Lucas Signs Newcomer Jonathan Agassi

NEW YORK — Jonathan Agassi, one of the much-discussed castmates of Lucas Entertainment's blue movie "Men of Israel," has signed an exclusive performance contract with the all-male studio.

According to a studio rep, the 24-year-old "carved and lustful hunk" made his erotic debut in "Men of Israel" and has recently wrapped three scenes for "Paris Playboys," which is now filming in the City of Lights where Lucas Entertainment has opened a production office.

"Jonathan is an impressive performer. He has an amazing and passionate sexual energy that comes through in every scene," said company principal Michael Lucas.

"This force, combined with his flawless physique, makes him the perfect addition to the line-up of Lucas Entertainment exclusives."

Agassi's "Men of Israel" castmate Matan Shalev signed an exclusive contract late last month.

"I must say that my biggest dream is to be known all over the world for what I do best — sex," the performer said.

In related news, "Men of Israel" continues to crack the pop-culture glass ceiling. It was the focus of a segment on the E! Entertainment talk/comedy show "Chelsea Lately" last week.

The film was the subject of a rumination on Jewish identity in popular entertainment in "The Big Picture" arts and culture column penned by Patrick Goldstein for the Los Angeles Times.

The two-disc "Men of Israel" Special Edition set was released July 22. The company has been uploading photo galleries, erotic vignettes and related collateral to its promotional microsite
