James Deen offered the lead in the porno version of his own movie

By / 02.13.13

The Canyons famously stars sometime porn actor James Deen and Lindsay Lohan, and, after getting rejected by both Sundance and SXSW, was probably well on its way to obscurity, leaving behind little but a really good NY Times profile. But now it seems that it will hold onto its fame a few minutes longer, as Vivid has offered James Deen the unprecedented opportunity to direct and star in in the XXX parody of his own movie. Normally, I’d say something like this was a cheap publicity stunt – and it is a cheap publicity stunt – but the guy’s already a porn star. It’s not like there’s anything stopping him. In my experience, porn stars aren’t especially picky about their scripts.

Here’s the letter, from Vivid Entertainment’s Steve Hirsch. Forgive the grammar/spelling errors, he is a pornographer.

Hi James,
We’ve been following the news of your mainstream movie “The Canyons” with great anticipation, and we have a business offer that we think will intrigue you.
As you know Vivid is widely recognized as the leader in adult parodies and we would like to produce aVividTV parody of “The Canyons” directed by you, and starring you.
It would be a first in parodies…the actual star of a mainstream movie also starring in an X-Rated version of that same movie! How cool is that?

“Hi James?” Not even “Hi, James?” Man, somewhere, the Microsoft Paperclip is telling anyone at the bar who’ll listen, “See? I told you these motherf*ckers would be lost without me.”

Anyway, it’s ironic that Lindsay Lohan’s co-star, who she was convinced was stealing her thunder (rightly, I might add), is the one getting offers to play the porn parody version of himself. We always assumed it would be Lindsay who’d be the first to play the porn parody version of herself (I mean, career-wise, she’s already 70 percent there). I have to commend commenter Jacktion! for leaving the following prescient comment way back in May 2010:

Jacktion! says: I think Lindsay Lohan is playing Linda Lovelace in the porn remake of the Linda Lovelace biopic.

Almost, buddy. Almost.
