I'm not exactly sure if any of our readers care about this, but this is the internet.  Vivid Entertainment, the group behind the incredibly successful Batman XXX: Porn Parody have set their sights on Star Wars and have just made their first casting announcement.

Lexington Steele will be playing Darth Vader.  I have no idea who this guy is, but apparently he's pretty big in the porn industry.

This sounds like something out of Kevin Smith's underrated Zack and Miri Make a Porno...

There is no word when it will be completed or released, but if I continue to be sent information, I'll continue to report on it.

From the press release:

Darth Vader may be one of pop culture's most recognized figures.  Acclaimed actor James Earl Jones famously provided the voice of the character and Dave Prowse played the role in costume. Together they created an unforgettable impression of intergalactic evil.

Steele is a multi-dimensional actor/businessman who was the first adult star to win Male Performer of the Year three years in a row along with dozens of other national and international awards. He is a graduate of Syracuse University and was a stockbroker before becoming an actor in the adult industry.

"Axel was totally determined to get Lex for the Vader role, he never even considered anyone else." saidSteven Hirsch, founder/co-chairman of Vivid. "We're all happy that he was available and excited about playing this iconic character."
