Marc Jacobs to make film debut as a 'porn baron' in Disconnect


Marc Jacobs is set to make his movie debut as he takes on a rather racy role in new film Disconnect.

Adding another talent to his endless CV, the American designer will play the role of a sleazy porn baron in the drama-thriller.

We're guessing he got a taste for acting after his stint as Diet Coke's shirtless hunt earlier this year. Although the role's real test comes with his character's questionable wardrobe. Uh oh.

Talking to Entertainment Weekly about his 'bad jeans', Marc Jacobs said, "Nobody would have recognised me at the Dunkin' Donuts in Yonkers…I had these really tacky suburban disco shirts with crucifixes embroidered on them, and the worst fitting dad jeans – I never wear jeans anyway – but these were just bad and acid washed, with flannel zip jackets sewn to the side. And they put big silver rings on my fingers and earrings."

But it seems his acting career has come to an abrupt end already, as he added, "I enjoyed parts of doing it, but you know, it's not ever been my dream to act or anything like that. It's probably the last time I'll ever do it."

Jason Bateman, Alexander Skarsgard and Paula Patton also star in the new film. Watch the trailer for Disconnect below…

    The Lotus Europa was one of the stranger sports cars of the '70s, but still managed to corner like a sheepdog thanks to its low weight and fiberglass body. This example caught by Dave Lindsay is fairly typical of the nicer early '70s Type 62 Europas Lotus exported to the United States; by today's standards they're odd, underpowered and unreliable — which means they have a fervent fan base.

    Inside MotoGP, elbow on asphalt at 210 mph

    In MotoGP, a most strange sport, compact, highly fit men, most of them Spanish, Italian, Japanese, or Australian, maneuver 350-lb., multimillion-dollar motorcycles around Formula One tracks at 220 mph while wearing computerized suits that inflate when they fall off at speed. It feels as though you’re watching Tron live, and the crashes are just as spectacular. Driving these things requires a lot of nerve, as well as generous levels of Euro-style machismo. The riders of MotoGP can’t walk down the street in Barcelona or Milan without being followed by screaming fans. They’re like some sort of unholy marriage between Daft Punk and Apollo astronauts. In the United States, they’re just guys walking down the street.
