James Deen on NASA space list

Los Angeles, Sep 27 (IANS) Porn star James Deen might be among the first civilians to go into space, and he thinks it is "cool".

The 27-year-old's mother and father both work for NASA and they are hoping their son will be a part of world history someday, reports contactmusic.com.

"I am on a list to go into space. My dad put me on it. He thinks I'll be one of the first civilians to go into space... I don't think it'll happen, because I smoke and I'm not that physically fit, but it's kind of cool," he said.

The actor says his parents have no problems with what he does for a living.

"My parents have always been supportive. They learned quickly that I was going to do whatever I wanted to do.

"When I started making adult films, their main concerns were health and safety. I assured them that working in porn is like working at McDonald's or at a bank... It's a job," Deen told Playboy magazine.
