Lindsay Lohan To Act Opposite Jewish Porn Star

Lindsay Lohan and Jewish porn star James Deen nailed it. The chance to star in the upcoming film “The Canyons,” that is.

Lohan, who is currently shooting “Liz & Dick,” the Elizabeth Taylor biopic for Lifetime, will work alongside the popular Jewish boy next door in a contemporary thriller that promises a plot filled with power struggles, sex and success. The co-stars will play two of five young adults trying to find their way in modern day Los Angeles.

According to producer Braxton Pope, Christian (Deen) is a “trust fund kid, power player and major manipulator, who is a film producer that enjoys filming his own three-way sex sessions,” and his girlfriend Tara (Lohan) is a former model who “has sold her pride for the material comforts Christian can provide.” The screenplay for the film was written by Bret Easton Ellis, the twisted guy that brought you “American Psycho.”

Deen has gained a devoted following for his wholesome good looks and big blue eyes, and his lack of giant biceps and tattoos set him apart from others in the porn industry. He claims to be “overpaid,” sometimes making up to $20,000 in one month. Deen has starred in over 2,000 adult films since beginning his career at the age of 18 in 2004. Now he can add starring with Lohan to his resume.
