This is such a conflicting scenario!
It is commonly accepted that The Room is the top worst film ever, and the movie has already been firmly established in cult film history. The highly criticized 2003 movie was written, directed, produced, financed by Tom wiseau who also happened to be the lead actor in the movie. Tom has become a well-known personality in the fandom.
Now, The Disaster Artist, a film based on the making of The Room, is doing well and generating popularity in theaters across the US, Wiseau has been in unprecedented spotlight. Casual fans looking at him on TV and connecting with him on social media suggests that this might be the time when Wiseau gets to enter the world of mega-budget blockbusters.
During a conversation with a fan on Twitter, the disaster artist disclosed that he would be keen to take up a role in either Marvel or DC movies.
“Whichever one hires me first,” Wiseau stated in reply to a fan question about his preferred comic book based movie company.
Frankly, who won’t be willing to feature in a superhero movie these days? Marvel and DC Films have made some of the biggest hits of this year and have huge fan followings that go far beyond the ordinary moviegoer. Keeping that in mind, it is not surprising to see Wiseau’s remarks.
However, if we think carefully, could this be the only time when Wiseau has a real chance of playing a part in one of the blockbuster franchises? We agree that there is nobody rooting for him to play the next big superhero, but, as far as weird cameos are concerned, there is always a scope. Why not use Wiseau who might not be expensive, but, would provide a few comic relief scenes?
In case Marvel or DC come to agree to this thought, Wiseau would be eagerly waiting for a phone call.
