Press Release: Adult and mainstream actor and radio host James Bartholet is one of the few people in Hollywood who balances a career between adult and mainstream.

After six years in the industry and roles in numerous films every year, veteran actor and parody mainstay James Bartholet has finally received some recognition for being one of the most prolific faces in adult films today. Bartholet received a 2011 AVN Award for “Best Non-Sex Performance” for his multi-layered comedic performance as Bosley in “Not Charlie’s Angels XXX” (X-Play/Digital Sin).

“Thank you again to AVN, and I also want to thank Jeff and Scott at XPlay for casting me in this role, and giving me the creative room to expand the character of Bosley,” stated Bartholet.

Bartholet was also nominated for a 2011 XBIZ Award for “Acting Performance of the Year – Male” for his leading role and first sex scene in Dick Chibbles’ hit “SAW: A Hardcore Parody” (Blue Circus Ent./Pulse) This was his first on camera sex role, paired up with the adorable and sexy Emy Reyes.

Some of Bartholet’s recent hit parodies releases include; “The Rocki Whore Picture Show” for Wicked Pictures that comes out in April 2011, “Not Rocky XXX” for XPlay to be released in May 2011, “Not Jennifer Lopez XXX” for X Play coming out in April 2011, and from Hustler; “Hollywood’s Untrue Stories Oprah”, and “Not Cops XXX” which are both in stores now.

Bartholet is also completing filming on “Spiderman XXX” and “Spiderman Meets Superman XXX” for award winning director Axel Braun for Vivid. Bartholet portrays Doctor Octopus. “This was a lot of fun to do, the costumes, sets, and special effects were fantastic. We put so much details into our movies and parodies nowadays, it’s very much like a mainstream movie,” added Bartholet

“If someone would have told me ten years ago that I would be starring in adult films, I probably would not have believed them, but hey, here I am, and I’m loving every minute of it. The movies we make now are so much better, and the fans really love them. I have a bigger fan base now, than when I was in just working mainstream only, but I’ve been blessed to be able to bridge that gap, and work in both industries. Sure, there’s a few times when some production companies wouldn’t hire me because I work in adult, but for the most part it’s pretty accepted now,” stated Bartholet.
