Justine Off Broadway

Via AVN, Fleshbot, and The Villager comes news of porn's latest crossover success, this time one of my long-time favorite performers, Justine Joli, who has been cast in a starring role in the play Caligula Maximus, playing the Caesonia, the consort of the God Emperor.

Joli's crossover into Off-Broadway Theater rekindles an old link with the porn world, as much of the early talent in porn came out of that milieu. (Among them, Paul Thomas, who first cut his acting chops in Hair and Jesus Christ Superstar.) Not to mention with the story of Caligula: the producers of the play are emphasizing that this will not be a theatrical version of the 1979 movie, there's probably no way of recounting that history without making it at least a bit smutty.


  1. As a long-time friends and cheerleaders for Ms. Jolie, who has appeared in about 25 of our pictures, we had some advance warning on this news, but embargoed it until the official announcement, not wanting to jinx anything.

    It's a great break for a truly great person and Nina and I hope it leads to many more opportunities for this most deserving and talented young woman.

  2. I've always said that Justine Joli has serious talent beyond the....ummmm, obvious; it is great to see someone discover that.

    Sincere congrats to her, and may she enjoy so much more success whatever she does.
