Room Creator Tommy Wiseau Tries to Steal Mic From James Franco After Globes Win

James Franco won the Golden Globe for Best Actor on Sunday night for his performance in The Disaster Artist, which chronicles the making of The Room — a movie that became a cult classic after gaining a reputation as one of the worst films ever made.

The Disaster Artist, Franco plays Tommy Wiseau, creator of The Room. Wiseau was an aspiring (and perplexing) actor from San Fransisco when he created the movie.

Franco accepted the award alongside his brother Dave — who plays Room actor Greg Sestero in The Disaster Artist — and for our great benefit called Wiseau up onto the stage.

“The first person I have to thank, is the man himself Tommy Wiseau,” Franco said, as Wiseau attempted to snatch the microphone from him.

“Woah, woah, woah!” Franco said, pushing him away, before telling a story in Wiseau’s inscrutable accent:

“19 years ago, he was stuck in traffic, from the Golden Globes, he said to his best friend Greg: ‘Golden Globes, so what, I’m not invited. I know they don’t want me, guy with accent, long hair, so I show them. I don’t wait for Hollywood I make my own movie.'”

“I’m very honored to share this moment with him today,” Franco said.
