“Oh hai Mark.”

Get all of your unecessary plastic spoons and footballs out, because one of the stars from the best-worst movie of all time is rolling into Dublin in May.

That’s right, Greg Sestero, who played Mark in the hilariously dire drama The Room will be coming to the Light House Cinema on Saturday, 5 May to give a Q and A for his latest film, Best F(r)iends.

Written and starring Sestero, the film also features the infamous director-actor-producer-writer of The Room Tommy Wiseau, marking the first time that Sestero and Wiseau’s have appeared on-screen together since the accidental masterpiece was released back in 2003.

Based on the anecdotes of the pair’s twenty year friendship, Best F(r)iends is described as “a unique two-volume cinematic saga that interweaves mystery, intrigue, and more than a few dark laughs.”

Sestero also gained further fame recently after his New York Times bestselling book, The Disaster Artist was adapted for the big screen by James Franco, while brother Dave Franco played Greg himself.

Sestero will be appearing at the Light House Cinema on Saturday, 5 May for two screenings of the film, followed by a Q&A hosted by Derek O’Connor.
