336: 'The Disaster Artist' Starring James Franco, Dave Franco, Seth Rogen

Oh hi, listeners! It’s the true story of an all-American guy that you’ve been waiting for! ‘The Disaster Artist,’ based on a book by Greg Sestero and Tom Bissell, is the story behind the making of “the Citizen Kane of bad movies” – ‘The Room.’ And without the mysterious Tommy Wiseau, none of it would have ever happened.

We review James Franco’s big screen adaptation of the fascinating story, and discuss his roles both behind and in front of the camera. Kevin suggests that everyone talks in Tommy Wiseau accents, but Tom quickly shuts that idea down. And Joey Butts tells us what it was like watching ‘The Room’ for the first time – just this week!

It’s Reel Spoilers 336. What a story!
