Ron Jeremy is not only an award-winning adult film legend, he’s also an acting nominee for his comedic turn in a new short film.
British Hustle, a spoof of the Oscar-nominated American Hustle directed by Sandro Monetti, is one of the parody shorts of Academy Awards’ Best Picture nominees playing at the seventh annual Toscars Awards Show — itself a parody of the Oscars ceremony.
Other send-ups include The Fox of Wall Street, 12 Days a Stripper, Knobraska and Cavity.
According to Page Six, the short film “sees the star of 2,000 porn flicks keeping his clothes on to play the equivalent of the Christian Bale con-man role — and delivering his lines in a British accent.”
So good is 60-year-old Ron’s performance that he’s been nominated for best actor at the upcoming Toscars, the awards for parody films.
He hopes to claim the trophy, the Golden Fist, at the Feb. 26 ceremony at LA’s Egyptian Theatre.
Jeremy says, “I’ve always been more of a giver than a receiver. But after all my adult movie awards, it would be great to win a prize for comedy acting.”
