McSteamy's Wedding Wars
Which two of TV’s most popular doctors will be battling it out this Monday? ER’s John Stamos and Grey’s Anatomy‘s Eric Dane! The war will be on for McSteamy and McStamos in A&E’s new rom-com Wedding Wars.
Here’s the Wedding Wars plot in a nutshell: Shel (Stamos) is the gay brother and wedding planner for Ben (Dane), a political consultant to the governor. When Ben pens an anti-gay marriage speech for the governor, Shel goes on strike.
I watched Wedding Wars earlier this week and it was definitely a fun little film with two of TV’s high-profile actors giving solid performances. But beware that the film may seem stereotype-heavy. Take the opening scene for starters. It has Stamos‘s character hosting a pool party with blaring techno music and Speedo-clad men prancing around! But how did the actors feel about addressing the issue of gay marriage on the little screen?
John Stamos: “I thought the movie has a nice message. It’s presented in a spoonful-of-sugar way. Wherever you stand on the issue, it’ll be a fun movie to watch.”
Eric Dane: “I think the best way to deal with a heavy subject is with as much levity as you can bring to it. The reason being, is that it shouldn’t be a serious subject. This is a romantic comedy. One of the characters happens to be gay, and one of the plot twists is that he goes on strike.”
Wedding Wars airs this Monday, Dec. 11 @ 9PM ET/PT on A&E.
