Kathy Najimy, Richard Riehle and Dru Bruin join stars Gerald McCullouch and Joe Conti in the comedy BearCity2: The Proposal.
BearCity2, the sequel to the 2010 film BearCity, will premiere Friday at Outfest, Los Angeles' LGBT film festival.
In the 2010 film BearCity, twink Tyler (played by newcomer Joe Conti) delves deep into New York's bear scene where he meets the man he's been dreaming of in playbear Roger (Gerald McCullouch, CSI: New York). After much sexual tension, the men admit their feelings to each other during the three-day festival known as BearCity.
Now, director-writer Douglas Langway and the whole cuddlesome gang are back with new adventures as they take a break from New York to throw a bachelor party for Roger and Tyler during Provincetown's Bear Week.
The sequel adds gay icon Kathy Najimy (Sister Act/Sister Act 2, Veronica's Closet, Drop Dead Diva) and veteran actor Richard Riehle (Fried Green Tomatoes, Bridesmaids) to the cast.
Making a special appearance is beefy, bearded male model Dru Bruin.
“I didn't think I was really cast-able in the role,” he said. “The confident sexuality was a new terrain for me as far as roles I had been given the opportunity to play in the past, so I had huge concerns. And let's face it, when you look at me – I ain't what you'd pin point as a 'bear'. But over the process of making these films I've learned that the bear community includes the entire animal kingdom: grizzly bears and polar bears and panda bears and black bears and muscle bears. As well as otters and wolves and silver foxes and gym rats.”
