LOS ANGELES—Silly people. James Deen is not a former porn star. Far from it. But the folk at ABC News are having some difficulty getting that fact through their thickish skulls.

In a brief item on the release of a new trailer for The Canyons, Bret Easton Ellis' nod to noir, Jennifer Abbey writes, "The black-and-white trailer appears to be playing off the real lives of stars Lindsay Lohan and [co-star] James Deen, who previously worked in porn. Lohan’s character, Tara, is described as a 'sensuous woman,' and Deen as a 'potent new-screen personality.'"

Yes, Deen previously worked in porn. Thing is, he still does. Not a big deal, but we can't help thinking that some people just can't accept the fact that "Boy Next Door" Deen likes doing porn and that he has said many times that he does not want a mainstream acting career but wants to keep doing what he's doing as long as people want to keep watching him. What is so hard to understand about that?

Anyway, the item also has the trailer embedded, so enjoy that as you keep in mind that the cute and intensely potent guy who makes Lohan cry (see photo) is still a major porn star!
