The Room creator Tommy Wiseau hitting the stage with James and Dave Franco was a highlight of this year’s Golden Globes.
James Franco nabbed the ‘Best Performance by an Actor in a Comedy’ gong for The Disaster Artist, which was based on a book about the making of Wiseau’s now legendary cult favourite flick. Respect to Franco for inviting Wiseau – complete with trademark long hair and shades – up on stage to bask in some long overdue Golden Globes glory, but with mere seconds allocated to award recipients to unleash their acceptance speeches, he had to swat away the guy’s serious lunge for the mic.
Have you, like us, wondered what Tommy would have said?
Luckily the LA Times were on the case, nabbing Tommy afterwards to find out what Wiseau words he would have shared with the world.
“If a lot of people loved each other, the world would be a better place to live,” he told them. “See The Room, have fun, and enjoy life. The American Dream is alive, and it’s real.”
There’s no arguing with that sentiment.
As for James Franco’s portrayal of him, Tommy said, “He did such a great job, talking as a director and an actor. I think he make a big effort, which sometimes from the outside is extremely difficult to understand that. He did good with accent. His brother Dave did good as well. They really studied character. But he doesn’t know how to throw football, that’s for sure!”
The Disaster Artist is still hanging around several Aussie cinemas.
