Tommy Wiseau, the creator of cult film The Room, really wants to play the Joker. Wiseau recently tweeted “DM me” at Todd Phillips, who is set to direct the upcoming Batman film.

Wiseau’s fans are behind him on his mission, sending him fan art and even making a hilarious teaser trailer that cuts up The Room with The Dark Knight. But now, Nerdist and Wiseau have come together to make an audition tape, proving that the actor is made for the role.

The Room costar and friend Greg Sestero plays the role of Batman, while Wiseau’s Joker laughs maniacally and asks the audience, “Why so serious?”
