I feel like Paul Carrigan was in porn so long he was directed by Edison. I don't remember a time when he wasn't in the dirty movies (he actually started around the mid-'90s and retired in 2006), I just remember spotting him and finding his thick, meaty build unique in mainstream, high-profile flicks. He looks like someone's overzealous dad at a Little League game who gets ejected for cursing out the umpire, or like a somewhat past-his-prime football player who's still knocking down more trim than guys half his age. And yet in movies, Carrigan—who is married in real life and an actual dad—is usually an absolute hog for it. That has to be his appeal. He's actually quite handsome, but I think it has more to do with his anything-goes air. Interestingly enough, he did many bi and straight films, too, and directs—he's now successful behind the camera on non-sexual movies like a little indie called Avatar (2009). He may be one of porn's greatest success stories.
