Simon Rex's Main TV Roles
Main Movie Roles
Guest TV Roles[none found]
Actor Simon Rex had an auspicious entrance into the world of entertainment when he appeared in some hard-core pornographic solo scenes in a series of straight-to-video gay porn releases. Though he initially found mainstream fame as an MTV VJ, his naughty past came back to haunt him and cost him that job. A series of television flops followed, speckled occasionally with a supporting role in films. Some mainstream credibility returned after a stint on "Felicity" (1998) and eventually an acclaimed comedic turn as a spoof-on-Eminem rapper in Scary Movie 3 (2003), but Rex has never been able to escape his reputation as a pretty face with a checkered history in adult entertainment.
