Characters: The Room


Played by Tommy Wiseau


Played by Juliette Danielle


Played by Greg Sestero


Played by Philip Haldiman

  • Ambiguous Disorder: His behavior is... incredibly bizarre for someone who is likely pushing his twenties. Even Tommy Wiseau has admitted the character makes more sense if you think of him as mildly retarded.
  • Ambiguously Bi: Reacts in a conspicuously nonchalant manner upon hearing about Mike's "underwears" and later expresses how "handsome" every other male character looks in their tuxes individually, sounding decidedly excited while doing so. Also, early on in the movie he explains to Lisa that he "loves" her...and Johnny after asking to kiss her.
  • Compressed Vice: His drug dealings with Chris-R are brought up once and then never again afterward.
  • Four-Temperament Ensemble: The Sanguine.
  • Kid-Appeal Character
  • Man Child: To a degree. He keeps trying to go upstairs with Johnny and Lisa when he knows they're going to have sex, and presumably wants to join in, then follows them upstairs and jumps on the bed. He also talks about how he's "in love" with Lisa like a 7-year old, and fawns over her to a creepy effect.
  • No Social Skills
  • Phrase Catcher: "Oh hai, Denny!"
  • Tagalong Kid


Played by Carolyn Minnott

  • Evil Matriarch: Has bits of it.
  • The Mentor: The closest thing this movie has to one. Naturally, she's very bad at it.
  • Only Sane Woman: She may be an immoral, self-absorbed hypochondriac, but she's also the only character in this movie who seems even remotely aware of how absurd the plot is.
    • This seems especially true in real life, as she knew that this movie was gonna be disastrous; she likely just stuck it out for the laughs.
  • What Happened to the Mouse?: Her breast cancer.
    • "They have cures for everything."


Played by Mike Holmes


Played by Robyn Paris


Played by Dan Janjigian


Played by Kyle Vogt

  • Brainy Specs
  • Busman's Holiday: Is still playing the Psychologist even when he's off-duty.
  • Chuck Cunningham Syndrome: Mysteriously disappears midway through the movie, and is never mentioned again.
  • Only Sane Man: Even in real life.
  • The Smart Guy
  • What Happened to the Mouse?: His actor quit mid-movie, so he disappears and Steven takes his place.
    • Kyle Vogt had another gig at the time of production, and despite repeatedly telling Wiseau that he had a limited amount of time to work, they were not able to finish filming his scenes. In fact, Wiseau insisted on the famous "football in tuxes" scene, rather than filming Peter's scenes at the party.


Played by Greg Ellery


Flower Shop Lady


Claudette's brother (and Lisa's uncle), who wants her to give him a share of her house. Claudette is less than willing to do this.

Shirley Hamilton

Claudette's friend, who wants to buy a new house. Claudette asks Johnny to help her with a down payment, only for him to tell her it's an awkward situation. She expected him to be more generous. The only character in the entire movie to have a surname, yet she's entirely offscreen.
