James Franco Reveals 'Room' Star Tommy Wiseau's One Criticism of 'Disaster Artist'

James Franco recalled Tommy Wiseau’s reaction to watching “The Disaster Artist,” a behind-the-scenes look at the making of his film “The Room.” According to Franco, Wiseau approved of 99.9% of the film after its South by Southwest debut. He then backpedaled on his one criticism of the movie.

“It was just easier,” he told Variety at the Toronto Film Festival about staying in character as Wiseau. “How many times am I going to be doing a movie about the making of a movie where I’m playing the guy that also directed it and acted in it, and then I got all the prosthetics on.”

Dave Franco, Alison Brie, Ari Graynor, and Paul Scheer also stopped by the Variety Studio Presented by AT&T.
