The Disaster Artist, starring the Franco brothers and Seth Rogen, based on the making of the cult classic, The Room, comes out this December. Today, James Franco revealed that although initially, Tommy Wiseau didn’t like the idea of Franco playing him in the film, he came around. Franco said Wiseau wanted Johnny Depp. “But then, he got me. I think he was okay with me because I played James Dean early in my career. And Tommy, if you’ve seen him, looks nothing like James Dean. I mean he looks like a vampire that dyes his hair with a magic marker. He thinks he’s James Dean.”
This just gives everyone another reason to throw yet another “The Room” viewing party.
