Thomas Pierre "Tommy" Wiseau is a European-American actor, director and producer who is most recognized for his infamous film The Room. Despite how awful his work is, it has gained a large cult following which has allowed Wiseau to continue finding film work in niche roles and pursue creating his own projects.

Why He Sucks

  1. He is a terrible actor, writer and director who's oblivious to his actual understanding of how things work.
  2. His films, despite having a high budget, are of poor quality in acting, story and continuity.
  3. Rather than learn from his mistakes, he tries to hide from them by later stating that they were intentional.
  4. He tries to take down YouTube reviews criticizing his work, despite coming under fair-use, only for them to later return once they've been appealed by the user.
  5. According to The Disaster Artist, he kept on disagreeing with the film crew on how The Room should have been. If he'd listened to the film crew about how the film should have worked, then maybe the film would have been successful (although that also would've meant that the film wouldn't have been as hilarious...)
  6. Adding to this, he also allegedly mistreated his cast, such as forcing Juliette Danielle (Lisa from The Room) to do sex scenes even though she wasn’t comfortable, not allowing Greg Sestero to go and shoot other movies and did not even provide water for his cast or crew (an illegal move).
  7. His films usually use green screen for the outside instead of filming outdoors.

The Only Redeeming Quality

  1. "I did not hit her. It's not true. It's bullshit! I did not hit her! I did not! Oh, hi Mark."


  • Wiseau's age and exact nationality are completely unknown to public, as he has never revealed either. IMDb claims he was born in 1955, while Wiseau claimed in a 2010 interview he was 41, meaning he would've been born in either 1968 or 1969.
