Matt Bomer and Andrew Rannells came close on Thursday’s “Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen.”
Long-time pals— who are currently featuring on Broadway in the acclaimed all-star production of “The Boys in the Band”— appeared on the Bravo late night show where they have shared a sweet smooch, soundtracked by cheers from the crowd. Their kiss came as the two actors played a game where they rattled off a series of questions to one another— all the while getting close until their faces were nearly touching. The questions weren’t tough, with Matt and Andrew wondering everything from “What’s your favorite musical?” to “What’d you eat for breakfast?” Ultimately, it became an evident a lip-lock was on the way as the two exchanged compliments, calling the other “pretty.”
The 39-year-old actor asked, “When was the last time you brushed your teeth?” to which Matt responded, “More recently than you.” By the time the game ended, the two shared an adorable smooch. The 50-year-old host joked, “Wow, that was amazing,” afterward turning to their “Boys in the Band” co-star Charlie Carver—who was bartending.
Andy said, “Can you guys leave? ‘Cause I want to play that game with Charlie!” Along with the 40-year-old actor, Andrew and Charlie, the Broadway production of “Boys in the Band” feature a cast of all openly gay actors— such as Jim Parsons, Zachary Quinto, Robin DeJesus, Tuc Watkins, Michael B. Washington and Brian Hutchinson.
The show produced by Ryan Murphy and directed by two-time Tony winner Joe Mantello, Mart Crowley’s ground-breaking play— now in its 50th-anniversary production— had helped sparked a revolution when it premiered in 1968 and thanks to its unapologetic portrait of the complicated lives of gay men. In a behind-the-scenes video which PEOPLE has premiered back in January, the 44-year-old Jim has explained: “What I like so much about Boys in the Band is how the play right now reads so much as ‘Look at how things have changed and look at how they haven’t.’”
