The holiday season is here and we got into the Christmas spirit by speaking with Philemon Chambers about starring in Netflix’s first ever queer-led holiday film, Single All The Way, dropping on December 2nd. Philemon stars alongside an incredible cast including Michael Urie (Ugly Betty), Jennifer Coolidge (American Pie), Kathy Najimy (Hocus Pocus), Jennifer Robertson (Schitt’s Creek), Barry Bostwick (The Rocky Horror Picture Show), and Luke Macfarlane (Brothers & Sisters). We asked Philemon about Single All The Way being his first feature film, what he hopes audiences get out of watching it, and lots more.
Single All The Way Synopsis
Desperate to avoid his family’s judgment about his perpetual single status, Peter (Michael Urie) convinces his best friend Nick (Philemon Chambers) to join him for the holidays and pretend that they’re now in a relationship. But when Peter’s mother (Kathy Najimy) sets him up on a blind date with her handsome trainer James (Luke Macfarlane)— the plan goes awry.
When we asked Philemon about what he hopes people get out of watching Single All The Way, this was his answer:
Love, peace, acceptance; when I say love, a lot of people confuse the word love with it being unconditional, because a lot of the times it’s on a conditional basis: “I love you in condition of” versus loving somebody unconditionally for who they are, for what they identify as, no matter if you’re lesbian, gay, bi, transgender, whatever you identify as – love. The film is filled with so much love and joy.
Philemon then goes into detail about the genuine chemistry between him and Michael Urie on camera.
