7 Movie Stars Who Began Their Careers In Porn

4. Robert Kerman

CannibalPorn Titles: Debbie Does Dallas, The Satisfiers Of Alpha Blue Mainstream Titles: Cannibal Holocaust, Eaten Alive!, Cannibal Ferox Most porn stars turned actors tend to move slowly into film, with their previous experience in front of the camera not pushing their career prospects any higher than those fresh off the bus into LA. But for Robert Kerman things weren€™t so arduous; his first major film role put him as the star. An incredibly influential film in the found footage sub-genre that merged together POV filming and traditional narrative, Cannibal Holocaust probably had the established erotic actor front and centre because it was never intended to be as important as it ended up being. A typical video nasty, the Italian film tells the aftermath of an attempted documentary on Amazonian cannibals and kicked off a whole new direction for Kerman€™s career. Through the eighties he starred in a few more films in the incredibly specific niche of cannibal films with questionable morals, but he never forgot his origins; all the while Kerman was happy to keep pumping out porn.
