LOS ANGELES—Wicked Girl Stormy Daniels is continuing to add to her list of mainstream credits with her latest appearance in the new film “Finding Bliss.”

The movie opened in June at select theaters in New York in L.A. and on Aug. 3 will be released nationwide on DVD.

Daniels plays herself in the comedy, which explores the adult industry through the eyes of idealistic film school grad, Jody Balaban (Leelee Sobieski), who moves to Hollywood with big dreams and then lands a job editing porn.

The award-winning Louisiana native had had similar parts in the films "Knocked Up,” “The 40-Year-Old Virgin,” “The Girl Next Door,” "Party Down" and on the TV show “Dirt,” among other mainstream roles.

Produced by Phase4 Films, “Finding Bliss” also includes cameos by veteran studs Ron Jeremy and Mr. Marcus. It is the latest project from writer/director Julie Davis, who based the story on her real-life experiences as a struggling filmmaker in Hollywood.

The premise entails Jody taking a job at Grind Productions, where the shrewd CEO Irene Fox (Kristen Johnston) challenges her to bring a romantic, female point of view to the hardcore material. When Jody is paired with rakish adult director Jeff Drake, the sparks fly.

Jody starts to embrace her sexuality as she gets aroused by the erotic material she once harshly judged. And she finds an unlikely friendship along the way with porn star Dick Harder (Jamie Kennedy). For more information about the film, visit
