We loved Russell Tovey as Kevin in Looking and now he’s back in a new gay role with The
Pass. Tovey plays a Premier League footballer who kisses his team mate, played by Nigerianborn actor Arinzé Kene, after a night of drunken debauchery on the eve of their big game.
The repercussions of that kiss, and the game that follows, will have emotional repercussions for both men, affecting their lives over a decade in a sporting world where image is everything. A sell out hit at this year’s Sydney Mardi Gras Film Festival.
