Reversal of fortune? Dark cloud over James Franco after actress' innuendo

Reversal of fortune? Dark cloud over James Franco after actress' innuendo

Franco shut that down pretty quick, but it was probably the only way that moment could have gone.

Franco, who played director, producer, actor, and writer Tommy Wiseau as mastermind of the movie "The Room", brought Wiseau to the stage with him to accept the award.

The timing for Schklair to come forward is interesting considering James Franco's biographical adaptation of the film, The Disaster Artist, just won a Golden Globe for 'Best Musical or Comedy'.

Tither-Kaplan also called out the Golden Globe victor for allegedly failing to give actresses speaking roles unless it involved nudity. "Nineteen years ago, he was stuck in traffic from the Golden Globes [and] he said to his best friend Greg [Sestero], 'Golden Globes?" He added, "The things that I heard that went on Twitter are not accurate, but I completely support people coming out and being able to have a voice because they didn't have a voice for so long". The Oscar nominations will be announced January 23, and if Franco wins, he could always hand the microphone to Wiseau.

And if you haven't seen The Room, change that immediately.

That's the lesson Tommy Wiseau, the inspiration behind Franco's directing/star turn in "The Disaster Artist", discovered Sunday night at the Golden Globes. "Please never ever ask me why I left the film/TV business", Sheedy wrote in another Tweet. So, I show them.

You get it. It was Franco's moment to enjoy the praise of his peers over a movie he made likely only to stand on that very stage and enjoy the praise of his peers. Wiseau attempted to grab the microphone before Franco stopped him from speaking, leaving many to wonder what he would have said during the live show in front of millions. Franco, showed the entire world his real attraction to The Room was that he found a character hard enough to emulate that it would serve as evidence he can indeed "act".
