The Disaster Artist Paul Scheer Interview

We’ve written at length about The Disaster Artist, James Franco’s terrific Hollywood tale that recounts the antics of the enigmatic writer/director/producer/star Tommy Wiseau and his 2003 movie The Room, which is a candidate for one of the best worst movies ever made.

A couple of weeks ago, I trekked over to Beverly Hills to attend the movie’s press junket and spoke with actor/comedian/writer Paul Scheer, who plays Raphael Smadja, one of four directors of photography who worked on Wiseau’s cult classic. We covered many topics, including how Scheer was able to watch actual making-of footage shot on the set of The Room and what it was like to be directed by James Franco in character as Tommy Wiseau. Scheer also weighs in on the sexual harassment allegations that have been tearing through Hollywood over the past few months. It’s a great chat that reveals some insight into the making of one of 2017’s best movies.

Galaxy Quest TV show

Back in August, we learned that actor/writer Paul Scheer had been hired by Amazon to write a TV adaptation of the 1999 sci-fi comedy Galaxy Quest, a movie about a group of washed-up actors who used to star on a Star Trek-style sci-fi show who are swept up into a real space adventure. This is great news – Scheer’s comedic sensibilities are a perfect match for that world.

Yesterday, I had a chance to sit down and speak with him about his role in The Disaster Artist. While that full interview will be published closer to that film’s release, he gave me an update on Galaxy Quest that fans will be very excited to hear. He confirmed that the show will continue the story of the characters from the movie, and it’ll include two separate casts whose adventures merge as the season progresses. Read on for everything we know about the Galaxy Quest TV show so far.

Galaxy Quest TV Series

Nearly a year ago, Amazon was working with Paramount Television on making a Galaxy Quest TV series come together with the original cast reprising their roles from the film of the same name. Unfortunately, co-star Alan Rickman passed away after that, and Sam Rockwell indicated that ended up putting a halt on any development for the series. But now the project is in development again and back on track to become a reality.

Amazon and Paramount Television have been working on the Galaxy Quest TV series for months now, and a new report has surfaced revealing Human Giant co-creator and The League co-star and writer Paul Scheer has been hired to write the script, replacing the previous scribe Robert Gordon. So what can we expect from this Galaxy Quest TV series? Read More »
