Best F(r)iends Written by Greg Sestero
Directed by Justin MacGregor
Starring Tommy Wiseau, Greg Sestero, Kristen StephensonPino, Vince Jolivette, Paul Scheer, Rick Edwards
Lionsgate | Rated R
Release date (Digital & OnDemand): September 25, 2018
Fifteen years ago, a cult classic of epic proportions was born. Tommy Wiseau wrote, directed, produced, and starred in The Room, a film that would earn the moniker of Best Bad Movie of all time. Thanks to his co-star and friend Greg Sestero‘s 2013 memoir The Disaster Artist and the James Franco Oscar-nominated film of the same name, Wiseau and Sestero have enjoyed a career resurgence. Their on-screen reunion takes place in the new film saga Best F(r)iends, written by Sestero and directed by Justin MacGregor.
Best F(r)iends will inevitably be compared to The Room due to Sestero and Wiseau’s involvement. However, as a film it is much better, with a cohesive plot, well-defined characters, and genuinely engaging interactions. It does feature some truly bizarre and original moments, and thanks to Wiseau’s off-beat acting style, there is a lot of humor, both intended and not. While I don’t think Best F(r)iends will garner the reputation and midnight-movie following of The Room, fans of the actors and that film will not be disappointed.
Back in April of 2015 we found out that a TV series based on the sci-fi comedy cult classic Galaxy Questwas being developed by Paramount Television. Then, later that same year came word that the project had been acquired by Amazon Studios.
Now Paul Scheer (The League, Childrens Hospital), who was hired to write the adaptation earlier this year, has shared an update on where the Galaxy Quest TV series stands and what he’s hoping to go with it. Continue below to see what he had to say.
An official trailer has been released for The Disaster Artist, the movie about the making of one of the best bad movies ever created, The Room.
We saw a teaser trailer for the movie back in July, which showed Tommy Wiseau (played by James Franco) hilariously doing multiple takes on one of the many memorable scenes from the original. This new trailer shows a lot more from the movie, including some more peeks at scenes which fans of the original will no doubt get a kick out of.

Written by Jackie Marcus Schaefer and Jeff Schaefer
Starring Katie Aselton, Mark Duplass, Nick Kroll, Stephen Rannazzisi, Paul Scheer, and Jonathan Lajoie FXX
Release Date: September 3, 2014
Describing an episode of The League to friends who don’t watch it makes you seem like an immoral, depraved, sexually deviant, sports crazy psychopath. In others words, it’s freaking hilarious. For five seasons, the comedy about a group of friends obsessed with fantasy football has pushed the boundaries of decency way off the proverbial cliff. Last season, the show’s first on the new FXX network, continued to find new and ridiculous ways for our heroes to squeeze life into their fantasy football schedules. Let’s review where our characters left off in season five.
