Cheyenne Jackson Is Finally Doing Porn! (Okay, It’s On Broadway—But Still!)

One of our deepest dreams is coming true, sort of: Heavenly creature Cheyenne Jackson—he of Xanadu, 30 Rock and Glee fameis getting involved in the world of porn.

Sadly, he hasn’t lined up with Randy Blue or Michael Lucas: Playbill is reporting the blue-eyed charmer is taking a role in David West Read’s Broadway rom-com The Performers, which starts previews at the Longacre in October and officially opens on November 14.

According to its press releasePerformers sees two men and the women in their lives reconnect at the Adult Film Awards in Las Vegas. “When the night takes an unexpected turn and relationships are threatened, Chuck Wood, the hardest-working man in the business, steps in to lend a hand.  Sex, love and Barry Manilow intersect in this comedy about the ups and downs and ins and outs of love.”

Joining Jackson are Tony nominee Daniel Breaker (Passing Strange), actresses Ari Graynor and Jenni Barber, and Henry Winkler, who plays aging porn lothario Wood. (Sounds a little like Ron “the Hedgehog” Jeremy, no?)

We can’t tell if Jackson’s character is a porn actor, producer, or just a fan. But if he doesn’t wind up shirtless on stage the whole thing will be a travesty of the highest order.

    I hate the headline for this article. It is not porn. Good grief.

    Jackson is overrated.

    I have no idea why people are ga-ga over him – he’s not all that. He’s kinda boring and he cannot act himself out of a paper bag. He really should just go back to stripping.

    I would watch Cheyanne Jackson read names out of a phone book. He’s beautiful and incredibly talented.

    @tazz602: I agree. He’s so boring and he over-acts in everything he’s in. And he always looks the same – why does he never change his look some or get a new hairstyle or something?

    @Kyle215: I think he’s the most talented man in America, and he’s a bright, clever, charming man as well. Of course some people prefer their singers & actors to be anything BUT clever and charming. I pity them.

    @Hephaestion:

    You obviously haven’t seen much of American then. Really, most talented man?

  • DJ

    This guy is NOT hot, clever, intelligent, or charming, and he’s a professional cumdumpster. He’ll go back to doing porn and being a wh0re like they ALL do. I would not be surprised if he’s HIV+ and then goes back and does bareback pr0n.

    He slept his way to the middle….

    NIIIIIIIIIICE, girlz! Well, then…if I ever need “BITTERS” to mix my drinks with, I don’t have to run to the store. There’s plenty of that here to go around….
