Axel Braun to Hold Open Casting Call for Musical 'Grease' Parody

LOS ANGELES—Director Axel Braun is looking for a few good porn actors ... who can also sing and dance.

That's right, the madman behind such huge hits as This Ain't Happy Days XXX and This Ain't Star Trek XXX (both from Hustler Video), as well as the forthcoming Batman XXX from his Axel Braun Productions and Vivid Entertainment Group, is gearing up to make bona fide Travoltas and Newton-Johns out of porn's finest in his next co-production with Vivid, an X-rated parody of beloved musical Grease. And he will be holding open auditions for the movie at the Vivid offices next Monday, Mar. 8 beginning at 2 pm.

"I'm a huge fan of the movie, and as usual I intend to be very respectful in my spoof," Braun told AVN. "Grease has a huge cult following, and I want the fans to have fun with my parody."

There will be five full song-and-dance numbers in the production, and the actors will be required to execute them all on their own.

"I intend to shatter the stereotype that porn people lack real skills," Braun said. "Many performers are incredibly talented individuals who have simply chosen to make their living in the adult industry for personal reasons. Grease XXX will give all of them a real opportunity to shine."

Braun added that, "We will have three weeks of rehearsals for the dance numbers with a famous Hollywood choreographer, and I'm working with a group of incredible musicians on the songs."

The two-disc release, scheduled to debut in September 2010, will include a CD soundtrack of all the songs, Braun noted.

The Vivid offices are located at 3599 Cahuenga Blvd. W., Los Angeles, CA 90068. Those interested in further information about the audition may contact Braun at [email protected]. Performers are also welcomed to simply show up between 2 and 5 pm Monday.
