Spider Jerusalem : Unironically Wiseau has improved his acting a lot since The Room.

Léger De Main : Honestly, Tommy would be very effective as an antagonist in a silence of the lamb-ish kind of movie.

Devine Interventions : What if... what if The Room is just the origin story to The Joker?!?! What if the whole movie is his only memory of who he was and what led to him becoming who he is? Maybe that's why it's so weird and disjointed and doesn't make any sense. The Room isn't a bad movie after all, it's a look inside the mind of a mad man!

Kabuki Jo : the guy playing batman was awful but tommy wasnt bad

Munchies 2019 : "You just a chicken batman... Chip chip chip"

themightyflog : Wow I kind of feel really bad for Jared Leto. Jared Leto is officially the worst and ONLY bad Joker. This is crazy that Tommy Wiseau is better than Leto. But maybe cause he is actually quite weird in real life.

enn bee : Wow! Beat him up so bad he ended up in a hospital on Gurerro Street.

Bradlee Williams : He actually delivered some of those lines pretty well...I’m kinda impressed. He makes a pretty decent Joker😳bravo

graphicsgod : "I didn't kill them, I didn't kill them.. I did not. Oh hi Batman!"

pipi dog : Still better than Jared Leto's Joker

Zdeněk Schijvens : 2:40 genuinenly is scary goodness

Mr Temporal : Actually, the theme of "it only takes one bad day" to drive a man insane ties into The Room pretty well

el cucuy. : Tommy's actually a genuine Joker.

Sharp Design : Your facial hair looks familiar....Oh, hi Mark

La Zona Cero : 1:00 You've changed everything for ABBA

Josh Michael : "All these civilized people, they will eat eachother. Just like that, boom."

Ray Zhong : Tommy's Joker: You wanna know how I got these scars? My future wife was a drinker, and a f(r)iend. And one night she went off crazier than usual. She said I hit her. She said she didn't love me anymore. I didn't like that. I. Did. Nahht. So, me watching, she took her stuff downstairs, laughing while she left me. I turned to her and said, "Why? Lisa, why?" I destroyed my apartment. "Why? Why is this happening to me?" I stuck a gun in my mouth... "It's over. God forgive me." And... "Wiseau serious?" Based on this:

Scupple : There was a line in The Disaster Artist about how James Dean was a good actor because he knew when to hold back and when to "floor it", while Tommy believed that acting meant going full throttle at all times. That's really on display here.

I am the Walrus : That feeling when the guy who made The Room does a better Joker than the Oscar winning actor Jared Leto...

Purika : lmao. I'm cringing from Batman's voice. It's like a teenager's voice or a lesbian's 1:20

mrbigsly : Am I the only one who think that this is would be interesting Jocker, because of his unreadable emotions and unhuman expressions?))

Smith Wesson : Imagine Tommy meeting the voice of animated Joker "Oh hi Mark!"

WarPoodle 2600 : Yaaaaaaasss! I know this was meant to be a joke. But Tommy's genuine crazy makes for a fantastic Joker. Hell even his impossible to place accent and natural awkwardness just adds to a uniquely creepy Joker vibe. It's the same reason why Jack Nicholson was a great joker Ledger too. Just naturally crazy in a way. It's something in the eyes that can't be faked. And Tommy has even more of the crazy in my opinion. Casting people should take notice! Lol even his RL story around The Room "The Disaster Artist" reads like something the Joker would do for fun.

Catastrophe Cause : _That moment When Tommy is the good actor in the clip_

Methos : Did Tommy Wiseau just out-act the guy who plays BATMAN? Oh my god.. Tommy Wiseau is growing on me, this is perfect "realism-acting".

kakashi hatake : If he was actually acting serious this could actually work really well

Marsayde : “Don’t talk to me like one of them, you are NAAAAACHT”

nandosadi : 2:01 the original line ends “You think they will save you?” But Wiseau masterfully improvises a “No, they will not”, adding salt to the wound Batman is feeling right now and cleverly intensifying the tension in the scene.

Rohan Kishibe and 『Heaven's Door』 : Tommy being a weirdly bad actor kind of makes him improve in this scene because his acting is unsettling.

King Star : why dose the joker sound like a drunk version of christopher walken ahaa.

Luke S. : *Tfw Batman's delivery is worse than Tommy Wiseau's.*

Florida Dame : Is anyone else getting odd Cesar Romero vibes here?

Say my Name : 2:40 he did well here too

atomicdancer : Baht-man's not good - he's just a chicken, cheep-chip-chip-chip cheep-cheep

Andy Alger : This Batman voice ... nearly ruins it. Than Tommy starts to talk, and it's saved .. back and forth ..ugh

Game Generation : 1:07 **Room flashbacks intensifies**

Abstrakk : B A T M E H N

GoldenBadger : Tommy Wiseau is interesting. Not because of his acting (alone that is), but because he can add emotions to things that are considered non-emotional and at the same time take emotions from things that are considered emotional most of the time. Also, I like Tommy's Joker, it's more realistic and because Tommy is himself, he adds that real life goofiness to Joker as a character, that most actors have to ACT, Tommy does it naturally.

John Renier Asok : surprisingly batman was the weak link in this scene lmao

Bryan Barraza : hes like a foreign, drunk, more insane version of the joker

Suggarion 13 : Heath Ledger and Jack Nicholson would be proud. I sincerely enjoyed Wiseau's acting in this.

EpicGoreScream : Oh my he's great as the joker. Absolutely suits him

Smith Wesson : He's the Joker we deserve, just not the one we need right now...............ah screw it, I'm sold

PlasmaKong2 : Wiseau serious?

Revan Ruler : tommy wiseau is actually better than jared leto, that's hilarious

SovietXred2 : I think he actually fits well for the role Nolan and Ledger wanted for the Joker in the Dark Knight movie as they wanted a realistic version of the character and someone as sociopathic, unpredictable and manic as the Joker would in reality act more like Tommy's adaptation than anyone's

MrDrProfessorScience : He definitely at the very least needs to become a voice actor

Christopher Winspear : Scene starts.....Tommy - 'Oh hi dark'.

Crisdean Mackinnon : They should get Tommy wiseau to cameo in the upcoming Joaquin phoenix joker movie
