Short Takes: Adonis Gets Brutal…and More
Here it is, guys! The first pic of Jason Adonis from his just-wrapped role in Raging Stallion’s upcoming holiday release Brutal. It was only last week that talent agent David Forest announced that returning client Adonis would be appearing in a scene in award-winning director Tony Dimarco’s new sports-themed epic. Now, Tony tells VincentLambert.com that after a grueling 19 days, the big-budget San Fran production is complete. Adonis, who appears in a threeway with Spencer Reed and Trent Diesel, is in impressive company, with a cast that includes Ricky Sinz, Alexsander Freitas and Angelo Marconi. RSS president Chris Ward says, “Brutal is our most high-profile movie of the year and adding Jason to the cast is perfect. I look forward to seeing him under our lights!” Oh, and it just so happens that Adonis’s scene was shot on his 30th birthday. Have a happy, bb! Next up for the hung stud? A gang bang movie for Jet Set Men and an appearance at Forest’s Cocktails With the Stars event at Micky’s in Weho on September 9.

Summers died of a heart attack in North Hollywood. He was believed to be in his early sixties.…Anyone remember Big Penis? The book, that is.
