IT is shaping up to be the accidental success story of the century.
About: With The Disaster Artist, James Franco transforms the tragicomic true-story of aspiring filmmaker and infamous Hollywood outsider Tommy Wiseau-an artist whose passion was as honest as his methods were questionable-into a celebration of friendship, artistic expression, and dreams pursued against insurmountable odds.
Struggling San Franciscan actor Greg Sestero (Dave Franco) strikes up a friendship with his eccentric but bold acting classmate Tommy Wiseau (James Franco), who writhes around the stage and scales the walls during his monologue.
James, you don't know what you're missing.
Mark Andrews wins the 2017 Mackey Award
The formal presentation will take place on Thursday during the Home Depot College Football Awards Show, to be broadcast by ESPN. Andrews beat out Wisconsin senior Troy Fumagalli and Penn State senior Mike Gesicki for the award.
The two head to Los Angeles to make it in Hollywood as actors but both find it hard to find work, so Tommy puts millions of dollars of his own money (this guy is full of weird surprises) to film his own script.
And tension begins to build between the two best mates.
Franco's performance precisely captures Wiseau's accent, behaviour and mannerisms, without making fun of him, and giving him three dimensions.
