Will Ryder and Thomas Ward Return to Cosby Show

HOLLYWOOD, Calif.—Bill Cosby's got his fair share of legal problems, but one man's misery can be another man's marketing opportunity. On October 20, X-Play finally releases the DVD of Will Ryder's latest X-rated take on Bill Cosby with new bits by impersonator Thomas Ward that spoof the sitcom star's newfound infamy.

Called Not Bill Cosby XXX: Puddin' My Dick Where it Don't Belong, the sex flick features Ward as Cosby in a series of television interviews with a news reporter delving into the sexual assault allegations levied by numerous women.

Check out some of the footage from the new release in a trailer up now on YouTube.com.

The DVD will be released via Pulse Distribution. Ryder reports that with Bill Cosby making big news, Not Bill Cosby XXX: Puddin' My Dick Where it Don't Belong is getting strong DVD orders.

"Bill Cosby is an iconic American figure, so this is really a huge story and there seems no end to the parade of beautiful women coming forward with their personal stories," Ryder remarked.

"I hope moms use this as a teaching moment for their daughters and let them know there's probably nothing good coming from jumping on a rap or rock music tour bus following a concert at one in the morning or visiting your favorite actor late at night in his hotel room," he added.

Ryder emphasizes that X-Play is not assuming or stating that Cosby is guilty of any crime associated with the public accusations levied against him. "We are only creating a humorous parody of his life and that of his TV show because that's what we do." And X-Play further notes, in CYA mode, the parody "is funny as hell but it is not endorsed, sponsored or created by Bill Cosby, NBC Television, Carsey-Werner Productions, Viacom Enterprises, Paramount Domestic Television, or any of their distributors, actors, producers, writers or their assignees."
