James Franco Reads Classic Video Game Lines as Tommy Wiseau

Earlier this month, James Franco brought the behind-the-scenes story of The Room to life in The Disaster Artist by stepping into the role of the unexpectedly iconic Tommy Wiseau. One of the best parts of the new film is the way that Franco recaptures the essence of Wiseau’s voice and mannerisms, and while promoting The Disaster Artist, Franco was asked to repeat some of the most unintentionally hilarious lines in video game history while using his Wiseau impression. As you can see below, Franco made those awkward moments into comedy gold.

Franco was a guest on IGN’s talk show, Up At Noon, and he was given the video game lines without much context. But for a Wiseau vocal impression, that lack of preparation seems oddly fitting. Franco started off with one of the most infamously bad lines from the first Resident Evil: Barry Burton’s “master of unlocking.” From there, Franco tried his hand at Mario’s greeting and a very Wiseau-like guard from Skyrim.

After quoting Otacon from Metal Gear Solid, Franco noted that it already sounded like something that Wiseau would say. Apparently, there’s no context for Shenmue‘s “do you know where I can find some sailors” that won’t be funny. But Franco’s expression after saying the line made us laugh even harder.

Somehow, the “All your base are belong to us” line from Zero Wing wasn’t included in this segment, but we’d be all for a continuation of Franco reading famous lines as Wiseau. It’s truly the gift that keeps on giving.
