose feature directing credits include Get Him to the Greek and Neighbors, is repped by UTA and Ziffren Brittenham.
