Tommy Wiseau is a well-known name in Hollywood. However, he is known for all the wrong reasons. Tommy is actually an actor and director who has made several flop movies in his career. His most infamous film “The Room” is named as the worst film by movie critics. He has tried to make several films and tv shows in the past but none of them seems to have hit the mark. He does have some real estate which contributes to his net worth.
Tommy Wiseau is a filmmaker who has been working in the film industry for a very long time. He started his career in the 1980s when he was trying to make a name for himself. His first film “The Room ” which was heavily criticised by the film critics came to be known as the worst film ever. However, recently the movie has become a cult favourite among the audience.
Wiseau was greatly impressed by the actors James Dean and Marlon Brando. He even included certain lines from their films to show his fandom. The film itself was an adaptation of the novel Wiseau had written but failed to publish.
Even after his initial failure the film became a classic due to its late-night shows that attracted a lot of audience. In 2004, Wiseau produced and appeared in a short documentary, Homeless in America. He continued his career in the film industry and 2010, starred in a 15-minute parody horror film entitled The House That Drips Blood on Alex.
He also acted in several other movies like Samurai Cop 2: Deadly Vengeance, The Disaster Artist, Big Shark, Samurai and so on. He even wrote and directed some of these films. Unfortunately, the films he directed were not much of a hit. He later made the famous sitcom ” The Neighbors” in 2015. He also has several investment properties in Hollywood and Dan Fransico which adds to his net worth. His net worth according to current estimation stands at $4 million as of 2021.

The birth and initial life of the star still remains a mystery and his accounts keep changing from time to time. His friend Greg Sestero claimed that he had found information that he was older than he claimed to be.
