(LOS ANGELES, CA) -- LA Direct Models, the largest and most prolific agency in adult entertainment, announces the signing of adult industry legend Tom Byron.
Coming up on his 30th anniversary in the business, Byron is still one of the most coveted actors in the adult business. A two-time AVN Performer of the year, his awards continue to pile up. He was the 2011 AVN Best Actor winner for the Big Lebowski: A XXX Parody and the 2010 XBIZ People’s Choice Male Star of the Year and has already been inducted into the AVN and XRCO Halls of Fame.
"LA Direct is going to help me organize and even further my acting career," says Byron. "I’m thrilled to be entering this partnership with the most recognized name in adult talent."
"We are delighted to have Tom join the family at LA Direct," says owner and founder Derek Hay. "We look forward to working with him in all capacities. 30 years in any business is an accomplishment, but to maintain the high level of performance that Tom has is unheard of these days. He is truly one of the all time greats in adult entertainment."
Up next for Byron is a starring role in the Star Wars parody as Obi-Wan.
