When she stumbles upon a nice guy, she faces a new, scary world in front of her as a mix of feelings induces her to change, but it's not necessarily for the best. Back to the movies in Bros, Schumer plays the role of Eleanor Roosevelt.

9/10 Guillermo Diaz - Scandal (2012-2018)

Guillermo Diaz's specialty seems to be courtroom and government stories, having recently played Bill Brewster in Law and Order: Organized Crime and Huck in Scandal, for example. Huck is his most notable role yet, a dangerous man with a troubled past as an assassin trying his best to change and care for his family.

Scandal was one of the most popular shows by the end of the 2010s, a thrilling story about a White House Communications Director who starts her own crisis management firm. Bros, where he plays Edgar, is a huge tonal shift in Diaz's career.

8/10 Debra Messing - Will & Grace (1998-2020)

Grace from Will and Grace

Debra Messing was part of many comedy movies but is better known for her TV projects, in particular Will & Grace, where she plays one of the two main characters. The show ran for 11 seasons and won over millions of fans, becoming fondly remembered as one of the best sitcoms of the 2000s.

In Bros, Messing is set to play herself, so fans might as well expect a Will & Grace reference here and there. The iconic sitcom follows lawyer Will and interior designer Grace sharing an NYC apartment and how their different worlds collide in a hilarious fashion.

7/10 Miss Lawrence - The United States vs. Billie Holiday (2021)

Miss Lawrence

Miss Lawrence became famous for hosting the popular talk show Fashion Queens back in 2013. Currently, Lawrence is a successful influencer and well-established figure in the fashion world, taking a promising shot as an actor in projects that aim at inclusion and other relevant topics.

In the Oscar-nominated film The United States vs. Billie Holliday, Lawrence played the singer's stylist, Miss Freddy. Bros is the second movie of Lawrence's career, taking on the role of Wanda.

6/10 Dot-Marie Jones - Glee (2009-2015)

Coach Sheldon Beiste talking to Will and Sue in the McKinley halls

Dot-Marie Jones joined the cast of Glee in season 2 and often stole the show every time she was onscreen. Jones' character featured in some of the most emotional moments of the latter seasons and became a key character by the end of the show.

Before making her mark as a renowned actress, Jones used to be a professional arm-wrestler athlete, which only makes her Glee character, Sheldon Beiste, more special: her character becomes the school's football coach and also goes through a delicate gender transition throughout the show, making Beiste easily one of the most engaging side characters of Glee.

5/10 Kenan Thompson - Kenan (2021-2022)

Kenan Thompson

Kenan Thompson has been in the cast of Saturday Night Live since 2003, which makes him the longest-tenured cast member in the show's history. Similar to the countless comedy legends who were part of the show at some point, Thompson is hilarious and offers truly distinctive humor, which inspired people to invest in a TV show of his own: Kenan.

The show was unfortunately canceled after two seasons but leaves behind a range of hilarious and incredibly likable characters in painfully relatable situations.

4/10 Jim Rash - Community (2009 - 2015)

Jim Rash as Dean Pelton.

Jim Rash is a constant presence in the comedy world and has been part of several exciting projects ever since the late '90s, but Community's Craig Pelton is Rash's best-known role. The eccentric Dean of Greendale Community College is a joke himself; always showing up in the most exuberant sets of costumes and announcing the most absurd things, the show just wouldn't work without him.

Alongside legendary comedians such as Michael Richards and Jim Carrey, Rash's physical comedy is brilliant and was a huge standout in Community, a style that prevailed throughout his career.

3/10 Kristin Chenoweth - Schmigadoon! (2021 - )

Mildred Layton

Kristin Chenoweth has been credited with several musical-related roles that range from stage to TV, including the fresh musical show Schmigadoon, which just wrapped up filming season 2. The Apple TV+ series follows a traveling couple who stumble upon a peculiar town in which everyone acts like they're in a musical.

The show's original idea was a big yes for critics, and Chenoweth appears as a recurring character, Mildred Layton, an exuberant lady with low-key antagonist energy. Blending comedy with music seems to be her specialty, and her presence in Bros will most definitely be a delightful surprise.

2/10 Luke Macfarlane - Killjoys (2015-2019)

Luke Macfarlane in Killjoys

Killjoys is one of those rare high-quality space adventure series that show up every once in a while, with a distinctive style and enthralling action sequences. It's much more conspiratorial than combat-driven, leaving a lot of room to develop each character's arcs and delve deep into their motivations and goals.

Luke Macfarlane plays the charming D'avin Jaqobis, the show's heartthrob but also a loyal and sarcastic soldier. Apart from his ironic remarks, there's not much comedy in his role, and fans can't wait to see his funniest side as one of Bros' two main characters.

1/10 Billy Eichner - American Horror Story (2011-)

Mutt Nutter American Horror Story

Billy Eichner has been one of the most popular faces in the entertainment industry ever since his comedy game show Billy On The Street became popular on the internet. Taking interesting roles such as Craig in Parks and Recreation and Billy in Difficult People, his acting career also began to skyrocket, revealing a promising comical star.

Eichner played various characters in different seasons of American Horror Story, Mutt Nutter, a puzzling nuclear scientist who longs for the end of the world, being one of the most memorable so far. Playing Bobby, themain character in Bros, Eichner's comedy roots will definitely provide fans with a great time. Eichner also wrote the film alongside Nicholas Stoller, so it will be an important project in the comedian's career.
