Attention! The stars of Fellow Travelers and All of Us Strangers have teamed up for an epic crossover and we are not well.
On 17 November, social media was thrown into disarray when a photo of Jonathan Bailey, Matt Bomer, Andrew Scott, and Paul Mescal went viral on X, formerly known as Twitter.
In the dreamy snapshot, the four hunky acting talents are featured smiling in front of a balcony wearing stylish ensembles.
As of this writing, a location for the impromptu photo has yet to be revealed. But it’s safe to say that it was a welcomed surprise for fans, with many taking to X to express their hilarious yet relatable reactions.
One fan wrote: “The Fellow Travellers x All of Us crossover I have always wanted. Too many handsome men in 1 pic.”
Another user posted: “Um, HELLO, Matt Bomer, Andrew Scott, Jonathan Bailey, and Paul Mescal. I tend to dislike those “this is the new Roman Empire” style comments, but I think this actually might be it.”
Writer and podcast host Evan Ross Katz, who has since been credited for taking the photo, added: “This just broke my internet.”
Aside from the aforementioned photo, 2023 has been big for Bailey, Bomer, Scott, and Mescal, who are all starring in two of the biggest LGBTQIA+ projects of the year.
On 28 October, the highly anticipated limited series Fellow Travelers made its premiere on Showtime in the US and Paramount Plus in the UK.
Bomer and Bailey respectively lead the historical gay drama as lovers Hawkins Fuller and Tim Laughlin, with the series chronicling their “volatile romance” in the “shadow of McCarthy-era Washington”.

The official synopsis for the series reads: “Over the course of four decades, we follow our five main characters – Hawk, Tim, Marcus Lucy, and Frankie – as they cross paths through the Vietnam War protests of the 1960s, the drug-fueled disco hedonism of the 1970s and the AIDS crisis of the 1980s, while facing obstacles in the world and in themselves.”
Since its release, the show has received rave reviews from critics, earning a certified score of 94% on Rotten Tomatoes.
As for Mescal and Scott, the two acting talents have generated universal acclaim for their upcoming fantasy drama, All of Us Strangers.
Based on the novel Strangers by Japanese novelist Taichi Yamada, the film follows screenwriter Adam (Scott) who navigates a new romance with his mysterious neighbour Harry (Mescal).
However, things take a surprising turn when Adam comes across his dead parents (Jamie Bell and Claire Foy), who “appear to be living just as they were on the day they died, 30 years before.”
All of Us Strangers is scheduled for release on 22 December in the US and 26 January in the UK.
