For Immediate Release | Wicked Pictures Releases Brad Armstrong’s 'The J.O.B.' Starring jessica drake & Asa Akira

LOS ANGELES, CA – (JUNE 10, 2016) – Wicked Pictures is pleased to announce award winning filmmaker Brad Armstrong’s feature release The J.O.B. is now in stores. Starring Wicked Girls jessica drake and Asa Akira, the director’s innovative project blurs the line between fantasy and reality by using Akira’s acclaimed book Insatiable: Porn—A Love Story – famously dubbed “part memoir, part diary, and part dirty haiku” by the press – as the springboard for a sophisticated ‘meta-porn’ drama set amidst the fast-paced world of adult filmmaking. As Armstrong’s exploration of “Art Imitating Life” begins, Zoe (drake) is a journalist assigned to do a story on Asa Akira, a world famous pornstar who’s written a book that’s receiving mainstream press interest. Zoe is understandably nervous about what the next few days have in store for her, but before long she has Asa revealing her deepest secrets for all the world to see. As the interview continues it becomes a game of cat and mouse with Zoe trying to get her story, and Asa teasing and taunting her, trying to lure the straight-laced reporter into her web and into “the life.” The sexual tension is undeniable and Zoe quickly learns there’s a fine line between reporting the story and becoming the story. For her part, Asa is characteristically candid when discussing the new release, which deconstructs the acts of creating and performing in erotic films. "In a way, shooting The J.O.B. was the most naked I’ve ever felt on a set. Not only do I play myself in this movie, but Brad also incorporated a lot of my book into the script. It was the easiest script I’ve ever had to memorize, because my character spoke exactly like me – all of her dialogue was stuff I would normally be saying. My favorite scene is definitely the ten-person-orgy. We haven’t done a big orgy like that since Aftermath, and I certainly hadn’t forgotten how much I enjoy them.” Relating to the new project’s ‘meta-movie’ qualities is a challenge eagerly accepted by AVN Mainstream Star of the Year jessica drake. “Brad Armstrong has once again used his awesome screenwriting ability to create roles that are perfectly suited to all of us - Asa is herself in the movie, and I channeled my inner ‘awkward girl’ from school to play Zoe, and the other players are equally authentic in their portrayals, from the ‘smarmy’ director to the enthusiastic new starlet and everyone in between. It’s a great cast!” The movie’s other ladies include Adriana Chechik, Luna Star, Katie Morgan, Mia Li and Teanna Trump. In addition to Armstrong, the male cast is comprised of Ryan Driller, Tommy Gunn, Alex Jones, Eric Masterson, Damon Dice, Alec Knight and, in his Wicked feature debut, fan favorite Keiran Lee. “Every sex scene was hot,” drake says of the movie’s many hardcore sequences. “My favorites would be my scene with Asa – who was supposed to be dominating me, but the tables somehow got turned. Next, I loved the the voyeur / masturbation / blowjob scene on an airline flight, which was part of the ‘movie within our movie,’ and my scene with Eric Masterson. We ended with an awesome orgy. No Armstrong movie is complete without a signature orgy!” Although his witty and erotic 165 minute movie is packed with seven sex scenes, three additional bonus scenes and timely references to everything from the San Fernando Valley gas leak to the 2016 Presidential Race, Armstrong credits the Wicked Girls with keeping the action grounded and relatable. “These two superstars shine in this movie,” he enthuses. “Their understated, natural performances make you believe every word, and make you feel like you’re right there inside the story with them. And the orgy really is one of the most exciting scenes I’ve ever shot. The raw sexual energy filled the room and no one involved wanted it to be over. Viewers are really gonna love it.” The J.O.B. is now in stores. For Domestic Sales please contact Bonnie Kail at 800-737-7838 or email bonnie@wickedpictures.com.
