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

RUSTYMON : I did not hit Dant, I did not!!... oh hi Batman!

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

hello yes : 2:40 genuinenly is scary goodness

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

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.

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

masterbaiter : F*ck! O_o ... he looks pretty f*cking convincing as the Joker. Seriously! Facial expressions are ... O_O hahahah.. maniacal!! If he just work on his body language, I CHOOSE HIM OVER LETO ANYTIME!

Angus Lamont : Am I the only one that found Tommy to be genuinely disturbing in this? He’d make a great Joker I think.

Caddicarus : What's with the hate on Sestero's Batman here? This whole thing is so clearly a joke, and his mockery of the Bale voice is perfect (those pauses are incredible). These two compliment each other beautifully. In a terrible and brilliant way. At the same time. I love this.

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

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

AcidDome : Holy shit. Tommy Wiseau as Joker is actually good. Who would've thunk it?

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

SmithDanigans[THoM] : "The scars... the makeup... the custom suit, I mean... what's going on here?"

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!

pipi dog : Still better than Jared Leto's Joker

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: https://youtu.be/st__OsuetyM

THE AMERICAN NIGHTMARE. : Tommy's actually a genuine Joker.

MrMario2011 : I'd watch a remake of The Dark Knight with these two.

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

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

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.

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.

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

Kelvin : Okay hear me out... Out there personality, weird accent... would Tommy Wiseau actually make a decent Hugo Strange?

SatrapaTV : Tommy's weirdness only adds to the mystery that is the Joker.

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

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

BroScouts : hahaha, funny story Bruce

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".

Albert Gongora : All right I won't lie I could see Tommy Wiseau playing The Joker but if he was better with his acting and cleared up his acts in a little bit because he has a look for it not going to lie but he's not really good when it comes to acting I think that's the only downfall to it

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

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

dimitreze : people talk about how bad Tommy is, but Greg Sestero is even worse

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

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

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

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

Kuso : Tommy makes a genuinely good joker lol

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

neilluminat1 : 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.

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

Sharp Design : I wonder if Tommy would do Joker with the "Badman" series. That would be an interesting crossover

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

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

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.

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

oldnbaschool : I can't believe these guys are for real 😀 wtf
