'The Room' inspires Greg Sestero's 'Disaster Artist' memoir
What do you do when you’ve appeared in one of the worst films ever made? Why, write a book about it, of course!
Okay, so that’s not what usually happens. But there is very little which could be considered “usual” about the infamous, so-bad-it’s-amazing 2003 film The Room, one of whose stars, Greg Sestero (“Oh, hi Mark!”), has now penned a book called The Disaster Artist: My Life Inside The Room, the Greatest Bad Movie Ever Made. Published by Simon & Schuster on Oct. 1 and cowritten with noted pop culture scribe Tom Bissell, the tome tracks Sestero’s involvement with The Room and his friendship with the film’s prime creative force-cum-onscreen love machine, the mercurial Tommy Wiseau.
