How does a movie about one of the worst films ever made, get Oscar buzz? Someone let me know because I haven’t completely figured it out yet.
When I first saw the trailer for The Disaster Artist, my first thought was…no. A movie about a bad movie just sounded bad. But, as much as it pains me to admit it, I actually enjoyed this film. It was unique, odd, funny, cringeworthy and way better than I thought it was going to be.
While watching this film, I noticed several cameos from famous celebrities that made this whole thing even more ridiculous. Here are 5 of my favorites:
***Warning: Spoilers below!!!***
Did you think Tommy’s acting coach at the beginning of the film looked familiar? That’s because that was Melanie Griffith- Working Girl and mother of Dakota Johnson a.k.a. Anastasia Steele from Fifty Shades of Grey.
2. Bryan Cranston
This one is a little more obvious but Bryan Cranston was playing, well, Bryan Cranston. Sadly, the encounter with Cranston and Greg about a possible small role on Malcolm in the Middle didn’t actually happen in real life but hey, the scene wasn’t (breaking) bad.
3. Sharon Stone
Who better to play a stone-cold, Hollywood agent than Sharon Stone? Honestly, I didn’t recognize her at first but once I did, I thought she was brilliant for the brief role.
4. Zach Efron
How many people caught that the “thug” was Zac Efron right away? I should have figured that James Franco and Seth Rogen would add in their best pal somehow into this film.
5. Tommy Wiseau
If you didn’t watch till the very end of the credits, you would have missed the best cameo of all. Tommy Wiseau (the real one) has a conversation with Tommy Wiseau (James Franco) at a party and let me just say, it’s hilarious to see the pair interacting.
The Disaster Artist is playing in theaters now!
