Grey’s Anatomy favourite Jake Borelli is set to star alongside Queer Eye‘s Karamo Brown in a new romantic comedy.


The Valentine’s Day-themed The Thing About Harry is a road trip movie in which Borelli plays young gay man Sam and Brown stars as Paul, a gay guy who’s ‘exceedingly well put-together’ but ‘overbearing and pretentious’.

Commenting on the project, the film’s executive producers said in a statement: “It’s been an honour to partner with Freeform in making great television with LGBTQ+ characters as leads. True equality can only be achieved when you see yourself reflected in the movies, music and stories that paint our culture.


"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.

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