It was only a matter of time before some of the D-list actors in the almost comical Innocence of Muslims were outed as porn stars and adult models.
We would laugh except that the self-righteous trailer apparently produced by local Coptic Christians has sparked outrage in the Muslim world for its depiction of Mohammed as a savage woman beater and child molester. A U.S. ambassador and three other Americans, including two Southern California-trained U.S. Navy SEALS defending him, were killed in Libyan violence that might have been inspired by the low-budget flick.
Of course, the existence of adult performers in such a pious tale probably won't take away any more credibility than the lowly work has already lost.
Some Muslim extremists view American pop culture as a scourge as it is: Using adult performers to help smear Islam is adding insult to injury.
First up on the porn front is one Tim Dax. The website Towleroad says he's a gay adult video actor.
The blogger Joe.My.God reached out to ask why he would participate in such a hateful project. Dax, like other actors, indicates he was duped by the director and says “I am very much NOT anti Muslim:”
i can tell you i auditioned for a movie called Desert Storm that was about Ancient Warriors. My character was called Sampson on the paper with a few lines I got each day upon arriving on set. We never saw a full script or any lines after the day we shot them. Many questions were asked regarding absurdity of lines and situations. Sam the producer who I believed to be, but not certain as Egyptian. His reply would always to work with what we were given as he wrote the script. The clip that I saw part of today for the first time is questionable as to being my voice.
Meanwhile a fetish model named Amina Noir appears to portray the doctor's wife in the film. She has listed herself as “a Playboy TV model, chef & actress.”
The website Bullies For Romney calls her a … “lesbian fetish model and wannabe porn actress.”
In a (NSFW) video from 2011 she's seen cavorting with adult stars on a tour bus purported to have been a former vehicle for the 2008 election campaign of President Obama. At about the 12:42 mark Noir is seen sprinkling a white powdery substance on the chest of a woman — it appears to be adult-world character Susan Block — and then licking it off before receiving a lap dance.
We have no problem with this kind of behavior. They even have a designated driver.
If only the Innocence of Muslims' makers could have been locked up on that party bus, lives would have been saved.
[Update at 5:49 p.m.]: Gawker reports that the film's director, Alan Roberts, is a veteran of soft-core porn.
