James Franco just posted this image on Instagram of his portrayal of Tommy Wiseau in the upcoming film The Disaster Artist. If you're unfamiliar with Tommy Wiseau, he's the genius who wrote, directed, and starred in The Room. No, not the 2015 film that was nominated for a bunch of Academy Awards. I'm talking about the masterpiece released in 2003 that many consider to be the worst movie ever made.

The Disaster Artist, based on the book of the same name, is about the production of The Room. I always just assumed The Room manifested itself into reality because there's no way it was made by the hand of man. If you think I'm exaggerating, watch this clip from The Room and tell me this seems like something a human being would've made:

And here's the actual Tommy Wiseau for reference:
