LOS ANGELES—Award-winning adult and mainstream actor and radio and television host James Bartholet has received an AVN Nomination for "Best Non-Sex Performance" for his hilarious and critically acclaimed role of Curly in Not The Three Stooges XXX for Will Ryder Productions.

The upcoming 2013 Award ceremony will be taking place January 19 at the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Vegas.

"I’m very honored and thankful for this nomination," Bartholet said. "Not The Three Stooges XXX was a lot of fun to make, and I spent time studying and becoming the character of Curly. I want to thank everyone at AVN for acknowledging my work. I want to thank my fellow performers, all the production companies, and directors who helped make this a great year of filming."

Adult Film critic Don Houston at XCritic wrote this about Bartholet's role as Curly in Not The Three Stooges XXX: "James/Curly’s reaction was amusing to say the least, his role sure to be up for awards of all sorts."

Gene Ross from Adult FYI and Adult Cyber Mart said this of Bartholet's role in Not The Three Stooges XXX: "And now I’ll give you every reason in the world, and then some, for watching this movie, which is James Bartholet. Because Bartholet has that elastic, comedic quality about him which allows him to slip easily into an abundance of nonsensical characterizations, call him a victim of soycumstance by pegging him for this role. Long johns, bowler hat and all."

The veteran actor has been filming constantly for the industry’s top studios and directors.

Bartholet's latest roles include Spiderman Vs. Superman XXX for Vivid, Breaking Bad XXX for Sweet Mess Films, Not The Three Stooges XXX for Will Ryder Productions, Men In Black: A Hardcore Parody for Wicked Pictures, Dallas XXX for Adam & Eve, Cravings 2 for Wicked Pictures, and MacGyver XXX. Bartholet has just been cast as the Cowardly Lion in Will Ryder's Wizard Of OZ XXX parody.

Bartholet is also the costar and associate producer of the mainstream horror movie Isis Rising: The Curse Of The Lady Mummy for Tom Kat Films coming out in January 2013.

Bartholet is also the spokesman for RELOAD Male Enhancement Pills.

Bartholet hosts the popular weekly Inside the Industry with Tia Cyrus. The radio program is heard Wednesday nights from 8 pm to 9 pm PST, and rebroadcast daily here and here. The program is a huge hit on the Internet with members of the adult film industry and fans coast to coast and worldwide.
