Jake Borelli and Niko Terho

Starring Grey’s Anatomy’s Jake Borelli and newcomer Niko Terho, the film follows two former high school enemies who are trapped sharing a car together on a long road tip to a mutual friend’s engagement party. A classic rom-com setup, and I’m already hooked!

Things start heating up when Sam (Borelli), who has been out since high school, finds out that Harry (Terho) is also gay and that they have a lot more in common then they originally thought. Like the title, the plot is a nod to When Harry Met Sally, one of the most classic of all rom-coms. According to a press release, the pair “begin to develop a deep friendship — with neither admitting a potential romance may be brewing — leaving them wondering if one road trip could change the rest of their lives.” I, for one, am fully onboard with all of this.

Sam is described as a “handsome, funny, neurotic, intelligent gay man” with “a scathing wit” and “an overly idealistic worldview” who was bullied in high school for being gay. Harry, meanwhile, is an “emotionally uncomplicated, promiscuous player” who “yearns for love, family and stability” deep underneath his player veneer. Opposites really do attract!

The cast also includes Queer Eye’s Karamo Brown as Paul, a gay man who is “exceedingly well put-together” but “overbearing and pretentious”; GLOW’s Britt Baron as Sam’s best friend; and Queer As Folk’s Peter Paige (who also directs), as Sam’s roommate.

In a statement, executive producers Paige, Greg Gugliotta, and F.J. Denny it’s been an honor giving gays the rom-com they deserve.

“True equality can only be achieved when you see yourself reflected in the movies, music and stories that paint our culture,” they said. “As young gay men in the 90s, whenever a rom-com opened, we would watch the leading lady fall in love, and imagine what it would be like if the boy was saying all those things to another boy.” Awwww same, but with lesbians.

“We’ve always wanted to make a movie — an unabashedly romantic comedy — that queer boys wouldn’t have to translate,” the team added. “It’s rewarding to take the genre to a new, all-inclusive level.” 

The Thing About Harry will premiere in February 2020 just in time for a very gay Valentine’s Day.

We are here for this film and will definitely be watching it on Valentine’s Day, especially if our own romantic holiday is a bust. What do you guys think of the new movie sound off in the comments’ section below!

Jakeem Thunder

Jakeem, like Courtney, is a teen superhero but with vastly different powers. In fact, he has the ability to summon and control a powerful genie, “Johnny Thunderbolt,” who can fulfill any wish he makes, but sometimes takes them too literally. Sources close to the show tell us Jakeem will be a key player in not only helping Stargirl normalize her double life as hero and teen girl, but a partner in crime-fighting as they explore their superhuman abilities together.

Justice Society of America

We are super happy to hear about Jakeem Thunder’s inclusion into the “Stargirl” series. We also hope they will use her to revive the Justice Society of America (JSA), a team similar to the Justice League of America (JSA) but decades older with older heroes like the The Flash (Jay Garrick), Green Lantern (Alan Scott), Doctor Fate, Black Canary, Starman, and Shazam; and younger ones like Stargirl, Jakeem Thunder, and even Black Lightning’s younger daughter, Lightning/Jennifer Pierce. As you may recall this character already exist on the Arrowverse, in The CW’s “Black Lightning” series, being portrayed by China Anne McClain. It looks like another crossover is in the works!

We love a good viral video show! Usually “America’s Funniest Home Videos,” “Jackass,” or “Ridiculousness” come into mind when we think of them. Thus, we hope this is the beginning of a new gig for Nick and new show for Fox. It will definitely bring some diversity to the content of the network. As you may already know Fox is largely dramas, a few comedies, animated series, and reality shows.
