Tommy Wiseau says he was not fed lines from his cast and crew while shooting 'The Room,' as portrayed in 'The Disaster Artist.'
It's a question that has been asked repeatedly online, and one we've fielded from friends and family members who've heard the buzz on the acclaimed new comedy “The Disaster Artist.”
For the bargain basement price of $19.99, you can purchase a copy of "The Room" on DVD and also receive a pair of Tommy Wiseau-designed boxer briefs otherwise known as "Twunderwear."
Where is Tommy Wiseau from? How old is he? And how'd he get all his money?
Do you need to see The Room in order to enjoy The Disaster Artist? It’s a question being posed across the interwebs as James Franco‘s new making-of comedy nears release. My answer: No, you don’t have to see The Room to enjoy The Disaster Artist, but you need to see The Room because it’s one of the worst movies ever made, and therefore so horrible it’s awesome, which is why it now rivals The Rocky Horror Picture Show as America’s favorite midnight screening.
The irony is not lost on Dave Franco. Or more significantly, it could be the film that would bring Tommy Wiseau, the inscrutable writer, director, producer, star — dare we say, auteur — of The Room, to the Oscars. “The best thing about going to the Academy Awards, if we have a chance, is getting Tommy Wiseau to the show,” Franco told Yahoo Entertainment at the Governors Awards (watch above).
James Franco is, by Hollywood standards, an eccentric artist. As you can tell from the photo Franco posted to Instagram (above) yesterday, he’s already having a ton of fun in the part. Franco is also directing the project and cast his brother, Dave Franco — also pictured with fabulous hair — as Greg Sestero, an actor who wrote The Disaster Artist book after befriending Wiseau and co-starring in The Room.
