Thanks to James Franco and The Disaster Artist, Tommy Wiseau's awful cult classic The Room, dubbed the 'Citizen Kane of bad movies', has its place in film history.
After scooping the gong for Best Actor at the Golden Globes last night, James Franco waved up director and actor Tommy Wiseau onto the stage with him to celebrate his win with him.
‘The Disaster Artist’ just got a lot more interesting after actor and director James Franco revealed he directed the movie in character as legendary bad director, Tommy Wiseau. ‘The Disaster Artist’ tells the story of the making of ‘The Room’ – the ill-fated movie directed by the real-life Tommy Wiseau… and widely regarded as one of the worst film’s ever made. Essentially, Franco’s weird approach to the project meant that he adopted the role of Tommy Wiseau not just for the movie… but while he was behind the camera, too.
