‘The Room’ Stars Tommy Wiseau and Greg Sestero Bring Their Unique Charms to a Stellar ‘Dark Knight’ Mini-Remake

Post-"Disaster Artist," the long-time pals are having fun playing in a different kind of sandbox. And it's good?

“Wiseau serious?” As Hollywood buckles up for yet another round of seemingly inevitable Joker-centric fever, “The Room” stars, creators, and bonafide BFFs Tommy Wiseau and Greg Sestero are eager to put their own, ahem, unique spin on two of the comic book world’s most beloved characters. The duo’s latest project: a mini-remake of “The Dark Knight,” complete with Wiseau as the Joker and Sestero as Batman.

Earlier this year, Wiseau teamed up with Nerdist to offer up an “audition tape” that sort of pitched the multi-hyphenate as the DCEU’s next big villain. While Joaquin Phoenix ultimately snagged the lead role in Todd Phillips’ upcoming “Joker” film, Wiseau is still out here touting his take on the Joker which, paired with Wiseau’s unusual syntax and trademark mannerisms, actually kind of works. (To say nothing of Sestero’s alternately silly and spot-on take of Christian Bale’s vicious Bat-growl.)

In a surprisingly stellar take on one of the film’s best scenes, Wiseau and Sestero face off, making a believable claim to the possibility that, hey, maybe this Joker thing does have some legs to it.

Check out Wiseau and Sestero’s spin on “The Dark Knight,” thanks to Nerdist, below.
