...Mark: How different is it working for Colt than with Falcon?
Like maybe with Marcus Iron
...A Conversation with Marcus Iron
Hard to believe that Marcus Iron
has been in this business for eight years.Like Lane Fuller, he did a lot of work for Falcon, and "Reload" is his first for Colt Studio.Mark
: I understand you lived in New England for a while.Marcus
: Yes - my partner and I lived in Provincetown for a couple of years. M:: Full time?Not much goes on in the winter.Marcus
: It was kind of crazy.It's like a morgue in the winter. M: How many years have you been doing porn?Marcus
: Eight years now.I enjoy it.I don't do a lot, maybe two or three movies a year.It's a fun hobby. M: Where are you from originally.Marcus
: Montana.It's an exciting place, all right.I left at 16 for college.I lived in Boston for a year, and did bicycle tours all over this country and in Europe.It was a great way to see a lot of places in a fun way, and stay in shape.M: How did you get into porn?Marcus
: It was a natural fit.I'm a really sexual guy with few hangups.A friend of mine hooked me up, and that was that.My first one was for Hot House called "Splashdown," it was sort of an alien-invasion porn.Brian Mills directed it.M: He's
come a long way since that one.Marcus: I stayed with Falcon for the longest time, til John (Rutherford) moved over to Colt.I like working with John.
I think Colt
is a great fit for John
lets guys be guys.M: You haven't changed much since you first started.Marcus
: I have, I've gotten older.I take care of myself.Actually, I could probably use about six months of hard labor.I try to stay active wheher I'm hitting the gym or not.M: What's your favorite movie?Marcus
: That's a tough one.My favorite scene was the first scene I did with Alex LeMonde for "Reload
."That was really hot - we finiished the whole thing in about 35 minutes.I think that's a world record.M: Could be.Marcus
: The second scene, a group scene, was a close second.I was really into the guys I was with, so it was easy. M: Did you get to pick the guys you played with in Falcon
: More often, they would pair us up.I'm pretty easy going as far as who I work with - obvioulsy, some guys I'm into and some I'm not.If I'm not into the guy, I try to give it my best shot anyway.M: So to speak.You sound so easy-going that nothing is going to bother you anyway. Marcus
: Yeah, that's kinda me. California's definitely taken hold of my attitude. M: How do you think the industry has changed over the years?Marcus
: I think the biggest change overall is that there are more guys willing and able to do porn.The studios used to work hard to recruit, now guys a clammoring to do it.It's more accepted now. M: Any guys in particular you'd like to work with?Marcus
: Everybody I worked with, we got along well.It will be interesting to see who John
signs on in the next year or two.He's
got a good eye. M: What do you do in your real life?Marcus: I'm a garden designer.
: I was in a relationship for five years.We broke up about two years ago, but we're still really close.He's
not in the business.M: No interest in it?Marcus
showed up on a couple of sets to help out off screen.Chi Chi begged him several times to work on-screen, but it just wasn't his
thing. M: More work coming up with Colt?Marcus
: Well, it's up to John
, but hopefully.I'm making myself available.
