Fredrik Elkund Already Swapped His Gay Porn Career To Become A Real Estate Power Broker. Next Up, Reality TV Star

Gay (and trans) porn stars can become reality TV stars, scandalous film actors, inspirational speakers, right-wing tyrants, and alleged murderers, and convicted murderers. Why not real estate moguls? That’s the story of Fredrik Elkund, known to some as Tag Eriksson.

Profiled by the Times, the Swedish gay ex-porn star (read: not gay-for-pay) is now moving condos in New York City for the likes of Cameron Diaz, Daniel Craig, Jessica Alba, and the Olsen twins, because that is how we measure success. Now that part isn’t new.

But the Training Camp II and The Hole star (who wrote a book on his industry experience) is set to become a whole new brand of celebrity (or “mogul,” as the Times insists) with a Bravo reality show about selling real estate. But this wouldn’t be the world of porn without scandal: Elkund’s firm Core already films a show with HGTV called Selling New York, which might mean the David Barton-obsessed gym rat is forced to choose between an employer and insta-mainstream fame.

Guess how this one is going to turn out.
