Porn Star James Deen Offered his Own Part in X-rated 'Canyons' Parody

Prettybird

We should've seen this coming.

Porn star James Deen, who took his first dive into acting on the shallow end of the ratings alphabet opposite Lindsay Lohan for "The Canyons," has now reportedly been offered the chance to play his own character in an upcoming X-rated parody of the film. Not only that, but he's also been given a chance to take the director's chair for the movie.

A moment to process? Sure.

Vivid Entertainment's Steve Hirsch proposed the arrangement by writing, "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?"

So, essentially, the poor sap who made a movie with the notorious Lilo to try for a break outside of his porn film limits has not only watched the movie's buzz crash and burn (though he did muster up a small defense for the heinous brat his troubled co-star), but now the big opportunity coming out of the maneuver is naughty self-mockery? Par for the rocky course.

On the bright side, he may get a new co-star because apparently the "hot women" are already in queue for the gig, and Mr. Hirsch didn't even bother suggesting Lilo portray herself after Deen's own admission that he and (original) director Paul Schrader prepped for a scene by stating, "Here's your motivation for the scene: after you do this, you'll never have to work with her again." Oh, but wouldn't it be ironic?
