If the dreams of two White Center based residents come true, that will change.  Anthony Lilly with the help of music producer Tommy Martin, actor Eric Roberts and some well known people in Hollywood have produced a half hour pilot episode for Ron Jeremy Does Hollywood, starring the now famous performer in over 2000 adult titles."It's a look at his real life in Hollywood and what he does day to day. His famous friends and the kind of things he goes through," said Lilly. "We have some amazing guest stars coming up that people might be surprised Ron knows, some genuine A-List actors who have said they'd love to be part of the show."  The show won't feature any x-rated material but will, both Jeremy and producers believe, be a story of personal transformation full of incidental humor, celebrity cameos, and the unique life that someone with Jeremy's past has created.  Clips from the show have Jeremy doing yoga, cooking, getting a pedicure, and clowning around with Eric Roberts and Lilly shooting hoops at the beach (Jeremy doesn't jump very high) and dealing with autograph seekers and admirers. He has done stand up comedy for a few years and confesses that it's not easy. It's quite likely viewers will see Ron with his prized friend "Cherry the Tortoise" a pet he treasures. Jeremy who has never been on a diet saw his body go from trim to obese as he lived a life of self indulgence eventually leading to an aortic aneurysm and open heart surgery in 2013. "I can trace everything bad that's happened to me to food. Food is the toughest addiction there is. I love to eat and cook but it's time," Jeremy said. Part of show's plan is to put him on healthy eating plan with a chef and get him out exercising to get his weight down. The pilot episode has been sent to 20 networks where it is "being seriously looked at" said Lily. Jeremy said if the show gets picked up "I l plan on taking the diet part of it very seriously." While essentially retired from on-screen adult performances for now, Jeremy has a long history of mainstream film appearances as well. He has appeared in films such as Reindeer Games, Detroit Rock City and The Boondock Saints. At age 64, with his heart in better condition Jeremy is able to travel to make personal appearances, often at film festivals, sex stores (as he did in Tacoma on Sept. 24), and to appear in upcoming films. He is also involved in his own brand of Rum Ron De Jeremy, and appears in an occasional raunchy web series Dinner with Ron. Lilly, as creator and Executive Producer has a varied history as a professional chef in Hawaii, then changing to photography. Always an artist in multiple mediums his talents as a lensman took him to Hollywood where he gained attention for his head shots of dozens of well known actors. Tommy Martin, who operates Speed of Sound Studios on Delridge Way SW helped choose locations for the original shoot, then re-edited and did audio work on the pilot. Audio Engineer Curt Nelson and Martin were recently recognized as co producers for the show. Incidentally Martin's son TJ Martin recently won an Emmy for directing and editing "LA'92" co directed with Daniel Lindsay and in 2012 an Oscar for his documentary "Undefeated." For now, the show is being shopped (and is getting some positive reactions they say) but Lilly and company have already planned for 22 episodes. if (typeof googletag !== "undefined") { googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag. }); } Ron Jeremy - Photo by Patrick Robinson Robinson Papers Add new comment Your name Comment About text formats Save if (typeof googletag !== "undefined") { googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag. }); } if (typeof googletag !== "undefined") { googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag. }); } if (typeof googletag !== "undefined") { googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag. }); } if (typeof googletag !== "undefined") { googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag. }); } if (typeof googletag !== "undefined") { googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag. }); } if (typeof googletag !== "undefined") { googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag. }); } if (typeof googletag !== "undefined") { googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag. }); } if (typeof googletag !== "undefined") { googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag. }); } if (typeof googletag !== "undefined") { googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag. }); } Tweets by WSSeattleNews Tweets by WSSeattleNews Publication Info Contact Advertise Monthly Archive Print Edition Terms Follow Us  RSS  Facebook  Twitter © 2017 Robinson Communications Inc.
