Mickey’s Quickies | Jet Set's ‘Johnson,’ Biaggi Retires, Biggest Porn Fans, New Bjorn Title, More Gossip

Jet Set Men’s upcoming title, Getting Levi’s Johnson, was mentioned obtusely Dec. 8 during The Joy Behar Show. Levi Johnston, Sarah Palin’s “sin-in-law” (sounds better than “baby daddy” and under the circumstances is more apropos than “daughter’s former fiancé”), looked perplexed when Behar asked for his impression of the movie and the gay adult performer who resembles him.
“Let them do what they’re going to do,” Johnston responded.
Behar, The View’s resident liberal, also asked about Corbin Fisher’s offer of $100,000 for Johnston to perform in three solo scenes and a behind-the-scenes interview. He turned down the opportunity.
“I’m only 19 years old, and I do not want to get into doing that,” Johnston told Behar.
After acknowledging a certain gay-icon status post-Playgirl, he also told Behar he intends to keep his private parts private.
“I don’t want to do something I will regret when I get older,” he said.
Behar erupted in laughter when Johnston added, “I have never seen a gay guy before, but once I started doing the tours, well, they’re people too. More fans; that’s great.”
Chances are, there will be more fans for guys like Brent Corrigan, Luke Markham, Jesse Santana and Diesel Washington once Getting Levi’s Johnson hits the streets. The film just wrapped in North Hollywood.
Jet Set is generating some pre-release excitement by releasing photos of the upcoming porn comedy. The studio recently revealed a photo spread that re-creates the Vanity Fair shoot Johnston did in real life.
As a side note, reportedly after shooting one of the scenes for the the porn spoof, Washington was kicked out of Here Lounge in West Hollywood for smelling too manly and “stinking up the joint.” Few clubs are as stuck-up as that one, and the Abbey next to it.
Raging Stallion’s hot find, Antonio Biaggi, reportedly is leaving the adult entertainment biz and the city of San Francisco after breaking up with his longtime boyfriend, Kent Taylor, also of Raging Stallion. They’ve been together more than two years, and Biaggi relocated to San Francisco shortly after they hooked up. Five Raging Stallion titles featuring Biaggi have yet to be released, so there’s plenty more of his (very nice) body of work.
Unzipped magazine’s months-long contest to find the world’s biggest porn fan continues. Finalists have been narrowed down to Carlos and Nightrider. Readers have until Dec. 31 to cast their votes. The finalists’ prodigious porn collections are shown, including hundreds of DVDs and videos, toys and magazines, and the claims that at least one of them (Nightrider) has bedded lots of gay porn stars.
Michael Lucas left no stone unturned during his recent Israel shoot. He even shot cast members while they were taking a piss. Yes, I opened my mail to Piss Gods, featuring the Israeli guys engaging in golden showers for the Lucas Raunch Line. Lucas is in it himself, along with Max Schulter, Jonathan Agassi and some of the studio’s other foreign finds.
Kristen Bjorn has released the first of a two-part series called Tropical Adventure, and he is giving uncharacteristic interviews to promote the film. On his website are excerpts of an interview about the beautifully shot film, which features good-looking Latinos.
Finally, while meeting with old journalist friends at Dan Tana’s in West Hollywood, I ran into So You Think You Can Dance judge Adam Shankman. He, his friend Scott and the musical genius Mark Shaiman—all of whom have attended the GAYVN Awards and helped mount other gay video awards shows and AIDS fundraisers—were sitting at a table across the aisle. “Well, it’s been a long haul since the days that we were putting on awards shows, eh guys?” I commented. Well, guess what? They are the team putting on this year’s Oscars. Shankman will direct the show, and Shaiman is doing the music. Shankman joked, “Should we get some porn boys in it?” I vote yes!
