Lexi Belle Joins 'Empire' Cast

LOS ANGELES—Adult superstar Lexi Belle adds her name to the slated cast of Axel Braun's proposed megaproduction The Empire Strikes Back XXX: An Axel Braun Parody, currently seeking crowdfunding through Indiegogo.com.

"Lexi Belle is by far one of the most beautiful adult stars in the industry, and she is also totally awesome and fun to be around, so I'm very happy to welcome her aboard," Braun said. "Her popularity, combined with her award-winning talent, made her an easy choice when we were looking to add top-of-the-line talent that fans would be willing to support."

Belle, who memorably played Batgirl in Braun's 2010 parody Batman XXX: A Porn Parody, has racked up an impressive heap of industry honors, including eight AVN Awards, three NightMoves Awards and trophies from the XRCO, FAME and others.

"I couldn't be happier to be added to the cast," Belle said. "I love Axel, and this is a dream come true for me—one I've been waiting for too long. I know my fans are really going to appreciate this movie and what it stands for, so get ready and help us make this happen, because ... Lexi strikes back!"

Other cast members already announced for The Empire Strikes Back XXX: An Axel Braun Parody include returning headliners Allie Haze, Lexington Steele and Seth Gamble (from Braun's Star Wars XXX: A Porn Parody) and new players Carter Cruise, Aiden Ashley, Riley Steele, Casey Calvert, Dani Daniels and Wicked Pictures contract star Asa Akira.
