My 2 favorite pron stars ever.\
What do you think are their best films?
Colt''s Naked Muscle: The New Breed features an unforgettable flip-flop fuck with Tom Chase and Carlo Masi.
There is some movie with Chase and Brad Patton that defines pornographic--and Chase was sort of out of hsape at the time.\
If Falcom wanted to make money, they''d dig up some Branson outtakes and sell them.
Branson dicks up Chase in California Kings.
[quote] Branson dicks up Chase in California Kings.\
Yea but the scene turned out to be a big disappointment. This could have been an epic scene in gay porn, but the director has them doing some sort of bizarre gymnastics style fucking that no one would ever do and that wasn''t the least bit hot or sexy to look at.
"...but the director has them doing some sort of bizarre gymnastics style fucking that no one would ever do and that wasn''t the least bit hot or sexy to look at."\
About 10 years ago, I was in a chat room with Tom Chase and some other guys, and he told us about that scene he had done with Mike Branson. He said that the two of them had come up with the idea for that gymnastics style fucking that you mention, and that they were really proud of it, because as he said, no one else had ever fucked like that on film before. I have always thought Mike Branson''s position in the scene is incredibly hot, although Tom looks uncomfortable to me.\
The other thing we asked him about was why the director didn''t let them flip during the scene, so that each of them could top. He said the thinking at the time was that basically they should only do one position or the other, but not both. He said as hot as it was to film the scene, it''s too bad they didn''t get to do a flip fuck afterall.
bump for Branson-mania 2012!
Funny for a straight guy Branson couldn't get enough of eating ass.
Too bad he got AIDS from Chase and died, funny cause Tom lives on.
I never could see what the big fuss was about Mike Branson. He was perfectly fine, but he didn;t ever drive me nuts the way Tom Chase did.
Now Tom Chase was really spectacular. He had one of the best bodies in porn in the mid 90s, and when he was younger his massive thick dick was always hard (that changed quite a bit when he got older and clean and sober), and he had this way of bugging his eyes a bit when he fucked someone and focusing really intensely on his bottoms that always blew my mind. His best films during this period: "Chasers" (especially where he fucks Akos Matsyas on the pool table), "Heatwave" (where he has the too-brief scene fucking Adriano Marquez in the hammock), "Hotwired" (when he fucks Kevin whatsisname in the pool) and especially "Fulfilled" (where he fucks Lane Fuller).
Later the rumor was that when he was so intense in these early scenes he was actually on drugs, and when he made his big comeback (not the 1st one with Falcon, when he was still superhot, but his 2nd comeback with Colt), he was now hairy and pudgy and not so sexually intense. His performances in this period suffer a bit, and he's sometimes paired with stars as unattractive as Skye Woods. But his best from this period, as someone above said, is "Hot Couples III," where he has an unreal sexual pairing with Brad Patton.
Interesting tale, Pete. I for one would have LOVED to see Mike bottom!! Btw I love that scene in "California Kings" but didn't thing Tom Chase did a great job in acting like it was the first time he'd ever been fucked.
As for other Branson films, I'm partial to the one flick where he sucked dick ... and I remember specifically that there was only ONE, period. He ate ass like a champ but apparently didn't like cocksucking, for some reason. The scene was in a bathroom with Brennan Foster, but I forget the name.
The three hottest scenes ever:
1) Tom Chase fucks Lane Fuller
2) Tom Chase fucks Tristan Paris
3) Mike Branson fucks the little balding blond guy in a gangbang
To "Anonymous," I agree with you about how hot Tom Chase's scenes were with Lane Fuller and Tristan Paris, but I would reverse them; I think the scene with Tristan was the better of the two. There is a brief part of that scene where Tom is fucking Tristan from behind (Tom is standing, and Tristan is kneeling on the edge of the bed), and--how do I put this in words?--Tom starts sort-of rolling his hips while he is thrusting slowly. I've watched that small clip over and over, forward, backward, in slo-motion, and speeded-up, and it still may be the hottest fucking motion I've ever seen. Just incredibly hot and an incredible turn-on.
By the way, I mention in my post above about an on-line chat I was in with Tom and some other guys, over 10 years ago, and what he told us about that scene he filmed with Mike Branson. Regarding the scene with Tristan--which he said was amazing to shoot--the thing that was most amazing was that they did it in ONE take, withOUT any stopping! About 15 minutes or so, just like a regular fuck. I gather that didn't happen very often! The director apparently felt they were both so good at understanding what made for good porn that he just let them do their thing.
Someone above said that Mike Branson got AIDS, from Tom, and died. I've never seen anything about that anywhere else, and I would question the truth about Chase having AIDS.
