Gay RomCom: Bros opens Friday

Luke MacFarlane and Billy Eichner filming a scene from Bros in front of A-House in Provincetown

I haven’t been to the movie theater in quite some time but Sergio and I plan to check out the movie Bros, which opens on Friday, September 30th.

Last August I was contacted by one of their casting managers and asked if I could help spread the word that they would be filming in Provincetown the following month and encourage interested people with “quirky personalities” to answer the open casting call. I wrote about it here. Sergio had the time off (and he has a quirky personality) so he answered the casting call and was selected for the filming.

I know there has been a lot of back and forth within the LGBTQ+ community about this movie, but I’m excited to see it. I love the feelgood and corny appeal of the RomCom movie genre, I love the idea of Provincetown being a backdrop for a few scenes in the movie, and I’m more than a little curious and excited to see if I can spot Sergio in one of the scenes filmed there.

If you’re unfamiliar with the movie, you can read more about the storyline and who is starring in the film here.
