The Disaster Artist Scene Breakdown

Yesterday Tommy Wiseau scared the hell out of us with a video of him auditioning as The Joker for no good reason at all. Now today he’s providing some insight into the accuracy of The Disaster Artist when it comes to depicting the making of his infamous independent film turned cult classic, The Room.

For Vanity Fair’s “Notes on a Scene” video series, Tommy Wiseau breaks down the rooftop scene featuring James Franco (as the eccentric Wiseau) struggling to correctly remember his lines, resulting in an embarrassing amount of takes.

James Franco The Disaster Artist

I am not joking when I say that James Franco should receive serious awards consideration for his performance in The Disaster Artist, a film in which Franco plays Tommy Wiseau, the writer/director/star of 2003’s The Room, widely regarded as one of the worst films ever made. Having seen Wiseau speak in real life following a screening of his most recent movie at Beyond Fest earlier this year, it’s astonishing how perfectly Franco slips into that persona. Not only is the accent spot-on, but the physicality and the way he carries himself is a direct match. It’s a wonderful performance.

But here’s the best part. Franco, a prolific filmmaker who’s directed 30 movies or episodes of TV to date, also directed The Disaster Artist – and he directed the whole movie in character as Tommy Wiseau. You can read all about that in Franco’s own words and learn more about the making of the movie below.
