One of the upcoming LGBTQI movies we’ve been following is Bruno & Earlene Goes To Vegas, which not too long ago finished shooting and released a teaser trailer. The hope is it’ll be ready for festivals this summer, but to get people excited, a new interview with Scottish actors Ross William Wild & Antony Cherrie has been released (which you can see above – we’re pretty sure we’re the first place to get it!), and as you may have noticed, they’re quite the hotties!
The movie may not be finished yet, but Ross, Antony and their co-stars, Miles Szanto and Barrett Crake, certainly qualify to be a BGPS Crush Of The Day. If you need any convincing, take a look at the shots of them below.
And if you’re wracking your brain trying to work out where you’ve seen Ross William Wild before, it may have been in the gay short film Downing, or showing off his singing skills on the first series of The Voice UK (he also played Kenickie in a recent UK tour of Grease).
Antony Cherrie meanwhile is from electro pop act Johnny Lazer. In the movie he and Ross play a pair of ex-strippers who run away from their stripping troupe, ‘The Hot Toddies’, to find fame in a rock band, only to wind up in a dusty hamlet deep in the Nevada desert.
The blond Barrett Crake is Billy, ‘a sexually confused carjacker on the lookout for love’, while Aussie actor Miles Szanto is the titular Bruno, a mysterious, wandering intersex teenager who teams up with Earlene (Ashleigh Sumner) and heads off with her into the American desert, meeting a variety of unexpected people along the way.
Director Simon Savory told us, “It has a rich ‘Americana’ vibe to it, infused with a ballsy LGBTQI subtext and characters. There are no coming outs or sad stories about being gay. It’s positive but with a hefty dose of drama and humour that I hope audiences will find refreshing. I suppose you could say its main influences are ‘Thelma & Louise’, ‘Priscilla Queen Of The Desert’ and ‘Butch Cassidy & The Sundance Kid’ – I am a big fan of those movies. It’s a slice of the US of A shot by a bunch of Brits, basically, so I’m hoping that will prove it has that little something ‘different’ about it.”
