Mr. Marcus in Animated HBO Short

LOS ANGELES - Adult performer Mr. Marcus appears in an eight-minute animated short now running on HBO called "Porn Editor."

Conceived by and co-starring Brian Shackelford, "Porn Editor" concerns a young man who dreams of editing giant Hollywood films but pays his bills by cutting movies of the pornographic persuasion.

"Brian used to be an editor at Hustler, and he came to me about two years ago to do some voiceover," Marcus told AVN, "and it ended up picked as a finalist out of 500 entries by young black filmmakers. And late last year, he was in the top five, then he came in third place. As a reward, to showcase it, they have it on HBO."

Marcus previously did a cameo for Shackelford in the low-budget feature Da Munchies. The popular performer recently wrapped a mainstream film shoot with Ron Jeremy.

"This is getting a good response - they may take this on and make it a bigger series," said Marcus. "It's very different, and very funny."