For r9. The vids that you mentioned for Mike Branson are "Basic Plumbing 2" for the three way in the bathroom and the one with the blond bottom is "The Chosen." Mike is in leather and also sucks cock in this one too. The bottom is Derek Cameron and you can see that Mike is really into him in more ways than one. The rumor was that they dated for a while after doing the film and before Mike became a Supreme Court Judge.
Post-surgery, Mike Branson now issues rulings from the SCOTUS bench under her new name, Elana Kagan.
Okay - Off topic, but what the hell happedned to Joey Hart? Anyone remember? Huge star and a stalker ran him out of the biz?
Branson also sucks dick in THE CHOSEN'S orgy scene. It's one of my favourites.
Branson rims ass and sucks dick in several films. With enthusiasm.
It amazes me that a porn star could be discussed so much online without a clue to his life outside of porn. (Outside of the legal practice, of course.)
Tom: Miss Julie (title role)
Mike: Anne of Green gables (title role)
I'm the Mary!!!
They both have AIDS.
Mike Branson is the man!
Pete at r11
I read an article a while back regarding the Chase/Branson scene which implied they were actually ready to flip, but that it was a financial constraint. Originally, they had agreed to the scene, but when it came time to film, they couldn't reach whoever was making the film to get approval for more money to pay for the additional, so had to go with the planned scene.
"Mike Branson looks like Josh Brolin."
Yes! Could someone please start a "Male Celebs and Thier Porn Star Doubles"? It would be fun, and worthy of endless (pointless) debate!
I was about to type, "This thread is useless without bootleg online videos," so here goes:
R31, where have you heard Tom Chase talking? He makes me weak in the knees whatever his voice sounds like, though.
Very disappointing if that's true, r27.
r34, I have heard him talk in videos. Most scenes involve speaking. As stated, he has a very femmy voice and his mannerisms are not very masculine. He seems to have a lispy type voice.
Can you imagine being in court, for something, and a defense attorney steps up, and it's Mike Branson ? And R 7, Branson is still very much alive, and practicing law - not having his cock sucked for money........although like most attorneys , he may still be at that too, to fill his coffers.
Dang, he was so friggin hot. He was like the protypical hot blue collar dude next door mixed with the college football quarterback in your dorm. He didn't have to pretend that he was the fantasy dude because he was. He looked the part because he was the part. No one laughed when he was in a scene in football pads or when he was the frat dude leading the pack of dudes or the hot plumber servicing a customer. He knew how to throw a football as well as he could throw a mean fuck. He embodied the fantasy dude that so many desire.
Did Mike suck cock?
Yeah, I wish more openly gay dudes were like Mike Branson. He is the type of Alpha Male that makes people realize that some gay dudes are all-man and totally normal masculine guys.
Mike never sucked cock, but rum butts and finger holes.
Here are some animated gifs of Tom Chase sucking Branson to ejaculation (coach's boys? locker room scene):
That scene with Tom and Tristan was so insanely hot.
Jesus Christo. That IS one of the hottest scenes I've ever seen. They were completely in to one another
I remember that oral copulation scene between Tom and Mike. However, if you look closely, it doesn't appear that Mike climaxed from being sucked. He climaxed from Tom's manual stimulation. The ejaculation occurs well after Mike has withdrawn from Tom's mouth.
Branson did suck dick on occasion in his films.
I thought he did.
MB is a living legend. Unreal how hot he is.
Branson is too hot. Chase was so feminine
H'es the better porn performer though
Tom Chase is the sexiest porn star ever. He made a brief comeback with Colt but disappeared off the radar again. He is the most beautiful man in the world to me. No amount of googling turns anything up on him now, though.
Tom Chase came across as very stereotypically feminine. A total turn off. In contrary, Branson is all man, iconic masculinity.
R62, he did not disappear after Colt. He first got fucked raw by poz porn actor Tim Kelly.
I don't care if he's feminine, he's still all man. I know he was already poz when he did that scene. And thanks for the link!
Branson was pretty short, right? I wonder what really happened to him? It seems like he disappeared. Just rumors about him, that's it. Poof.
The most likely answer to what happened to Mike Branson is pretty obvious, he was straight, did the films to pay off college debts, left porn when he made enough money, moved the Midwest got a job in engineering, met a girl, got married had kids and put his gay porn past well and truly behind him.
r68, straight dudes don't do gay porn, repeatedly. Mike Branson repeatedly put his mouth on and penis in men on camera for all the world to see. Heterosexual dudes never do that.
Branson is for all intents and purposes straight, his bi for pay or sexually
ermmm... loose, for the right amount of money, he was probably a bit bi, but like most the gay for pay guys say, off camera they are only interested in women.
Tom had a bad drug problem for a while, but he went sober.
He's a personal trainer in Dallas, I think. He abandoned the smooth hunky gymnast look for the hairy daddy look.
