LOS ANGELES — XBIZ Award-winning performer James Deen will be profiled on ABC News' "Nightline" tonight.

The show, scheduled to air at 11:35 p.m., will explore Deen's rising popularity, especially among young women who find his persona to be that of just a regular guy next door.

"I'm kind of average, normal-looking, I don't know, I'm approachable," Deen told reporter Cecilia Vega.

Deen is the 2010 XBIZ Male Performer of the Year who has logged more than 3,000 sex scenes in his seven-year porn career.

Deen is definitely making a name for himself outside of Porn Valley, as just last week news broke that he was being eyed for a Hollywood role for a movie in development that has noted directed Paul Schrader and author-screenwriter Bret Easton Ellis attached.

Ellis, who penned the cult hit “American Psycho,” tweeted that he wanted Deen to star in the small-budget film noir.
