Tom Judson, Formerly Known As Gay Porn Star Gus Mattox, Hits New York's 54 Below With 'Nature Boy'

As fulfilling as the gay porn industry was for “Gus Mattox” (who nabbed a 2006 GayVN Award as “Performer of the Year,” shortly before his retirement), Judson couldn’t be kept away from tickling the ivories for too long. In 2009, he premiered “Canned Ham,” an acclaimed “theatrical memoir” which paired personal anecdotes with colorful musical numbers and then some.

It seems like every other male cabaret singer does "Nature Boy", with plenty of male musical performers sticking it on their shitty solo albums.

Ugh poor Nat King Cole. No one does it better (as far as male singers are concerned). I wish people would stop ruining this jam.

never found Gussie to be hot either btw

Miss Thing performs her cabaret act in a tank top? Attention whore much?

He's a textbook narcissist.

If he had any talent he wouldn't have done porn. The only people interested in seeing him are ancient porn addicts with a large VHS collection.

He's a nice guy, and a mediocre vocal talent. Broadway? Um, no.

It's like with actors or models (like Benjamin Godfre) who think they may not have a chance at making it big in their original profession so they make the best of the current sitation where they look hot enough for gay porn.

Oh My!

I met a theatre actress who did a porn film out of financial desperation. Then felt such self loathing, she couldn't have sex with her boyfriend for months.

R12, I met a theatre actress who did a porn film out of financial desperation. Then felt such self loathing, then he died.

Very average endowment. I saw him in P-Town with Varla. He was alright. Good luck to him.

[quote]Music, he says, was undoubtedly his first love;

But getting his cock sucked on camera for money, sure was a close second!

20 years ago was also when he hit his peak looks wise.

I find guys like Tom with his giant perma-grin, and worked-at breeziness obvious loons. Happy, confidant people do NOT go into gay porn, they just don't. Plus, the constant strip-teasey, semi-nude costume schemes of his shows belies a desperate need to be sexually objectified. Damaged goods, for sure.

Nothing more boring than a retired porn star who isn't buff of hot anymore.

Here's his self-published book of musings!

His real talents are with playing the piano: he actually wrote part of the score to Whit Stillman's film "Metropolitan."

Who would go to this show, though? It's not like he was a major porn star like Ken Ryker or Tom Chase; and he retired seven years ago.

He was always a superficial, opportunistic ass. I knew him back in the 80s. He was a joke.

Thanks for the tip R19. Just got his book from Amazon.

One of the fun things about Datalounge. Discovering things you didn't even know existed.
