Comedian Patton Oswalt has worked with everyone from Steven Soderbergh to Kevin James to a herd of animated rodents. But the previous achievements of the Ratatouille voice actor now, inevitably, look like just an extended warm-up to the main event. Why? Because the comedy website 5 Second Films has just posted its latest offering, which finds Patton co-starring with – wait for it! – Greg Sestero, star of Tommy Wiseau’s infamous so-bad-it’s awesome melodrama The Room. That’s right! It’s Patton and Sestero! Together at last!
This is big news for PopWatch, given our longtime devotion to Wiseau’s demented phantasmagoria, and also presumably for Patton, who has previously lampooned Wiseau and his syntax-mangling in a fake commercial for a company that launders money by investing the cash in terrible movies. (“Do you have monies from things that you should not have done to get the monies?”)
You can check out the Patton-Sestero collab below. And if you don’t like it, take heart in the fact that the sucker is around 1,500 times shorter than some rotten 2011 summer blockbusters we could mention.
