Before he joined the cast of NBC's recently relaunched American Gladiators and began wielding gigantic Q-tip shaped battle thingies, Alex Castro, the drop-dead gorgeous massive mound of muscle, was wielding more "personal" and impressive clubs as a highly-paid gay porn model. Much of the overnight controversy over Alex's history in Porn Valley for his work at COLT as "Elian Cortez" but actually Alex Castro posed as, well, "Alex Castro", for a number of muscle worship studios (NSFW), Playgirl, and his recent star turn in Cirque du Soleil's Zumanity.
This morning, producers at American Gladiators have a clever, albeit revisionist spin to Alex's previous work: "It looks like all he did for COLT was to pose for some nude photos with no involvment in films of any kind." Not entirely true. Alex Castro has appeared in several films which are uploaded at his Yahoo Group (NSFW)—although not at COLT and in, umm, solo settings. A simple Google search could have revealed this, but, not that we're complaining.
American Gladiators will be NBC's new must-see-tv.
