To celebrate James Franco's upcoming movie, The Disaster Artist, the actor sat down on Jimmy Kimmel Live! and brought out Tommy Wiseau to discuss likeness, representation, and accuracy in the newly released project.

Based on the book of the same name, the movie chronicles the making of Wiseau's The Room which has since become a cult classic or as EW describes, the "Citizen Kane of bad movies." The film which had a $6 million budget grossed less than $2000 in its opening but nonetheless did well to go onto a series of night screenings as the buzz caught on.

Wearing an interesting ensemble of stud belts, tandem with waistcoat and sunglasses, Wiseau walked out with a sweet charm and ultimately praised Franco for his performance, telling him "it was 99.9% accurate." Wiseau, who is usually a secretive and quiet character, opened up about his personal life as Franco revealed some details over a mini-spat that the two had during the film's editing stage.

In a lighthearted grilling session, we learn a little about the film itself, as well as previous projects Franco had worked on. Either way, it's all in good fun with Wiseau adding "The Disaster Artist, I saw it three times and I think everyone in America should see it."
