TX-31: Actor from legendary bad movie 'The Room' running for House against veteran Texas Republican

Via the Texas Tribune’s Patrick Svitek, Daily Kos Election’s (ok, only my) new favorite Democrat in the whole country is Dan Janjigian, who was on Armenia’s two-man bobsledding team during the 2002 Winter Olympics shortly before his star turn as the drug dealer Chris R. (The character is only in one scene and just referred to as “Chris R.”) Janjigian was later played by Zac Efron in The Disaster Artist, the 2017 Oscar-nominated movie about the making of The Room.

On Thursday, Janjigian announced he was launching a bid for the Democratic nod against veteran GOP Rep. John Carter in Texas’ 31st Congressional District, a 54-41 Trump seat in Austin’s northern suburbs. Carter won an unexpectedly expensive contest just 51-48 last year against MJ Hegar, who is now running for the Senate, and he could be vulnerable again in a seat that GOP Sen. Ted Cruz carried only 50.5-48.4. Sadly, though, I doubt that this district has a large enough electorate of fans of trash cinema to give Janjigian much of an opening. Though maybe he could try raising money as Chris R and see what happens.

1. Can we get Tommy Wiseau to run in Nevada's District 2?

Against Mark Amodei.

Debate opening remarks
Amodei: "... And that's why I feel that I've earned my constituents' trust, and I hope they will once again give me the honor of serving them again. Thank you."
Moderator: "Thank you, Representative Amodei. Mister Wiseau?"
Wiseau: "Oh, hi, Mark. How's your sex life?"
