Blast From The Past for December 12th Steve Antin
The invention of the VCR certainly was welcomed by many gay youth who were able for the first time to watch movies, not always gay movies, which featured scenes of nudity which in the past were much harder to find. I have talked before about some of my favorite nude scenes, for me many of the most impactful scenes were from my teen years during the 80's. I saw 'The Last American Virgin' (1982) when my family finally got a vcr in the late 80's when I was about 12 or 13, and I am sure Steve Antin's performance, especially the 'measuring' scene is well remembered by more than myself. Steve Antin has a very interesting past and resume. Although this role may be best remembered by many, he also had great turns in 'The Goonies', and his great performance in 'The Accused'. Steve spent time on the tv guest shot circut and smaller movies, but his last acting role was in 'NYPD Blue' in the 90's. Steve has gone to become a producer, writer, director and even stunt man. Steve, who is openly gay was the boyfriend of movie mogul David Geffen during the mid to late 80's. Currently Steve spends his time focusing on producing and produces 'Pussycat Dolls Present: Girlicious' and is the brother of the founder of Pussycat Dolls, Robin Antin. Steve certainly has an interesting career, beginning with one of his most memorable roles in 'The Last American Virgin'.
