Mike Horner Porn Star
Mike's a mustachioed fun-lover who has enjoyed one of the lengthiest careers ever in front of the hardcore cameras. Known as much for his skill at delivering comedic dialogue as for delivering down and dirty sex, Mike's considered one of the best actors among all porno studs. That only makes sense, since he's been studying acting and filmmaking for almost 20 years. Of course, it's Mike's ability to perform on cue and on call that's kept him steadily working for the past couple of decades.
Born on February 3, 1955, Mike spent the bulk of his formative years living in the San Francisco Bay Area. It was while going to college there that Mike found himself drawn into the world of hardcore. He was involved in the local theater scene and was intrigued by the idea of being in a film -- any film. Also, he admits that the sex was a big drawing card -- "I was a college boy who wanted to get laid and experience life," he says now. Mike started out shooting short sex loops by the hundreds, often for no more than $40 a scene. Eventually, his hardy talents were recognized by local porners, and Mike made his feature debut in 1979's 'Tangerine.'
Mike continued racking up the carnal credits, quickly making a name for himself as a man capable of anything on screen, from white-hot sex to deeply felt dramatics. Of course, it's Mike's goofy nerd act that's most familiar to porno fans -- he's been called the Jerry Lewis of porn for his antics. Still, hardcore remained but a sideline job for Mike while he continued studying at S.F. State and honing his acting in a string of art films. It wasn't until 1985 that porn became his primary source of income. He moved down to Southern California in 1991 to pursue his carnal career.
Horner has never married, which he partly attributes to his job. Women find it hard to think of a porno stud who's been in over 1000 videos as "husband material," as he puts it. In fact, for the bulk of his career Mike admits that the sex was the main thing keeping him interested. The chance to take on gorgeous women that he'd never have in 'real' life was just too great to pass up. Now in his forties, Mike is currently trying to get his directing career started again. He spent his own cash on a couple of quite well-received flicks in the mid-90's, 'Tangled' and 'Dreams of Desire.' The industry's drift towards gonzo and away form artistic-type hardcore has made it hard for him to find financing, though.
Still, Horner's guaranteed himself a place in the hardcore firmament no matter what the future holds for him. Some of his best work can be found in 1993's 'Justine,' for which he won Best Actor and Best Couples Sex Scene nods from AVN. Horner also turns in a great performance in 'Body & Soul,' for which he and Ashlyn Gere won a Best Couples Sex Scene award from AVN. In fact, Mike's won more AVN Best Actor Awards (four) than anyone, and is a member of both the XRCO and AVN Halls of Fame. A hardy stud with a penchant for silliness, Mike Horner's one of the most recognizable and talented men to ever appear in hardcore.
Update: Mikes AVN awards for acting number 8 if non-sex acting awards are considered; with 5 best actor, 2 supporting actor awards and one non-sex acting award. While he continues to perform in adult films on occasion and works within the industry in several capacities, he also works in other fields. Acting and sexy girls continue to draw his porn performing interest. He also writes, teach's Yoga, and works in the healthcare industry when not trying to have sex in porn with girls half his age.
