Dave Franco's character of Pete comes out gay in the upcoming sequel to 2014's Neighbors.

"I was so excited," Franco told Yahoo! News.

"Even though I'm not on screen for a significant amount of time, hopefully it will be very memorable," Franco said. "And of course I was excited to try something new with the character while still maintaining his essence."

In Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising, Pete is in a relationship with a man, played by 30 Rock alum John Early, and is about to get married.

In the first film, Pete had a bromance with best bud Teddy (played by Zac Efron). Director Nicholas Stoller said that making the character gay seemed like a natural decision.

"It was kind of all of us coming to the same conclusion," he said.
