Short Takes: C1R Gets Racy…and More
Channel 1 Releasing and controversial director Doug Jeffries are back with a new politically incorrect sex comedy. Affirmative Blacktion takes common racial stereotypes and fearlessly makes fun of them all. In the brief trailer now online, you can see porn star Brandon Lee (making his big comeback after pursuing a culinary career) ranting in a heavy Asian accent (before getting banged by Matthew Rush and Rod Daily). Timeless porn actress Sharon Kane shows up as a boozy landlady. And exclusives Jimmy Durano and Mitchell Rock, Eddie Diaz, Aron Ridge and Rob Romoni (taking a break from Twitter and his new gig at Jet Set Men to play a state inspector investigating discrimination) are also on hand to fill out the interracial cast. For more information and to view the trailer, visit C1R.com.…As dedicated porn fans know, the Grabbys are set to unspool this weekend in Chicago. As we previously reported, Chi Chi LaRue and Honey West will host on Saturday, May 29, at the Park West Theater with assistance from screen studs Roman Heart, Jeremy Bilding and Diesel Washington. Of course, Twitter is abuzz with porn stars and followers alike making plans as to when and where they will drink excessively and most likely vom later. Fun! Warming up for the big show, blogger and C1R publicist Jason Sechrest will host the annual Grabbys eve Porn Star Q&A on Friday, May 28. This year it’s being called Cocktails at Cocktail, and more than 30 gay porn stars and award nominees, including Erik Rhodes, Landon Conrad, Steven Daigle and Jason Ridge (back so soon, stud!?), are expected to be grilled live on-stage. Sechrest has hosted this event twice before, but this is the first time it will be broadcast live online. To listen, tune into EdgeRadioShow.com this Friday from 6 to 9 pm ET. Maybe some of the pornsters will be drunk already! We’re also hearing that Brandon Baker and recently retired Ryan Raz will host the annual Recovery Brunch on the morning after for all those who are not in rehab by then.…In other news from the upcoming weekend of events in Chicago, this year’s International Mr. Leather is set to take place at the Hyatt Regency Downtown on Sunday, May 30. IML 2010 has partnered with DominicFord.com to create a unique 3-D experience for those attending the event. The annual competition will kick off with a brief 3-D clip that was filmed especially for IML. Audience members will be able to view it with special 3-D glasses co-branded by both IML and DominicFord. The audience will also receive 3-D buttons, and there will be a collectible mini poster, which will also be in 3-D. “We are thrilled to be working with IML 2010,” Dominic Ford says. “They have been doing this show for over 30 years, so I’m very pleased they have trusted us to deliver a one-of-a-kind opening movie for them that the audience won’t forget.” Sounds way cool! Now where are the leather hunks!?
