Working as a Stuntman

I always loved watching those action movies with policemen chasing criminals,  gun shootings and car explosions, while siping my tonic water and enjoying some popcorn on my couch. How little did I know about all the work that is involved in each single take of those hollywood productions until I started working and training with the stuntmen.

The first time was for the movie Biutiful, with Javier Bardem.  I had to work out for a month to get the part, take two weeks of training with the stunts, and shoot for 14 days, 11 hours a day. All for just one little flash in the final cut! I have to say I was disapointed when I saw the movie, mostly because I was not able to recognize me or my pals, the scene moves so quick and is shot with a moving camera effect. So if you want to see a nice close up of me in action,  better watch Criminal Intent or Thrill Ride, you will enjoy more! But the experience was really exciting, and the things I learned there, you just don’t learn them in acting school.

I felt like joining the army; the discipline was very severe, but it was necessary to get into the skin of a special commando agent. The scene was shot in the middle of the city and we were wearing real uniforms and real guns. I had to know how to use them, how to hit, fight and capture a criminal like a real cop, put the cuffs on and all that sort of thing. All had to look real, dramatic, and without hurting anyone. We had real cops and stuntmen trainers showing us all the tricks.


After being trained for that scene, I’m getting plenty of jobs in that line for tv and movies. You know, there is always a role as a cop in a movie!  So maybe one day you are sitting in the movies with your friends and go like: “hey, that cop there, thats Dario! …and he even got his pants on!”

One thing I can tell you for sure, it was the best work out ever! Those guys really have a unique workout technique, and the results where amaizing.

I lost fat gaining weight at the same time, and my muscles where feeling better than ever. For that kind of work, you need a lot of strength and flexibility not only in your torso and abs, but in your legs.

I had to stop doing that, because my legs started getting too big, I couldn’t bring them into the skinny jeans I had to put on for the fashion catalogs.

What a Crazy Life!

This recent trip to SF was full of new experiences and surprises.

I loved visiting Alcatraz, walking through the Castro and having my cheeseburgers at Harveys, wich is kind of a tradition for me everytime im in SF!

It was so funny to step into this poster suddenly, I went like “ow thats porn, ow thats me!”

That’s from the movie Game On (obviously, lol) that you can see here.

People that recognized me on the street and in the clubs where very casual and friendly. I met some really nice and cute guys!

The fourway with Trenton Ducati, Christopher Daniels and Spencer Reed was brutally hot. I was unable to sit straight on my flight back to Europe, and it was a 14 hour flight with lots of turbulence over the Atlantic Ocean.

Back in Europe again I had the chance to audition for a new spanish daytime drama. The role was a gay son of a rich family that gets abused and blackmailed by his stepfather. Here is how I showed up.

I totally nailed the audition. Even was able to cry on camera, they loved it. Two days later my agency calls me and tells me I’m not gay enough for the role, they want a real gay boy. (then she adds textually): “you know, a men who likes men” WTF! I am totally gay, and proud of it! I just shoot a fourway with three guys, shouldn’t that be gay enough?

I should have sent them the link to my movies, and maybe flirting with the female casting director wasn’t such a good idea (was just trying make some extra points).

Crazy business!

Coming Soon… 4-Way

While I was in San Francisco last time I shot a 4 way scene with Christopher Daniels, Trenton Ducati and Spencer Reed. I’m told it’s not the only four-way in the movie we were shooting that’s called “Command Performance.” It will be out very soon. Looking forwards to you seeing it.

Distraction – the Perfect Porn Shoot

It’s not easy to choose one of all my favourite movies I’ve done so far, I will pick up a few, starting with Distraction.

You can click here to see clips from this movie.

When Brian Mills told me I was going to work with Marco Blaze and Dean Flynn in that scene, I was totally excited. It was my first time shooting in California and meeting the guys in the Palm Springs house was awesome. All I always had fantasized about American porn was there.

Two of my favourite porn stars smiling at me by the pool, surrounded by palm trees under the hot California sun. WOW! But I had no idea about the great sexual chemistry there was going to be between the three of us.

It was the most perfect three-way; we were connected in a very relaxed way, like buddies exploring each others bodies. And there was a lot to explore! I was playing the pool boy, distracted from my work as I see some hanky panky going on between Dean and Marco. I love to play the voyeur, especially when I get to join the party. A smile from Marco is all I need to get busy with a more satisfying occupation

After the first round, we moved inside the house and there it was, A BED! A king size, freaking comfortable bed! Something very rare in porn. I mean I have nothing against concrete floors, stoned patios, steel tables, or tiny chairs, but sometimes it feels so good to have a bed, especially for three big guys like us.

It was hard work, but a big pleasure to shoot!
