Based on actor Greg Sestero's memoir of the same name, The Disaster Artist tells the story of The Room, a 2003 cult-classic film that has widely been called "the Citizen Kane of bad movies."
The original movie starred Tommy Wiseau, who also wrote, directed and produced, and who took The Room so seriously that he kept it in theaters long enough to be in Oscar contention, while almost everyone else treated it as a joke. The book gives Sestero's take — he served as Wiseau's co-star — on the madness behind the infamous film.
The Disaster Artist, which hits theaters Friday, marks the first time that brothers James and Dave Franco have worked together, as well as a reteaming of James Franco and Seth Rogen (The Pineapple Express, Knocked Up, This Is the End, among others).
Check out the list below to see who's playing whom in the new film.
