Short Takes: Gus Mattox Returns…and More


Veteran star Gus Mattox (above) is making a return to performing—just not porn. We’re hearing that the star of films such as Through the Woods, Dangerous Liaisons and Big Rig will be bringing his one-man show to Dixon Place in NYC on Wednesday, September 23. (We recently caught him in a campy “legit” acting role in RuPaul’s stinker Starrbooty on Logo.) Before that, Mattox, who was named GAYVN Performer of the Year and then packed it in a couple of years ago, will be a guest at Will Clark’s Porno Bingo on Wednesday, September 9. Gee, maybe Gus got tired of living in the woods and doing manly stuff, like building houses. Welcome back, stud!…Channel 1 Releasing has announced that exclusive model Vance Winter will be bottoming for the first time in Vance Winter’s Taking It In. The new Rascal film, which just wrapped production in Palm Springs, features Vance being topped by C1R exclusive Jeremy Bilding. Winter has four C1R titles to his credit, and he plays top man in all of them, but when he was approached by director Doug Jeffries for the scene with Bilding, Winter instantly agreed. “It was uncharted territory for me,” he says. “I practiced with some toys a few times before the shoot, and once Jeremy and I were on set, I just relaxed and everything went very smoothly.” If only real life were like that!

Following the release last month of the studio’s first application, AMG Brasil Boys, the new AMG Beefcake! brings the best work of photographer and AMG founder Bob Mizer to a digital format. The images show bodybuilders, military men and blue-collar workers clad in posing straps, briefs and bathing suits. “Bob’s black-and-white work has become synonymous with a certain period in gay photography,” studio president Dennis Bell says. “We wanted to celebrate his photography, but at the same time move it forward by delivering some of his best work on a 21st-century platform.” AMG Beefcake! is available for 99 cents in the iTunes app store.
