Rock star Dave Navarro is directing porn, as was inevitable considering his proximity to this world over the past few years.

Dave Navarro: Broken was shot this summer for Teravision and features Sasha Grey, Jenna Haze, Victoria Sin, Audrey Bitoni, Kayla Page, Lisa Daniels, Tommy Gunn, Marco Banderas, Mark Davis, and Spyder Jonez (but not Tera Patrick).

Porn world shorthand for Navarro's music career has always mentioned his role as guitarist for Jane's Addiction (currently broken up) and also the Red Hot Chili Peppers. Navarro has been with Jane's Addiction through all its incarnations but only played with the Chili Peppers for 1995's "One Hot Minute" album.

But his work as a hired gun has also been impressive. He has played with Christina Aguilera, Marilyn Manson, and was featured on Alanis Morrisette's 1995 "Jagged Little Pill". Currently, he fronts the band Panic Channel, hangs around porn, and is involved in a number of new media ventures, including Spread Entertainment.

Navarro's dabbling in porn was an open secret this year, and the question was which side of the camera he'd show up on.

"We're trying to get him to perform, but I don't know if he'll do it," Teravision president Evan Seinfeld told me in July. Navarro does not perform in Broken.

Navarro, whose father was a Spanish immigrant, grew up in Los Angeles and has led a rich and varied life. Married and divorced three times, most recently to Carmen Electra, Navarro co-authored his biography, "Don't Try This At Home", with "The Game" author and Jenna Jameson's ghostwriter, Neil Strauss.

Even more autobiographical is Navarro's solo album "Trust No One", which is excellent.

Teravision decribes Broken's protagonist, Sasha Grey, as "a young woman torn apart by the duality of control and powerlessness in her life." Navarro told adult trade publication XBiz that he wanted the movie to contain themes of empowerment without being "grandiose".

Dave Navarro: Broken was released this week.
