Interview: Tommy Wiseau of The Room

July 25, 2010 - 11:47 am

If you follow me on Twitter, then you know I’ve had a pretty good Comic-Con. Saw some cool stuff, got into a couple of cool parties, and sat down for press conferences or interviews with some people whose work I really enjoy. A few of the people I talked to this year were Simon Pegg, Sigourney Weaver, Guillermo del Toro, Zack Snyder (I’m hot and cold on him), Frank Darabont, Paul Bettany, Danny Trejo, Dolph Lundgren, and the folks from Tron: Legacy. But on Saturday, CityBeat‘s Dave Maass and I had a chance to interview Tommy Wiseau, the man behind the The Room, the strange late-night movie sensation that’s been referred to as the Citizen Kane of bad movies. It screened at midnight at the Ken, with Wiseau in attendance. The dude was at Comic-Con to promote The House That Dripped Blood on Alex, the new horror-comedy Web film he’s in over at Atom.com. It’s still in production now, and will launch in the fall. Here’s the thing, though, and if you’re a fan of The Room, you already know this–Wiseau is kind of a crazy person. In an entertaining, fairly harmless way. This is a short interview, but it’s totally entertaining. And leave it to cameraman Dave Maass to ask the guy about his belt.
