NFT: Tommy Wiseau

Pete in 'Vliet : 1/7/2018 9:17 pm
Here's a question for anyone watching the Golden Globes tonight.

If you are Tommy Wiseau how does James Franco and "Disaster Artist" winning awards, make you feel tonight?

It was kind of wierd seeing him on stage with an actor winning an award for making fun of him.
The whole thing is fascinating

His whole existence... fascinating. Hearing wiseau on stern had to be the greatest moment on radio (Sirius) ever. Saying he's weird or bizarre.... doesn't do him justice.
loves the attention

is my guess.
Pretty awkward moment there

Wiseau approaching the mic to say something. Franco looked kinda like a dick having to pretty much push him out of the way, but I guess he didn't have a choice.

Oh my God does he. He's got so little self awareness that as long as the attention is about him or his awful movie , doesn't matter if its mocking or belittling, he doesn't notice or care. He's a legend in his own mind.
Wiseau and Franco on the Stern show

talking to each other was one of the most surreal experiences of my life. He is one strange dude.
Eh pretty cool he's got a sense of humor or

doesn't care. People are way too uptight and take themselves way too seriously.

(Oh, and then they're the biggest jokes in the room heheh)

I guess it would have been nice for him to...

be able to say something, but after all, it was about Franco’s achievement. In any case, I’m sure the guy was thrilled to be able to be part of a big event.
B, go on YouTube and search for “The Room”.

This wack job Wiseau made the most unintentionally hilarious movie of all time. It’s developed into a cult hit, due to Wiseau’s incredibly funny bad acting. James Franco directed and starred in a film about the making of the The Room. Franco’s movie isn’t that great, but the original is pretty damn funny.

I think Franco the person might have gone for it, but Franco the producer didn't want to take the chance of Wiseau saying something stupid and ruining the bank they are going to make from the publicity.
Why would he not be ecstatic?

All that means is more money for him due to both the new movie and the old one it's based on
Fascinating

Almost immediately after the actor scooped up a trophy for "The Disaster Artist" Sunday, on a night the industry spoke out against sexual harassment, Franco came under attack.

Actress Violet Paley claimed the actor once sexually assaulted her and tried to lure her 17-year-old friend to his hotel room.

"Cute #TimesUp pin James Franco. Remember the time you pushed my head down in a car towards your exposed penis & that other time you told my friend to come to your hotel when she was 17? After you had already been caught doing that to a different 17 year old?" she wrote on Twitter.

Honestly, I don't think it's too broad to say that  
eclipz928 : 1/8/2018 11:05 pm : link
every man in this country has done something sexually inappropriate at some point in time - with severity and frequency of the behavior likely increasing depending on their own power and popularity.

Of course I'm not excusing it, just saying it may be a reality we need to come to grips with.

I think that's too broad, but even if it isn't there is also a non-fine line between sexually inappropriate and sexual misconduct and even less fine line between sexually inappropriate and sexual assault/criminal activity.

Most, or a lot, of the stories coming out are or would have been criminal, not simply sexually inappropriate.
It's the cynic in me ...  
Beezer : 1/9/2018 8:58 am : link
... but I do wonder how many of these stories coming forth today are real, exaggerated, etc. Not that I doubt these things happen(ed), or have been rampant for far too long. Just that, well ... people suck.
