Who Will Have The Longer Mainstream Career — Lindsay Lohan Or Porn Star James Deen?

Lindsay Lohan and James Deen in The CanyonsJames doesn’t want a mainstream career that badly. If it happens, great. But we approached James. He wasn’t going out there before The Canyons trying to go on auditions. He was making a pretty good living in something that he liked to do, and he wasn’t desperate for this role. He was always super casual about it. If he got it, great, if not, he still worked. He worked on porn during the shooting of The Canyons, so just because of that fact, I’d have to say Lindsay. I mean, I think if Lindsay stays clean and sober, she would be great. I don’t think she has to be totally sober, but if she pulled it back a bit? [Laughs.] The thing that people forget is that she’s actually a good screen actress. A very good screen actress. It’s just been buried by the tabloid activity of the last four or five years, however long it’s been going on. And so she obviously has a more viable future. But, you know, it depends on how she decides to approach her life.”
