This news is tearing us apaaaaart!
Tommy Wiseau's "The Room," a.k.a. the best worst film ever made, came out 11 years ago and has since inspired a cult following. There was a video game, a book and, of course, James Franco's forthcoming movie about the infamous project. But now, perhaps the best incarnation of "The Room" is among us: a mockumentary.
Robyn Paris, who played Lisa's best friend, Michelle, in the film, has launched a Kickstarter for a movie about the cast and their lives since the film. In a video for "The Room Actors: Where Are They Now? A Mockumentary," the cast (sans Wiseau, who is not involved in the project) describe it as a tongue-in-cheek mockumentary in the vein of Christopher Guest ("This Is Spinal Tap," "Best In Show").
Everyone from Juliette Danielle (Lisa) to Philip Haldiman (Denny) -- who looks super different now with a grey beard -- is involved. Although the Kickstarter page says Greg Sestero, who played Mark, is also participating, the actor confirmed to HuffPost Entertainment that he's not in any direct way. Sestero's only involvement is through the signed cast poster set as a reward.
If you want to know what happened with Claudette's breast cancer, you better take all your spoons to the pawn shop to help fund the project. Depending on how much they raise, it will either be a web series or a feature film. All we know is, if this doesn't get made we're going to feel like a lot like Johnny at his birthday party.
