He joins fellow exclusives Ty LeBeouf, Alex Collack, Vince Ferelli, Johnny Gunn, Ross Hurston, Kyle King, Evan Matthews, Tony Mecelli, Paul Wagner and Ethan Wolfe.
Van Sant moves to Hot House following an exclusive run with Titan Media, where he earned a rep over the past several years for his predilection for fetish play.
He was lured to Hot House in part by its subsidiary labels with a focus on extreme fetish, such as Plain Wrapped Video and Club Inferno, for whom he shot "Up Yours."
Director and company founder Steven Scarborough was "the first director to devote entire movies to fisting and buttplay. So I feel like I’ve come home to Hot House," Van Sant said. "They really are the first, and best, at fetish."
A studio rep described Van Sant’s erotic vignette for "Up Yours" with Evan Matthews as "eye-popping." Hot House will begin to pre-release scenes online next week at its Hot House Backroom membership site in advance of retail release August 10 and wholesale distribution on September 7.
"We couldn’t be more excited to add Rick" to the Hot House roster, Scarborough said. "One look at this disarming, dimpled grin and you think he’s innocent. Then you see him in action and you realize he’s a voracious ass-man that’s not nearly as innocent as he seems. Rick is the perfect addition to our all-star lineup."
In related news, Hot House is currently flacking hardcore fetish flick "Skuff 4: Downright Fierce," which hits the wholesale market later this month. For sales inquiries, visit Paladin Video online or call (800) 228-8395.
