European-American actor and filmmaker Tommy Wiseau, best known for writing, producing, directing and starring in the 2003 film The Room, has thrown his hat into the ring to join James Gunn's The Suicide Squad.
On Twitter, Wiseau, himself a fan of The Joker, posted what, at first glance, looks like the same colorful graphic Gunn shared to promote the full cast of the film. However, it quickly becomes apparent that Wiseau added his own name to the mix, placed right between John Cena and Joaquín Cosío.
Gunn shared the original graphic last week with the ominous warning, "Don't get too attached." However, some of Wiseau's followers have praised the edited image, believing his inclusion would make for quite the Suicide Squad film.
The movie known as The Room needs no introduction. Hailed as "the Citizen Kane of bad movies," the film is a quotable cult classic that put Wiseau on the map. The bizarre film's production was the subject of Greg Sestero's autobiography The Disaster Artist, which was adapted into a film that won writer/director James Franco a Golden Globe for Best Actor. Since The Room, Wiseau has enjoyed small roles in film and television and rejoined Sestero for his 2017 thriller Best F(r)iends.
Written and directed by James Gunn, The Suicide Squad is set to hit theaters Aug. 6, 2021. Several cast members from 2016's Suicide Squad will reprise their roles, including Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn, Viola Davis as Amanda Waller, Joel Kinnaman as Rick Flagg and Jai Courtney as Captain Boomerang. Also joining the cast are David Dastmalchian, John Cena, Joaquin Cosio, Nathan Fillion, Mayling Ng, Flula Borg, Sean Gunn, Juan Diego Botto, Storm Reid, Pete Davidson, Taika Waititi, Alice Braga, Steve Agee, Tinashe Kajese, Daniela Melchior, Peter Capaldi, Julio Ruiz, Jennifer Holland, Idris Elba and Michael Rooker.
