One-Time Solo MTV Masturbator Latches on to Lance Bass’ Fame Vehicle

Let the male porn star craze continue! HBO may have Hung, but the show we’re actually excited about is Rex, a faux-reality show based on Simon Rex, the former MTV VJ whose real claim to fame is his starring turn in Young, Hard & Solo. The plotlines are fictitious, but the premise isn’t: A C-list porn actor needs to restart his career, so he starts hanging around with famous people. Just like the real Simon Rex! (Extra gay factor: Rex goes on a man-date with Lance Bass.)
