Like an adult industry version of his namesake James Dean, porn stud James Deen has become a pop idol. His mainstream appeal reaches farther than that of many of his fellow male performers and he appeals to straight girls of any age, so much so that they create blogs dedicated to him. It could be that he's a cute guy with a big dick, or maybe it's just that he makes it clear how much he's enjoying sex with every girl, or it could be his jovial personality. Most likely it's a combination of all three features and more.
At age 18, James got his start in the adult industry by doing web scenes with MILFs. He did his first feature with alt-porn auteur Eon McKai. Soon mainstream studios took notice and he began working with some of the biggest companies, including Zero Tolerance, New Sensations, and Hustler. Along the way, James also appeared in many alt-porn titles. When he was first cast in a Burning Angel production, he met his match in alt-porn goddess Joanna Angel. The two were romantically involved for a while as James continued to work for Angel's company Burning Angel on camera and behind the scenes.
The popularity of porn parodies has been a boon to James, who has lent his sexual and comic talents to such roles as Bobby Ewing in Adam & Eve's Dallas XXX A Parody, Robin in Vivid Entertainment's smash hit Batman XXX A Porn Parody, and Egon Spengler in Hustler's This Ain't Ghostbusters XXX. James has also been cast in dramatic roles, including Last Tango from Sweet Sinema and The Stepmother 4 from Sweet Sinner. Sexually speaking, he's a reliable stud in any gonzo or fetish flick, giving starlets the rough treatment they love in movies like Manhandled 4 from Belladonna Entertainment/Evil Angel or just fucking the hell out of them in flicks such as Elegant Angel's Swimsuit Calendar Girls 2012. Porn star Lexi Belle chose James as her partner for her first anal sex scene in Elegant Angel's Lexi and the result is jaw-dropping in its heat and sensuality. Throughout it all, James is always a more than capable swordsman, wielding nine inches of power.
In 2008, James was the Unsung Swordsman at the XRCO Awards (who also gave Best On-Screen Chemistry to James and Joanna Angel). A year later, AVN and XBIZ both named him Male Performer of the Year, making him the youngest to win the title. In 2013, James was once again the Male Performer of the Year for both XBIZ and AVN. He also tied with superstar Sunny Leone for AVN Crossover Star of the Year and took home the same award from XBIZ. One look at the way he makes any partner seem like the hottest woman alive and you'll see why James is in such high demand. Since 2004, he has amassed more than 1,350 films to his name as a performer and has taken up directing as well.
Mainstream attention for James has steadily grown as more and more young women have plastered his image all over their blogs just like a teen idol. In 2012, James began to film a mainstream project with a screenplay by Bret Easton Ellis (American Psycho, Less Than Zero), who had hand-picked him for the role. We still haven't seen the best of James Deen.
