HOUSTON — Adult legend Ron Jeremy was spied shooting scenes for a new mainstream horror movie in Houston this week.
Porn’s everyman was on the set of Moffet Productions’ “Haunted Trailer,” where he plays an evil Mayan demon.
“The story is about a crazy hillbilly family who lives in a junky trailer, who has their trailer possessed by a demon,” writer/director Chuck Norfolk told MyFox Houston.
In a local on-air TV interview Jeremy said, “I've done about 2,000 adult movies - no wonder I'm so tired - and 200 mainstream films.
“I was a former school teacher. I'm licensed. I have two Bachelors (degrees) and a Masters. And my mother was a spy during World War II.”
Although Jeremy’s fans transcend a number of porn loving generations, young co-star Jacob Byrd was clueless about Jeremy’s fame and infamy.
“They were just as surprised on the set when they mentioned (Jeremy) and I was like, ‘Who?’ And they were like, ‘Whaddya mean, who?,’” Byrd said.
The film won’t wrap until the fall, but the director hinted that Jeremy’s character may take a hit from the hillbillies.
Norfolk said, “Even the hillbillies in the trailer park can save the world sometimes, yeah.”
