“The Disaster Artist” follows the life of actor/director Tommy Wiseau (Franco) and the making of Wiseau’s film “The Room”, which has been dubbed “the best worst movie of all time.”

“He did stay in character the whole time we were making the movie as Tommy. He would speak in the Tommy voice and he was in prosthetic makeup while directing the movie,” Seth told host Seth. “It’s probably the first time anyone’s directed a movie in character. And in the movie he’s directing a movie so it’s also weird.”

Adding, Franco would frighten those who came to visit the movie on location, “Yeah, it was really strange. I would warn everybody who came on set.”

“The Disaster Artist” is in theatres now.
