A documentary team follows a delusional soft core porn actor who seeks to cross over into the mainstream acting world.
REGIS FILMAN is a soft core porn actor who has recently been submitted for consideration for an AVN Award for his performance in an adult film entitled ‘The Buttler’. The potential nomination leads him to believe that he is ‘more’ than just a soft core star and he seeks to ‘cross over’ into the mainstream performance world by showcasing his skills as ‘method actor’. When the AVN nomination doesn’t go as planned Regis must rely on help from his roommate Jake and the rest of his friends to keep him focused on his method acting dreams.
