Tommy Wiseau has been on a roll lately. The actor/director/man of many strange hidden talents is now set to make an appearance in the movie Best F(r)iends. Tommy is acting opposite his old on-screen co-star and 'best' friend Greg Sestero.
Best F(r)iends follows the adventures of two oddballs who want to make it but. Tommy, who plays an eccentric mortician befriends a drifter, played by Greg. The two start a friendship come partnership that takes them on a wild journey that includes stolen ATM machines, dead clowns and setting people on fire. The trailer for Best F(r)iends has some seriously dark undertones to take note of. But given Tommy's ability to make a serious movie seem like a laugh, Best F(r)iends looks like it's going to be a lol-worthy movie.
But will it acquire a 'cult film' status like Tommy's The Room? The ironic thing is that The Room was never meant to be a comedy film. Tommy's awkward acting style was what effectively made the movie an instant cult classic. The other reason The Room stood out so much, was because it was never meant to be a cult comedy film. Tommy not only acted in the film he directed and produced it as well. So with Tommy just acting in Best F(r)iends, the movie might just be missing his directorial weirdness. The Room was able to gain a cult film reputation because it features an unfiltered Tommy Wiseau.
The Room's cult status earned itself a biographical movie titled The Disaster Artist. The movie stars brothers James and Dave Franco as Tommy Wiseau and Greg Sestero. It chronicles the making of the legendary movie and was released last year. The Disaster Artist was nominated for Best Motion Picture – Musical or Comedy as well as Best Actor – Motion Picture Musical or Comedy. James Franco also won an Oscar nomination for his role in the film.
The movie was written by Greg Sestero and directed by Justin MacGregor. The movie will be broken off into two parts, with volume 1 airing on March 30 and April 2, and volume 2 releasing on June 1 and June 4.
