The Ron Jeremy Roast
Since the demise of the legendary John Holmes in March 1988, the short, mustachioed, heavyset Ron Jeremy has assumed the mantle as the number one U.S. male star of adult cinema. However, don't confuse Ron with the similar looking mustachioed 1970/'80s adult film star, Harry Reems, who has long since retired from the adult film industry. Portly Ron is not blessed with film star looks and a chiseled six-pack (a decidedly unchiseled 12- or 18-pack would be more like it) - his appeal and talents lie in other areas (which happen to be in his long 'member' measuring nearly 10 inches, erect!) and his "regular guy" appearance and amazing endurance in front of the camera have undoubtedly contributed to his phenomenal success in an industry notorious for dumping those men who can't perform on cue.
He's also one of the very few adult film stars to make the jump into mainstream cinema, with minor appearances in movies such as Reindeer Games (2000), Detroit Rock City (1999) and The Boondock Saints (1999)
Lisa Ann, a scintillating dark-haired beauty who only grows more appealing with age, graced the porn scene between 1993 and 1994. Her exhibitionist talents first began on stage as an erotic dancer during her college years in 1990, when she later became a certified dental assistant. In 1997 she quit the porn business due to an AIDS scare. During her time away she returned to dancing in strip clubs around the United States. Later she returned to the industry as first an agent and then eventually as a performer again. It was during this time she founded Clear Talent Management, which later was renamed Lisa Ann's Talent Management, based in California. She is perhaps best known as of 2008 and 2009 for her on-camera portrayal of right-wing politician Sarah Palin in the porn parody Who's Nailin' Paylin? (2008). Lisa's over-a-decade career continues with great strength as her popularity grows. She is perhaps one of the most popular performers in the "MILF" and "Cougar" genres of the porn industry.
Born on January 7, 1977 in San Jose, California, Dustin Diamond entered the world of acting as a child. In the late '80s, he appeared in the family film Purple People Eaters, the zany Big Top Pee Wee and the teen movie She's Out of Control. He also had guest spots on the TV series The Wonder Years and It's a Living.
In 1988, Diamond began playing the role of Screech on the Disney Channel's Good Morning, Miss Bliss, which starred Hayley Mills as a middle-school teacher. After the series was cancelled, a few of the characters, including Screech, were transplanted to high school in the sitcom Saved by the Bell, co-starring Elizabeth Berkley, Mark-Paul Gosselaar, Mario Lopez, Tiffani-Amber Thiessen and Lark Voorhies. Taking place at Bayside High, the series became a popular component of NBC's Saturday morning kid's lineup and sometimes highlighted serious fare with its frothy storylines. The perennially on-another-planet Screech was popular for his oddball, earnest antics.
Even after its cancellation, Bell developed a large fan following, going in syndication on TBS for many years. Diamond starred in various Bell TV movies and a primetime 1993 spinoff, Saved by the Bell: the College Years, which ran for only one season. Saved by the Bell was followed by a daytime spinoff as well, Saved by the Bell: The New Class, in which Diamond reappeared as Screech, now a college student working as part of the school's administrative staff. The show ran for seven seasons.
Post-Bell, Diamond put out a 2001 instructional video, Dustin Diamond Teaches Chess, and flexed his musical muscles by playing bass with the alternative metal group Salty the Pocketknife, appearing on their 2003 self-titled debut. He also appeared on a number of TV shows like Celebrity Boxing, The Weakest Link and Hollywood Squares, and worked as a stand-up comedian.
In 2006, Diamond made news as portions of a sex video featuring the actor with two women were leaked onto the internet to much media attention. Initially publicly protesting the clip, he later signed a deal with its distributor to take a cut of the profits. The video was officially released with a rather alarming title. Later allegations surfaced from the broker of the deal that Diamond had intended for the clip to be released all along, and that he may have used a body double.
Then in 2007, Diamond gained more notoriety as a contestant on Celebrity Fit Club, a VH1 reality program where various media personalities vied to lose weight in a contest format.
In 2009, Diamond published a tell-all memoir called Behind the Bell by Transit Publishing, focusing on his experiences on the set of his childhood hit.
