WEST HOLLYWOOD, Calif. — YouTube celebrity and recording artist Chris Crocker has been signed by director Chi Chi LaRue to appear in a hardcore film.

LaRu'e studio, Channel 1 Releasing (C1R) said that Crocker’s leap into porn has been rumored for the past two months and is now becoming a reality.

Crocker, 23, is best known for his personal YouTube video diaries and sketch comedy videos. His fan base grew after his “Leave Britney Alone” video went viral in 2007 making him an international web phenomenon.

Since then he has toured the talk show circuit, starred in commercials and launched a successful music career as an independent recording artist. His EP “The First Bite” is now available on iTunes.  C1R said he’s also starred in an NBC TV pilot earlier this year.

Crocker said, “I’ve already exposed every other part of myself on camera, haven’t I?” Having sex on camera with a stranger is actually a lot less revealing than many of the things I’ve posted on YouTube. The real question for me is: What is porn? Is it a lewd and lascivious exposure of yourself? Because I’ve done that clothed.”

LaRue said she hopes the movie will explore these themes and leave the audience asking themselves the same question. “I’m a big Chris Crocker fan. As a DJ, I play his music a lot and I love his videos where he tells it like it is. I want this movie to leave people asking themselves about the very nature of pornography and I want it to incorporate everything that Chris Crocker is: The video diary entries, the music, the artist, the freak.”

Crocker said it’s that exact reason why he’s agreed to do this project with LaRue. “We’re both freaks of nature. She knows I’m not just doing this to make a buck. It’s just an addition to my artistry and she gets my vision.”

The yet to be titled movie will be directed by LaRue and is set to be filmed in November.
