About Him

Grew Up… as Eddie, a high-school drop-out with nothing much going for him. Even his mother isn’t impressed by him, and often lectures him about his poor life decisions.

Living... the high life. Eddie was just a busboy when he met Jack, who makes adult movies. At the time, Eddie was letting guys look at his private parts for cash. Jack noticed that he was unusually well-endowed, and recruited him to the porn industry. Now he has a mansion in Hollywood. Not so bad for a high-school drop-out.

Profession... porn star in a time when pornography had real stories: the 1970s. He’s well known for his foot-long asset, and he’s even won a couple Adult Movie Awards. He goes by the name Dirk Diggler for his movies, and even in real life nowadays.

Interests... partying with his fellow porn stars. Whether they’re dancing the night away or lounging by the pool, there’s plenty of beautiful women, and plenty of cocaine.

Relationship Status... single. Dirk has his choice of pretty much any beautiful woman he meets, at least within the porn industry and its admirers. But he thinks he might love Amber, another porn star.

Challenge... staying on top of the industry. Dirk compares himself to Napoleon, saying, "When he was the king, you know, people were just constantly trying to conquer him, you know, in the Roman Empire. So, it's history repeating itself all over again." But Dirk’s addiction to cocaine isn’t helping his performance, and there are younger stars waiting to take his place.

Personality... cocky… no pun intended. But Dirk is really insecure. That's probably why he wanted to be a star – to prove he’s worth something. He tells his mom, “You don't know what I can do, what I'm gonna do, or what I'm gonna be! I'm good!” But as he reaches stardom, it doesn't make him feel much better. Cue the moutains of coke…
