HOLLYWOOD, Calif.—Break out the colorful 1980s sweaters that made Cliff Huxtable of The Cosby Show so wholesome and funny, because the show's porno doppelgänger, Not the Cosbys XXX, just won big at the 2010 AVN Awards Show in Las Vegas—and there’s a blockbuster sequel coming soon.
The award-winning, hilarious adult movie and the coming sequel were produced by X-Play and directed by Will Ryder, and are not endorsed by Mr. Cosby or Carsey Werner Productions. But that didn’t stop the voters from loving this tribute parody and naming it Best Parody at the 2010 AVN Awards Show, which took place at the Pearl Concert Theater in the Palms Casino Resort.
Cosby look-alike Thomas Ward walked away with the AVN trophy for Best Non-Sex Performance for his spot-on portrayal of the Jell-O Pudding king—which, by the way, was the first time he had ever appeared in an adult movie.
“I was really hoping the movie would win, but I can’t believe I won the other award too. Next thing you know I’m on stage in front of the entire adult industry with my co-stars and producers,” Ward gushed shortly after the show. “I dreamt this would happen,” the Detroit-born comedian said.
Dreams apparently do come true, and because the movie is such a huge blockbuster at retail, X-Play and LFP Video are already putting the finishing touches on a big sequel, titled Not the Cosbys XXX 2, that is scheduled to be in stores Feb. 9.
Hustler/ LFP sales manager David Diamond had a lot to say about the X-Play spoof. “Our customers love Not the Cosbys XXX, and I really love these X-Play movies because every single one of them is a top-seller. Will Ryder creates some amazing flicks, and I can’t wait to see the sequel of Not the Cosbys XXX.”
Will Ryder picked up the 2010 AVN Director of the Year Award while Not the Cosbys XXX added to a list of impressive credentials that already includes the 2009 NightMoves Best Comedy/Parody Award and the 2009 XCritic Porn Movie of the Year honor.
Misty Stone, who played Denise Huxtable, was also an AVN finalist for Female Performer of the Year. She currently stars on Cinemax’ Co-ed Confidential and reprises her role in Not the Cosbys XXX 2.
Not the Cosbys XXX 2 will be released Feb. 9 by X-Play/LFP Video. Click here to see a trailer.
