Short Takes: Tony Buff to Direct…and More

Titan Media has announced the signing of porn star Tony Buff (above) to a multiyear contract to direct and star in a new line of hard-core fetish films. “Tony is the most exciting new fetish performer to come along in years,” says Bruce Cam, CEO of Titan Media. “His natural abilities to direct became apparent over the past year of filming. We are very excited to transition this amazing performer into a director.” Buff joined Titan Media in late 2007 as an exclusive performer and has appeared in films such as Breakers, Chainsaw, Fear and Folsom Prison, which he also co-directed. “My work with Titan Media has been exceptionally rewarding on a multitude of levels,” Buff says. “I am thrilled our relationship is continuing through the launch of this new line that will bring extremely heavy yet responsible BDSM play to the screen.” The movies are expected to debut this spring.…More news about the upcoming GAYVN Awards (set for March 28 in San Francisco) is trickling in. While the nominees have not been decided yet (names and titles are being considered as we speak), we’re hearing that those on the short list for the job of host (held in past years by Kathy Griffin, Lady Bunny and Chi Chi LaRue, among others) is being narrowed to former supermodel (and current reality “star”) Janice Dickinson, funny lady Margaret Cho and comedian Alec Mapa (Ugly Betty). Stay tuned!…Singer (and former porn star) Colton Ford (below) is following up his excellent Tug of War album with two hot new singles. One is a muscular reworking of our girl Brit-Brit’s b-side club hit “Trouble.” The other is a remake of Stardust’s “Music Sounds Better With You.” Both will be featured on Ford’s new album of cover tunes, appropriately titled Under the Covers, due in March. Sounds like a good place to be with Colton!
