'G.B.F.' Gets Shocking 'R' Rating - Watch Exclusive Clip Here!

Check out this exclusive new clip from the buzz-generating new comedy G.B.F. featuring some of its hot young stars.

The movie follows what happens after Tanner (Michael J. Willett) is outed by his classmates and becomes the title “gay best friend” for three high school queen bees (Sasha Pieterse, Andrea Bowen, and Xosha Roquemore).

G.B.F. just received an R rating from the MPAA for “sexual references” and director Darren Stein is rightfully outraged by the news.

“I always thought of G.B.F. as a PG-13 movie, but we were given an R ‘For Sexual References’ while not having a single F-bomb, hint of nudity or violence in the film. Perhaps the ratings box should more accurately read ‘For Homosexual References’ or ‘Too Many Scenes of Gay Teens Kissing.’ I look forward to a world where queer teens can express their humor and desire in a sweet, fun teen film that doesn’t get tagged with a cautionary R,” Darren wrote on his Facebook page.

G.B.F. is in theaters on January 17 and also stars Paul Iacono, Molly Tarlov, Megan Mullally, Natasha Lyonne, Rebecca Gayheart, JoJo, Evanna Lynch, and many more!

Megan Mullally & Paul Iacono: 'G.B.F.' Trailer! (Exclusive)

Check out the new trailer for Megan Mullally and Paul Iacono‘s new film G.B.F., provided for an exclusive premiere on!

GBF tells the story of two closeted best friends, Tanner (Michael J. Willett) and Brent (Iacono). Brent longs for the spotlight and has a plan that will make him the most popular kid in school. He believes that coming out will make him instantly popular, as the newest must-have teen girl “accessory”: The G.B.F. Tanner on the other hand, would rather fly under the radar and graduate from high school without ever being noticed. When things don’t go according to plan and Tanner is outed instead of Brent, the two boys go from B.F.F.s to instant frenemies and the three most popular girls in school — queen-of-mean bombshell Fawcett (Sasha Pieterse), drama club diva Caprice (Xosha Roquemore) and sweet, Mormon good-girl ‘Shley (Andrea Bowen) launch an all-out social war to win Tanner’s status-enhancing friendship. Meanwhile, Tanner must choose between skyrocketing popularity and the friends he is leaving behind.

The film also stars Evanna Lynch, JoJo, Natasha Lyonne, and Rebecca Gayheart. It will be premiering at the Tribeca Film Festival on April 19, so make sure to check it out if you are in town!

Paul Iacono: I'm Gay

Hard Times of RJ Berger star Paul Iacono just revealed that he’s gay.

The 23-year-old actor came out publicly in an interview on Wednesday (April 11) with The Village Voice while promoting his new show , Kenzie’s Scale, where he plays one half of a homosexual college couple living in New York City.

“I’m rolling with the punches here,” Paul explained. “I was asked if I was comfortable doing gay press. I said ‘Of course.’ I didn’t think I’d be coming out. But why not now? I think it’s the right time to say something. It’s not about me, it’s about change and the work.”

Paul went on to say that growing up, he struggled with coming to terms with his sexuality. “I tried coming out a couple of times as a kid, from 13-14 on, and was always squashed on,” he shared.

Paul Iacono: Season Finale of 'Hard Times of RJ Berger' Airs Tonight!

Paul Iacono couldn’t be more excited for the season finale of his show, The Hard Times of RJ Berger, which airs TONIGHT (Aug. 23) @ 10PM ET/PT on MTV. Here’s what the 21-year-old actor had to share:

What can viewers expect during the final ep? Expect to have your minds blown as the characters hit their hardest moments ever. RJ Berger will be a definitively different show after tonight’s episode.

Congrats on season 2! How do you think the new season will compare to the first? The show takes on a different tone starting with tonight’s episode. In the second season, the jokes are smarter and the plots will be more serial so each episode’s events will directly affect the next one’s.

What’s it like working with creators David Katzenberg and Seth Grahame-Smith? David and Seth are two of the most sincere and humble director/writers I’ve ever worked with. Just last night I called Seth with an idea for season 2. They’re very open to our ideas and set the tone for a fantastic collaborative setting.

How was your summer? Did you do any traveling? I mostly hung out with my friends in New York and did a little theatre and continued my writing.

You turn 22 in about two weeks! What do you have planned? I’ll be with my best friends and my family. No greater gift than that.
