The Room director and star Tommy Wiseau is seemingly campaigning to join the cast of James Gunn’s The Suicide Squad.
Warner Bros. and DC’s The Suicide Squad is expected to deliver a fresh take on the titular team, with Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn writing and helming the project. Last week, James Gunn unveiled the official cast list for The Suicide Squad and while production is already gearing up, it appears Tommy Wiseau would like the join the ensemble.
In a post on his official Twitter account, Tommy Wiseau added his name to The Suicide Squad cast list photo James Gunn previously shared on social media. Curiously, Tommy Wiseau billed himself third in place of Jai Courtney, though an explanation was not provided in the post.

James Gunn’s The Suicide Squad isn’t the only superhero film franchise Tommy Wiseau has expressed interested in joining. Over the past couple of years, Tommy Wiseau has also been campaigning to play The Joker in a DC film.
The first Suicide Squad followed a team of supervillains who were recruited by the government for a dangerous black ops mission in exchange for reduced sentences. The ensemble cast included Will Smith as Deadshot, Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn and Jared Leto as The Joker. James Gunn is expected to deliver on the fresh take on the supervillain team in his upcoming movie.
Written and directed by James Gunn, The Suicide Squad stars David Dastmalchian, John Cena, Jai Courtney, Joaquín Cosío, Nathan Fillion, Joel Kinnaman, Mayling Ng, Flula Borg, Sean Gunn, Juan Diego Botto, Storm Reid, Pete Davidson, Taika Waititi, Alice Braga, Steve Agee, Tinashe Kajese, Daniela Melchior, Peter Capaldi, Julio Ruiz, Jennifer Holland, Viola Davis, Idris Elba, Margot Robbie, and Michael Rooker.
The Suicide Squad will be released in theaters on August 6, 2021.
