Porn Star Miyabi To Star In Indonesian Comedy



Is this a new trend? Is this now popping? Are porn stars the new black? Porn stars, gloriously transgressive (and, oftentimes, more than a little "messed up") are more and more appearing in mainstream vehicles. Remember porn star Sasha Gray in the Soderbergh vehicle? Remember Pam Anderson -- post-Tommy video -- embracing her larger-than-life sexuality at Fashion Week? Is this new validation of porn a consequence of the new hyper-democratic realities of this digital age?

If everything is more and more becoming dependent upon unique page views then -- other than cute animals -- what is a more reliable generator of hits than porn stars? From AsiaOneNews:

"Filmmakers in Muslim-majority Indonesia on Monday defied condemnation by clerics, saying they would stick to their plans to fly out a top Japanese porn star to act in a local comedy.

Muslim leaders have blasted plans to bring out 23-year-old erotic film megastar Maria Ozawa, popularly known as Miyabi, to play herself in the upcoming film 'Menculik Miyabi' (Kidnapping Miyabi).

"But Maxima Productions General Manager Adi Sudiadi said the company would stick to its plans to include Ozawa in the film, which tells the story of a group of university students who accidentally kidnap the starlet.

"'We guarantee that Miyabi won't be playing in a porn film here, we'll bring her here not as a porn star but purely for a comedy movie,' Sudiadi said.

"Miyabi is well-known by Indonesian people... we're expecting that Miyabi will attract a lot of spectators here."


You think? Charmed, I'm sure. But it is a kind of odd comedy involving the kidnapping of a porn star. We wonder what kind of audience that will attract.

On second thought, maybe we'd rather not.
