These days Jeff Griggs is a blue-eyed silver fox who can occasionally be found on TV shows like NCIS, Criminal Minds, Shameless or the Amazon original Bosch — a series that also features James Ransone and Nicholas Gonzalez. But in the late ’80s and early ’90s this mainstream TV actor had a youthfully indiscreet career as a gay porn actor under the aliases Tony Erickson and Tony Sinatra.
After tabloids outed his gay porn past, he was allegedly fired from the daytime soap opera Days of Our Lives because a female co-star refused to perform love scenes with a “faggot.” But he continued to find work on such ’90s TV staples as Beverly Hills, 90210, Babylon 5 and Silk Stalkings. I’m especially fond of his memorable turn as a psychotic male stripper in the erotic crime thriller Breaking Point, which co-starred Gary Busey and a pre-Sex And the City Kim Cattrall.
In these stills from Catalina Video’s Head Struck, Griggs plays a homophobic hetero who forgets his sexual orientation because of amnesia. This leads to a whole lot of experimental cock sucking and butt fucking as he tries to figure out if he’s gay or straight. Sure, it could happen…
