HOLLYWOOD—Digital Playground contract star Kayden Kross shares the screen with Seth Rogen in the season three premiere of FX sitcom The League, airing Thursday at 10:30 p.m. Eastern and Pacific time.
Kross got a chance to flex her improv muscles in the part, which she told AVN she landed based purely on the strength of an audition, without the show's producers having any knowledge of her adult work.
"They had no clue I was a porn star," Kross said. "They were pleasantly surprised. I have a good amount of screen time; it's pretty cool."
This spot in the Hollywood limelight is just one of a series of crossover gigs the blue-movie beauty has scored recently. Aside from a brief cameo in 2009 on the CBS comedy Rules of Engagement, and her weekly Triggla.tv show Kayden's Review (where she's been honing those aforementioned improv abilities), Kross wrapped a movie in June called The Obsession opposite Donnie Darko star James Duval and Lolita's Dominique Swain. Currently in post-production, The Obsession heads soon to the festival circuit, with an expected 2012 release.
On top of that, Kross leaves in two weeks for Bulgaria, where she will essay the female lead in As Wonderland Goes By..., co-starring Dolph Lundgren as her love interest.
"I have a thing for older guys," Kross joked. "It's sort of an action movie, but that was another one I got off of an audition."
Character actor Peter Stormare has also been cast in As Wonderland Goes By..., and Kross said she is scheduled to remain on that shoot through Jan. 9.
