Crossover Star With Massive Mainstream Recognition Brings Lady-Killing Appeal To Top XXX Studio
Van Nuys, Calif. - He's known as "Porn's Beloved Boy-Next-Door" and, right now, as the hottest talent crossing over from adult entertainment to mainstream celebrity. He's making a huge name for himself - not as a "Giant" or a "Rebel", but as the current star that causes women to melt and the media to jump to attention. Starting this July,James Deen will also be known as the newest director on the vaunted roster of X-rated movie powerhouse Evil Angel.
Along with surging popularity and social media buzz, Deen brings diverse sexual talents to Evil Angel - he's equally adept with everything from couples erotica to nasty gonzo to shocking BDSM filth. "To me, sex should be motivated by what I feel, not by a formulaic mandate", says Deen. That ethic and a unique gift for getting individual women off in exactly the ways they like has led Deen to the highest XXX industry acclaim and, since 2008, to making his own films. "It's an honor to be included as a director with a company that includes John Stagliano and Rocco Siffredi", says Deen, speaking respectively of Evil Angel's pioneering founder and its iconic international performer/director.
Deen is driven to continue creating smut no matter how high his mainstream star rises. And it's exploding like a rocket - in the past year, Deen has starred with Lindsay Lohan in "The Canyons", directed by Paul Schrader ("Taxi Driver", "American Gigolo") and written by literary figure Bret Easton Ellis (Less Than Zero, American Psycho). Deen's been profiled in GQ and was the subject of a photo shoot and interview at RollingStone.com. He's been interviewed on ABC's "Nightline" and on CNBC. His sex tape with Farrah Abraham, the star of MTV's "Teen Mom", has reaped heavy coverage at TMZ and E Entertainment. He says his blog at JamesDeen gets over 10,000 unique visitors a day. He's even become a standing-room-only attraction on the college lecture circuit.
Evil Angel General Manager Christian Mann considers Deen a great fit for the company. He comments, "While I am excited about the marketing opportunity garnered by James' crossover appeal, none of that mattered to John Stagliano. To become an Evil Angel director, James had to meet the same criteria as every one on our roster - their work had to appeal to John's innate sense of what makes good smut. I'm happy to say James Deen's directorial efforts have met that standard."
Deen will direct monthly movies for Evil Angel, debuting in July with gonzo title "James Deen Loves Butts". That one will star Dana DeArmond, Mason Moore and Jessie Rogers, along with the man himself. Indeed, Deen will be fucking as well as directing at Evil Angel, news sure to thrill porn's female talent pool. Having worked in over 3,000 scenes since 2004, Deen has been named the Male Performer Of The Year by AVN, Xbiz and XRCO.
Deen's amalgamation of coltish, regular-guy appeal and intense, insatiable sexuality comes naturally - before becoming a porn star, he found that he could get away with having sex with girls in front of friends at parties around L.A. Apparently, sexy "boy-next-door" charm translates from the hard-core sex world to mainstream entertainment. Now Evil Angel gets to see how Deen's talent for generating mainstream buzz translates to porn sales.
