Porn Star James Deen

Offered Lead Role in XXX

Version of 'The Canyons'

EXCLUSIVE

Porn star James Deen has starred in a number of XXX movie parodies, but he has a chance to make history ... by doing a porn parody of his own mainstream movie!

Vivid Entertainment honcho Steve Hirsch is actively courting James to direct and star in a porn version of "The Canyons" ... the movie he starred in alongside Lindsay Lohan.

Hirsch sent James a letter, in which he tries to lure Deen to the project by saying, "It would be a first in parodies ... the actual star of a mainstream movie also starring in an X-Rated version of that same movie! How cool is that?"

As for who they've lined up for the role of Lindsay, Hirsch says they've gathered "a list of hot women" for him to consider.

Unclear if the real Lindsay is on Hirsch's hit list, but if Octomom can do it ...

Yeah, they wanted to do a Disney like version of the Clamyons but SpongeBob Square Pants said hell no. Seems he can't stand the smell of rotting fish.

Lindsay "Just Keep Me Working On Set" Lohan, read this and weep:

4-year-old Vivienne Jolie-Pitt has already scored her first paying gig ... and she's raking in a helluva lot more than you made on your paper route back in the day. Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie's daughter is set to co-star with her mom in a movie called "Maleficent" -- and according to a minor's contract filed with the court, little Viv commands $3,000/week! On top of that ... she gets a per diem of $60.../day.

This James Deen guy is really starting to get annoying. Someone has to remind him that he performs in hardcore porn, it is a life that leads to nowhere, he acts like he is some A list star, why?, because he has a lot of morons who follow him on twitter? He is as bad as those annoying hipsters who hang out at Starbucks and check their facebook all day. Ron Jeremy may look disgusting these days but at least he is funny, this guy is just full of himself

Following a series of brushes with the law and acting roles that have drawn the worst kinds of buzz, Lindsay Lohan may be turning her attention to the restaurant business.

The Hollywood Math Behind How Lindsay Lohan's 'The Canyons' Will Make Money


SXSW Rejected Lindsay Lohan's 'Canyons' Over 'Quality Issues'

The tabloid fixture is making headlines for a sighting in New York City's tony Tribeca neighborhood, where she was heard talking about "the potential design" for a restaurant in the area, according to the Tribeca Citizen (via Grub Street).

"We’re told that Lindsay Lohan was in the retail store currently in our commercial space late this afternoon," a source told the site. "Importantly, she was talking about the potential design of the space, including where she would like to put a bar and a DJ booth."

Meanwhile, the New York Post reports that the space in question won't be turned over to Lohan but rather chef Enrique Olvera, who intends to open an upscale Mexican restaurant, and that the 26-year-old actress had visited there (not with Olvera) when it hit the market.


"I have no idea how [Lohan’s] name got involved with this. .... The tenant is a very high-end Mexican restaurant with one of the leading chefs in the world. A number of people are concerned about what they perceive to be the potential nuisance of a restaurant. As far as I am concerned, they’re using [Lohan’s] name to get some coverage so they can develop more controversy," Stephen Corelli, landlord and owner of the architecture firm Triarch, told the Post.

It's probably impossible to top Lindsay Lohan's complicated, multi-layer and emotionally raw performance as Elizabeth Taylor, but Helena Bonham Carter is going to try. (Note: A popped pimple on Helena Bonham Carter's a.ss could top Lindsay Lohan's performance.) BBC4 is doing their own Liz & Dick movie and they got HBC to play Elizabeth Taylor and Jimmy McNulty from The Wire (born name: Dominic Gerard Fe West) to play Richard Burton.

BBC4's Burton & Taylor will only focus on the short time in 1983 when La Liz and Richard Burton starred in Private Lives together on Broadway. Liz and Dick weren't bumping nipples at the time, but they were still fighting and getting crazy backstage. HBC told the Daily Mail that she knows her face looks nothing like La Liz's face, but it's not about that and blah blah blah:

"I look nothing like her for a start but it’s about capturing the essence of them at a particular time. She was and continues to be a fascinating woman and she was a huge star. There’s no one comparable around now."

The world doesn't need another movie about Elizabeth Taylor the same way Grey Goose doesn't need another call from White Oprah begging them to let her be a taste tester, but at least Helena Bonham Carter can step away from playing a psychotic, crazy-eyed, twig-covered forest witch in ANOTHER Tim Burton movie. But really, I'd rather Helena Bonham Carter put on her witch makeup from Big Fish to play Lindsay Lohan in a BBC4 biopic about the making of Lifetime's Liz & Dick.

Lying Lindsay can't open a resturant. She will never get a liquor licences with her rap sheet.


This would be the menu if she did open one.


1. Menu items will include Herbie Fully Loaded Enchilada, Garrison Keillor’s famous authentic Chimichanga, Mean Girl Spicy Grilled Shrimp, Canyons Ceviche, Freaky Friday Fajitas, Lindsay’s 5 Alarm “I Know Who Killed Me” And Its This Chili, and Liz & Dick tacos.

2. Meals are served on a mirror with a straw and one of Lilo’s authentic, maxed out credit cards.

3. All servers wear stripes and SCRAM bracelets.

4. Charlie Sheen covers the tips.

5. The carpets match the drapes.

6. Dina Lohan’s voice is piped into the bathroom saying “I hate cocaine.”

7. If your food’s not good, one of Lindsay’s parents comes out and blames the other one for screwing it up.

8. And obviously, the restaurant will double as an after-hours night club with a DJ booth. Señorita Lohan will have a room above the joint so she can crash there (translation: never have to drive again).

If you read the letter it doesn't even seem legit. Hirsch wrote "wouldn't it be cool"??? Who ever heard of heads of companies talking like that. Although it is porn not the brightest people but still.... Also why would Hirsch send James Deen a letter?? He knows him. Wouldn't Hirsch just call James Deen?? I think James Deen wrote the letter himself. He needs attention.
