Inside "The Room:" Comic Book Series, "My Big Break," Gives Exclusive Look Into Philip Haldiman’s Life in Hollywood and Becoming Denny

Phoenix, AZ, March 02, 2013 --( Fans of “The Room” can get an exclusive behind-the-scenes look in a comical form into the process of becoming the film’s orphaned neighbor — Denny.

Actor Philip Haldiman has released a comic book series “My Big Break,” where he brings to life his experiences in Hollywood, as well as his character in the cult film. “The comic book captures the spirit of my ups and downs as a struggling actor in Los Angeles,” Haldiman said. “And really, I'm not sure if there's any other medium that could be more appropriate to tell this story than the comic book."

The celebrated and multi-talented Tommy Cannon is the comic book series’ artist. “It is a thrilling honor to be a part of this amazing project,” Cannon said. “As a fan of ‘The Room,’ it has been ‘epic-tastic’ listening to these stories from Phil. I hope you enjoy them as much as I did.”

"The comic book will give old school fans — and hopefully new fans of ‘The Room’ — insight into all those things the camera never captured on set, and a glimpse into the surreal perils of the entertainment industry,” Haldiman added. “And you might have a few laughs along the way."
