Interview: Tommy Wiseau and Greg Sestero of ‘Best F(r)iends Vol 1’
  |  @   |  

Back in 2003, Tommy Wiseau‘s name became one of legend, but not for the reasons he originally wanted. His film The Room, one which he wrote, produced, directed, and starred in, simultaneously became known as one of the worst films of all time by critics, but a cult classic to fans. In the 15 years since, Wiseau’s film has enjoyed a consistent presence in midnight showings across the country. His friend Greg Sestero was his co-star in The Room and in 2013 Sestero wrote The Disaster Artist: My Life Inside The Room, the Greatest Bad Movie Ever Made with co-author Tom Bissell. That was then turned into an Oscar-nominated film directed and starring James Franco as Wiseau and his brother David Franco as Greg.

Fresh off a new generation getting to love and appreciate The Room, Wiseau and Sestero reunited for a project, written by Sestero and directed by Justin MacGregor called Best F(r)iends. Best F(r)iends is about a homeless loner (Sestero) who stumbles into a bizarre friendship/partnership with a mysterious mortician (Wiseau). I got to speak to both men about their upcoming film, their on screen reunion, and more.

There’s been whispers that The Disaster Artist, a movie about the making of Tommy Wiseau‘s infamous movie The Room starring James Franco as Wiseau, could be a contender for the upcoming Academy Awards.
