Interview: Tommy Wiseau and Greg Sestero

Back in 2003, Tommy Wiseau’s name became one of legend, but not for the reasons he originally wanted. His film The Room, one which he wrote, produced, directed, and starred in, simultaneously became known as one of the worst films of all time by critics, but a cult classic to fans. In the 15 years since, Wiseau’s film has enjoyed a consistent presence in midnight showings across the country. His friend Greg Sestero was his co-star in The Room and in 2013 Sestero wrote The Disaster Artist: My Life Inside The Room, the Greatest Bad Movie Ever Made with co-author Tom Bissell. That was then turned into an Oscar-nominated film directed and starring James Franco as Wiseau and his brother David Franco as Greg.

Fresh off a new generation getting to love and appreciate The Room, Wiseau and Sestero reunited for a project, written by Sestero and directed by Justin MacGregor called Best F(r)iends. Best F(r)iends is about a homeless loner (Sestero) who stumbles into a bizarre friendship/partnership with a mysterious mortician (Wiseau). I got to speak to both men about their upcoming film, their on screen reunion, and more.

Tommy Wiseau As Joker

It looks like Joaquin Phoenix will be playing Batman villain the Joker in the upcoming origins movie being directed by Todd Phillips. One person we know won’t be taking on the role, should a deal with Phoenix not be worked out, is The Room writer, director, producer, and star Tommy Wiseau.

But that doesn’t mean Wiseau doesn’t think he’s the man for the job. He’s tweeted about wanting to play Joker in the past, and now he’s made his very own audition tape to show how he’d do. He even got The Room co-star and The Disaster Artist author Greg Sestero to stand in as Batman for the video, which you can check out below.

The Disaster Artist Tommy Award

There’s been whispers that The Disaster Artist, a movie about the making of Tommy Wiseau‘s infamous movie The Room starring James Franco as Wiseau, could be a contender for the upcoming Academy Awards. And as any fan of Wiseau’s movie will tell you, a movie about that movie winning a damn Oscar, well, that would just be magnificent.

But while we wait to see if the movie will score any nominations, A24 has gone ahead and created their own award. It’s called the Tommy Award, and you (yes, you!) can win it. All you have to do is re-create your favorite scene from The Room…in public…and share it online for the world to see. So I won’t be winning a Tommy Award, and that makes me sad. But you (yes, YOU!) still can. Continue below to find out how, and to check out the latest trailer for The Disaster Artist.

This new trailer shows a lot more from the movie, including some more peeks at scenes which fans of the original will no doubt get a kick out of.

The Room's Tommy Wiseau Meets Mark Hamill In The Force Awakens

We’re nearing a year and a half now since Star Wars: The Force Awakens was released. The first spinoff movie, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story has since come and gone, and Star Wars: The Last Jedi is on the way later this year.

But that doesn’t mean the internet is going to stop coming up with little gems to entertain us. A meme has made its way around the ‘net in which the man, the myth, the legend himself, Tommy Wiseau, drops his “Oh, hai Mark” line from his infamous anti-classic The Room on Mark Hamill in The Force Awakens.

Now someone has taken that meme a step further, by taking the clip of Wiseau out of The Room and superimposing him into the final scene of The Force Awakens. The result is, of course, perfect. You can check out the video below.

Fans of Tommy Wiseau‘s so-bad-it’s-oh-so-good cult classic, The Room, will be thrilled to know that you have not seen the last of the movie’s offerings.

Talking to Entertainment Weekly recently, Wiseau confirmed that he has full intentions of releasing The Room not only on Blu-ray with lots and lots of behind-the-scenes features, but that he also plans on giving the movie a full 3D makeover, complete with a theatrical re-release.

Wiseau spoke about the conversion, saying “The process is very detail-oriented. But we want to do it because I’m obsessed about 3D right now, if you ask me.” He even touched on his own gluteus maximus and its three-dimensional inclusion, adding “My bottom will have to be in 3-D because I’m not changing anything, so you’ll be very close.”
