    I think Tommy should be the poster boy for why you shouldn't do drugs 😂

    Most bizarre thing about this vid is when James Franco talks to Wiseau he slips into his Wiseau impression.

    I got this feeling that James Franco is going to get some awards for the acting or that The Disaster Artist is going to get some awards next year and for the rest of his life Tommy Wiseau is going to be bragging at parties or midnight screenings of "The Room". Saying things like "Did you hear that MY movie got nominated for Academy Award?" No Tommy, THEIR movie about your movie got nominated.

    I still understand why they're making a trash movie about another trash movie? Even commenting about it is weird.

    Whenever I see that guy (Tommy Wiseau) I expect him to drop his wig, his glasses and yell

    "Ta-dah! Fooled you all, I'm actually an actor from Oregon! I've been playing this wannabe alien on and off since the late 80's and nobody has called me on it! Such a thrill, people!"

    One of the coolest moments for me was 2006, I was invited to James house, our girlfriends fell asleep on the couch and him and I watched "play misty for me" just breaking down the movie and talking about movies in general. Cool night.

  • Дмитрий Киселёв

    What is up with all these The Room jokes and quotes? Grow up, guys. It's really cheap to make fun of people's work like that. Really cheap cheap cheapcheapcheap

    Anyone else notice this...or is it just me, is James still method acting here or is he talking like that for Tommy? He'll remove surplus words from his vocab like "I never give away secret" instead of "I'll never give away any secrets" - he's basically talking like Tommy to Tommy haha

    Tommy is the one who gets the last laugh now!  His awful movie has gotten so much attention and look at him now, he's hanging out with James and Dave Franco!  This creates an opportunity for these guys to make it into bigger films!  I wish the best for Tommy and the other actors that were a part The Room!

    lol I don't think I've ever been as excited to see a movie as I am for this one! The only downside is that I've enjoyed years of being the guy who introduced The Room to friends, family, etc. and then subsequently got to answer all the inevitable questions about it afterwards (thanks to all the insight from Greg Sistero's awesome book!), but I won't have that opportunity anymore. Far more people are going to be introduced to the world of Tommy Wiseau because of The Disaster Artist! That's a good thing, tho...I'm not complaining. I just now have to discover the next Tommy lol

    Tommy loves James Dean. So for James Franco, who played James Dean in a movie, to play Tommy in a movie, I have to believe that Tommy was really excited by that.
