Biography

A porn actor whose all-American good looks and shrewd self-awareness helped him register on the mainstream radar, James Deen made a name for himself as a cute-but-kinky boy-next-door who resonated sexually with a large number of fans. Unlike the stereotype of the slimy, unattractive porn actor, Deen offered an alternative as the thinking woman's adult film star, and figured into the fantasies of many teenage girls, who took to social media outlets to help promote him. Profiled on "Nightline" (ABC, 1980- ) and sometimes called the "Tom Cruise of porn," Deen seemed poised to break through to mainstream acting success when Bret Easton Ellis began publicly touting him as the perfect actor to star in his upcoming film project "The Canyons." Proudly sex-positive and coming across as thoughtful and intelligent in his interviews, James Deen represented the world's changing perceptions and increased consumption of adult entertainment as a mainstream phenomenon.
