(By Baxie) Ron Jeremy is my favorite actor. There. I said it. I said it without shame. I said it without hesitation. Ron Jeremy is a freak of nature. Ron Jeremy gives us hope. He may not be physically appealing. In fact he might even be physically repulsive. Yet, the man has starred in over 1,700 adult films including some of my favorite titles such “King Kong DongsVolume 2”, “Anal Wedding”, and “Girls Who Take is Up the Ass #21”.
These are priceless works of art. Unfortunately, Ron Jeremy’s filming schedule has been tragically interrupted by an aneurysm near his heart. Ron, also known as “The Hedgehog” has undergone two separate operations to remove the aneurysm. He is still listed in critical condition. He is expected to spend the next two weeks in a Los Angeles hospital. It’s as if the world is holding its breath–waiting anxiously for the next update on his tender condition.
I met Ron Jeremy in 2004. We were at the Just for Laughs Comedy Festival in Montreal. I desperately wanted to interview him that night. But we never got the chance. Ron was being pulled in a million directions. Everybody wants a piece of Ron Jeremy’s time. Others just wanted more specific pieces. I just wanted to meet him and pick his brain. After all, here I was talking to the man who starred in “Black Cherry Co-eds 2 and 3”, “World’s Biggest Gang Bang 2”, and “Ass Masters 3, 4, and 5”.
This isn’t just some half-rate actor with no talent. When Ron Jeremy was in a video he owned the moment. He was the most spectacular attraction on screen. You simply could not look away. You wanted to. But it’s impossible. Ron Jeremy never failed. When he came on the screen, (or anywhere else for that matter) you knew where he was coming from. Ron was such a commanding actor that whether it was in “Big Boobs in Buttsville”, “Double Penetration Virgins 3”, or the preeminent moment of his colossal body of work “Guy Who Suck Their Own Cock”–you knew that when Ron Jeremy was in front of the camera that shit was about to get real.
Ron Jeremy was blessed with many gifts. He loved people. He had tremendously athletic ability. More importantly he had the ability to make men feel as though any slob could star in adult films such as “Juice Box”, “Ubangi’s on Uranus”, and “Stuff Your Ass 2”.
Today we stand by Ron Jeremy–hoping and praying that he pulls through and is able to resume his place as the greatest American actor in history. Be well my dear friend. My prayers are with you.
