Jerry O’Connell stopped by ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live’ yesterday to promote both his upcoming series ‘The Defenders’ with Jim Belushi as well as his new horror flick Piranha 3-D, and he also revealed that he has a nude scene in the new movie.
“I show frontal,” he admitted to the host, “because I play a softcore pornography mogul who videotapes girls at spring break.” Of course, he’s based on Joe Francis, the ‘Girls Gone Wild’ guy, but he’s not allowed to say that anymore after Francis threatened a lawsuit.
“Viggo Mortensen thought that Eastern Promises was a good time to do frontal, Harvey Keitel in Bad Lieutenant, full frontal,” O’Connell joked. “I don’t want to give too much away, but it is in 3D, and there may be some issues with the piranha and my member. Maybe”
He also made sure to stress another very important point – that there may be some shrinkage due to the cold. “We shot this at Lake Havasu, Arizona. The Colorado River – a very cold river – rushes into Lake Havasu. There are ice caps that come from the heavens above! It’s like below freezing! It’s like dry ice freezing, and they go into this Lake Havasu. So when you see me, it’s very cold water!”