Someone post a link to the scene where he's in leather and fucks the blonde guy in a sling.
ANy sitings of MB?
Not into Tom Chase. He has very femmy mannerisms and voice. Very stereotypically non masculine.
[quote]Branson is the hottest dude ever in dude porn
How can that be if he was straight and, as a result, not into it?
I can tell you unequivocally that Mr. Branson is straight and totally into Latinas.
I love Thom, hard and smooth, beefy and hairy, top, bottom. I love it
Oddly, I loved Chase's weird embodiment of hypermasculine physicality (that incredible dick! still the dick of all dicks, IMO) and his slightly effeminate manner.
I loved Chase's (allegedly drug-induced) uber focus on his bottoms. The way he'd stare them down as he was spearing them with that alpha cock. YES PLEASE!!!
Brandon from Sean Cody is Mike Branson's son, according to a post on Trebby's blog. It would make a lot of sense, if you think about it.
That is SO not true, R83.
Tom fucking Tristan Paris is probably my all-time favorite porn scene. Both of them looked like they were experiencing out of this world pleasure.
I also liked the scene where Tom fucked Kevin Williams in an jacuzzi. Tom told him, "I'll show you my dick if you show me your ass."
That scene with Kevin Williams gets my nut every time. My favorite top vs my favorite bottom.
Mike Branson is SO much hotter than Josh Brolin.
I think half of the fans' obsession with Mike Branson comes from his scarcity and all the pent-up demand for him.
Branson did very few films then got the fuck out of the biz and went into hiding. We want what we can't have.
Methinks Branson wouldn't be so popular if he kept coming back or tweeted his brainfarts.
Guys, the "Mike Branson as Power Attorney" thing is a facetious, Datalounge meme.
JC Adams reported a few years ago that Branson is an engineer of some sort in the Southeast, that he's living quietly and wants no publicity or attention from his porn fans.
Adams is serious and he's in-touch with the porn producers who would really know and tried to get Branson to come back.
Let's not confuse running gags on DL for the truth!
But he's not gay, r48!!!!
LOL. A good role model for all men, but gay-for-pay.
Brandon is our modern Mike Branson.
No, Brandon does not have a face comparable to Mike Branson and he's just a child.
r91, Branson has/had a more mature, square-jawed, lantern face, which is very appealing. Brandon has a less square-jaw face, but still very goodlooking. He is more college jockish though than Branson, although Branson looks like he could be an athlete too.
r81, slightly effemin? Very.
Brandon couldn't model or act with his face.
Mike Branson is straight and overrated. His scenes were brain numbingly boring.
I think I've posted this before...it's not much of a story...
Years ago, I met Branson and Chase during promotional events held at the old Le Salon pornstore on Polk Street in SF. Chase was engaging and outgoing. Branson was seemingly uncomfortable, short, and dressed in neat prep attire. This was at the beginning of his career; he told me that he hadn't seen whatever porno movie he was promoting.
r96, it is clear that Branson wanted to hold the adult industry at arms length, whereas Chase was much more into living the porn star lifestyle. Branson apparently wanted to walk away from it with his privacy and personal identity intact. He did a pretty good job of doing so.
r94, act? this is not 1983, with full-fledge porn movies. This is the era of amateur scenes, not even movies.
I was comparing Branson and Brandon to the fashion industries and Hollywood, r98
Porn stars can never "blend back into society" now.
The internet will keep their activities on record long after they're dead.
According to an interview with John Rutherford, when they were filming the scene with Chase and Branson, Branson had been willing to flip and bottom for Chase.
However, they couldn't get in touch with the people running Falcon to arrange to have the scene changed (and pay Branson to bottom).
I am glad it didn't work out. Branson went out on top, mystique preserved forever.
Branson the typical boring and hugely overrated straight gay for pay performer, he was so boring and sexless he was unwatchable.
Wow, now Branson is the essence of fantasy Alpha Male. Is there anyone in the business like that today?
Chris Rockway comes closest, but still not as buff or as charismatic as Mike Branson. Mike Branson somehow was the epitome of the hot jock fantasy. He was the embodiment of the most popular fantasy dude.
[quote] Mike Branson somehow was the epitome of the hot jock fantasy. He was the embodiment of the most popular fantasy dude.
Speak for yourself. I like having sex with guys who are actually into me…not ones who are going through the motions for a paycheck.
r122, uh, you have that right, man. But you realize that porn performers working for studios are all "doing it for the check?" It is a job.
Mike Branson is the epitome of Alpha Male stud
If it's true that Tom Chase was only 5'8 then Branson couldn't have been taller than 5'9 judging from the pic of them standing next to one another. And you cannot be 5'9 and an Alpha Male.
