(Can’t wait to see the search results I get on this one…)
So, the other day I’m working from home, and (since I don’t have cable) my TV choices were Martha Stewart or Nash Bridges. I went with Nash Bridges. I was only half paying attention to the show, it was noise in the background, and I happened to look up at one point and narrowed my eyes. “Is that Ron Jeremy?”
IMDB is a fabulous tool. Figuring I would have better luck finding information using the name, rather than the TV show, I typed in Ron Jeremy. Sure enough, he was in an episode of Nash Bridges in 2000.
Here’s the thing – this is not the first time this happened. Back when I was dating Scottsdale, I sat him down to watch one of my favorite movies, Boondock Saints. We’re having a good-ole time, watching the movie, when suddenly my brow knit. “Is that Ron Jeremy?” That was followed by a brief, uncomfortable silence on his part, followed by, “Um, I think so…” I looked it up, and sure enough, it was! And then I realized that on roughly our fourth date, we had both admitted we knew who Ron Jeremy was. Aw-kward….
But here’s the thing – I’ve never seen any of his adult movies. Honest truth (you know I would tell you if I had). So I’m really not sure how I recognize him, I just do. It may be because I know a guy who looks like him. So much so that my acquaintance walked up to Ron in a club and Ron was taken aback, and has been quoted as saying, “Holy shit, so you’re the father of those kids.”
Actually, I heard an interview with him once, and I believe he said he’s been in over 80 feature films (that’s non-adultfilms) – although, I can’t make it through his film list on IMDB without blushing.
