Well, the fanaticism around Tommy Wiseau’s cult film THE ROOM may have died down since three years ago, but for those of you who have wondered what happened when I interviewed Greg Sestero… Check out our links below!
I tell you… launching a sex and comedy publication FOR WOMEN is no easy feat. Just ask Jessica Moats (former Art Director of Playgirl Magazine) who has been working non-stop for almost a year to get Kong Magazine off the ground. Kong rises from the ashes of the now out of print Playgirl Magazine to offer meaty, literary, and well curated sexy content for women readers.
No longer will we have to glean off of porn sites for men to get our rocks off! Kong is here! Jessica is a good friend of mine and I’ve gotten to witness how launching a web media publication is about as easy as making a living as a performance artist. But she did it! A virtual one woman (with a lot of help) ship! I’m so proud of her!
Above is just a snippet of the interview I did with Greg Sestero, star of the cult phenomemon “THE ROOM.” A longer one is available and some other articles are available once you get in the site. Kong is offering a free month of membership so people can check out the site. Use the code “KONG_100607″ to get your free month membership. The code is only good through 7/21/10, so jump on it!
If you know who this is, you are probably spinning in your seat like I was all of Saturday when I got to interview him for Kong Magazine’s premiere issue. It’s Greg Sestero, the hunk sauce actor who stars in the Cult Phenomenon “The Room.” A movie that was written, directed, produced and stars Tommy Wiseau that I’ve been a fan of for the last few years. It’s become the new Rocky Horror. The Room is one of the few live experiences that I’ve been to at least five times (lost count).
Kong did a really steamy photoshoot of Greg complete with super-fanesque shots of him in a bed of spoons and pouring scotchka on his bare chest. It was so surreal to actually meet Greg in real life and ask him “hunk-of-the-month” questions like, “So what’s the most romantic date you’ve ever been on?”
We also shot and interviewed Branden Kong who was Tommy Wiseau’s one time assistant, confidante, and stars in “The Neighbors.” Branden is arguably, the original “Denny.”
Later that night, we all headed to Orange County to watch the first ever screening of the Room. There was a smaller turnout than in LA and NYC where it tends to sell out. Tommy didn’t come but Greg and Branden did. I ended up announcing them for the pre-show Q&A. It was so great and weird to be in front of these Room fans introducing Greg.
Greg threw the football around in the theater. What was even weirder was when I was screaming at the screen during the Greg/Mark scenes with Greg just a few feet from me. Greg told us that he hasn’t really watched the movie in full for a few years and I guess he hadn’t heard a lot of the audience chants. And in the dark of the theater he hugged me and whispered softly into my ear, “You’re responses are great!”
