My 5 Questions:
- The Disaster Artist is based on the book by the same name by Greg Sestero, was there anything in the book about making The Room that he got wrong or misremembered?
- The Disaster Artist had its premiere this March at South by Southwest, what do you personally think of the movie?
- Do you think James Franco's portrayal of you in the movie is true to life?
- Were you in involved at all in the making of the The Disaster Artist's script or at all during the making of the movie?
- What are your future projects?

I sure hope so.
To be honest, from the stories we here he was kind of a dickhead and a creep, but he was a genuinely nice guy deep down. I mean, he managed to track down Sestero whilst he was away, even though he told no one where he was going and tried to hide it from Wissaeu and send him a holiday card. That is simultaneously creepy that he managed that, but at the same time incredibly sweet.
I know right! There's more to him than one might think. It's why Greg Sestero puts up with him, because he's funny and a good guy deep down. He just seems very insecure about his past and about himself.
