'Project X' Star Has Project XXX Past

Warner Bros.

Did you know the #2 movie in America right this very moment stars a former porn actor in one of the three lead roles? Would you believe said movie already has the letter "X" in the title?

From the "Too Good To Be True" files (you know it as TMZ) comes the humdinger that chubby "Project X" star Jonathan Daniel Brown, who plays a horny teenager in the high school party flick, culled from his past experience as a real-life horny teenager when he appeared three years ago in the Bang Bros. production "Nerd Hunting."

No, he was not an extra, he was a full-frontal featured male lead who had his way with three buxom beauties. According to one of his co-stars (via FilmDrunk), pornographic thespian Ashli Orion, the young actor was "cute, shy, and super nervous" playing a fast food delivery guy who "became the meat."

Having seen the trailer for "Nerd Hunting," we can tell you there's a point where Phoenix Marie actually asks Brown mid-coitus if he's thinking about "Star Wars." Somehow we don't think a guy who's giving the middle finger in his IMDB profile pic will mind people knowing...

We all know Sasha Grey has gone on to have a legitimate acting career, but is there a precedent for a male porn star crossover? You betcha. Sylvester Stallone had a sly porn past in "The Party at Kitty and Stud's," "Christmas Story" kid Scotty Schwartz later delved into skin flicks with gusto, and "The Artist" Oscar-winner Jean Dujardin starred in a series of silent porn movies under the name "Nut Buster Keaton."

Okay, that last one isn't true, but you get the point: the line between porn and mainstream continues to blur, and before you know it there will be porn queens trading their AVN Best All-Girl Sex Scene Awards for Oscars, and maybe one day Bang Bus will leave some naked girls behind on the moon. The sky's the limit!

TMZ somehow found 50-seconds of footage from "Nerd Hunting" that didn't contain nudity, although it does feature some suggestively NSFW use of french fries…
