Jean Val Jean is arguably the most accomplished man in porn, and unarguably its most successful crossover male star. Known for his long, flowing hair, his supermodel looks, and his huge cock in the business, Jean has managed to capture fame in mainstream media across the small and silver screen alike. But it was his love and dedication to porn that gave him his first taste of success, and thus, all of the fame he has since enjoyed.
Born in Montlucon, France, Jean - who borrows his stage name from the main protagonist in Victor Hugo's classic novel, Les Miserables - soon moved to Bordeaux to study graphic design. But it was his talent for and fascination with amazing sex that led him to America. Drawn to the adult entertainment industry (and to American girls), Jean decided to attend an AVN convention in California and finally pursue his lifelong dream of becoming a pornstar. He spent the convention pitching his great look and incredible cock to the industry's biggest production and distribution companies. Pressing the flesh with the right people proved to be a winning tactic, and he was soon making waves as the industry's most exciting new talent. He even won an AVN award for Male Foreign Performer of the Year shortly after his arrival.
But Jean Val Jean's star shines just as brightly outside of porn as it does within it. Jean is recognized in the mainstream world as an accomplished celebrity chef, appearing as a contestant on shows like Chef Academy and Cutthroat Kitchen. He has also worked as a personal chef for the Boston Bruins on their private jet. As an actor, Jean has made appearances on such popular TV shows as CSI, The Bold and the Beautiful, and The Last Ship; and in movies like Picture Paris, starring alongside Emmy award-winning actress, Julia Louis-Dreyfus. On top of all that, Jean is also a personal trainer and fitness model, and has appeared in such magazines as Men's Health, Muscle and Fitness, Iron Man Reps, and Muscle N’ Performance. "Passion is everything!" says this former Playgirl model and jazz aficionado; and if his diverse portfolio is any indication, he is indeed passionate about everything.
