LAS VEGAS—For the second year in a row, veteran actor and parody mainstay James Bartholet was honored at the 2012 AVN Awards as one of the most prolific faces in adult films today, taking home the award for Best Non-Sex Performance for his role as Tthe Pornologist in Wicked Pictures' lauded The Rocki Whore Picture Show: A Hardcore Parody. His award helped tip the scales to a whopping nine wins for the film.
"I'm very proud of the award, and this is the second year in a row," said Bartholet. "I was very surprised when my name was announced because I was up against several very talented actors. I'd like to thank AVN, Brad Armstrong and Wicked Pictures, Axel Braun and Vivid Entertainment, and everyone else who helped make this a great year."
Last year, the actor received a 2011 AVN Award for Best Non-Sex Performance for his multi-layered comedic performance as Bosley in Not Charlie’s Angels XXX (X-Play/Digital Sin). After seven years in the industry and roles in over 100 films, he has starred in some of the year’s biggest hits. Some of his recent releases include the XBIZ award-winning Beverly Hillbillies: A XXX Parody for X-Play/Adam & Eve, The Graduate XXX for Exile Pictures, Hustler's Untrue Hollywood Stories: Oprah for Hustler, and Official Halloween Parody for Zero Tolerance.
Bartholet is constantly filming and can be seen in more parodies and scenes in the next few months. He also hosts the weekly Inside the Industry radio program heard Wednesday nights from 8-9 pm PST, and rebroadcast daily on LA Talk Radio and iTunes. The program features interviews with the industry's top talent, directors, and reviewers, and is a very popular Internet radio show among members of the adult film industry and fans alike.
