Alaska And Michelle Visage To Star In Porn Star Biopic

Well you’ve heard of them:

Michelle Visage, one time pop princess and member of 90’s girl group Seduction has gone on to host TV and Radio, sometimes without RuPaul but of course is best known for her reigning stint as judge on RuPaul’s Drag Race.

Alaska, drag queen extraordinaire, is the runner up of RuPaul’s Drag Race season 5 and the winner of RuPaul’s Drag Race All Stars season 2.

In the varied world of drag and the culture that surrounds it, you don’t get much bigger than these two. Unless you’re RuPaul, natch. So now these two Drag Racers are teaming up to lend their acting talents in a biopic of porn star Joey Stefano.

Who’s Joey Stefano you ask?

He was the first porn superstar who was exclusively a bottom. Discovered by legendary porn director Chi Chi LaRue in the 90s, Stefano’s popularity even drew the eye of Madonna who included him in her iconic Sex book and her video for Deeper and Deeper.

Directed by Chad Darnell, who has previously worked on Magic Mike XXL and Miss Congeniality 2, the biography will tell the story of Stefano’s rise to fame and sudden end due to a drug overdose at 26.

Michelle Visage has been cast as Anita, a TV host providing a through-line for the film and Alaska will play Gender, a make-up artist who played in the band Johnny Depp Clones with LaRue.

The film will be based on Charles Isherwood‘s biography called Wonder Bread and Ecstasy: The Life and Death of Joey Stefano and is set to be released next year.
