Now for a curious, if not unexpected tidbit of news – evidently porn star extraordinaire, James Deen, has found himself on the short list for NASA’s space-tourist program. Both his parents are engineers, one of which worked at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory, hence that connection.

“I am on a list to go into space. My dad put me on it. He thinks I'll be one of the first civilians to go into space... I don't think it'll happen, because I smoke and I'm not that physically fit, but it's kind of cool," Deen explained.

However, despite the academic pedigree that his mother and father possess, computer electronic engineer and mechanical engineer, respectively, Deen maintains that his folks have always been supportive of various endeavors.

"My parents have always been supportive. They learned quickly that I was going to do whatever I wanted to do. When I started making adult films, their main concerns were health and safety. I assured them that working in porn is like working at McDonald's or at a bank... It's a job," Deen revealed Playboy.

Most recently, Deen can be seen Paul Schrader’s The Canyons, alongside Lindsay Lohan.
