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?
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.
