Gerard Damiano was a fascinating guy. The director of Deep Throat and other FSR favorites – Naked Goddess, Splendor in the Ass, and The Devil in Miss Jones – warrants a bio film of his own. Damiano, who directed under the name Jerry Damiano, joined the Navy at the age of 17, worked as a hairdresser, and then turned to making pornography. Needless to say, he had a diverse body of work. We only see a little of the character in the Linda Lovelace bio film Lovelace, but actor Hank Azaria assures that we see an accurate portrayal of the purveyor of porn. Azaria and his scenes with Bobby Cannavale almost make for a movie of its own, bringing levity to some tough material. Naturally it makes for a great double feature with The Smurfs 2 — the other movie currently in theaters that features Azaria. We spoke with him about the similarities between his turn as porno king and mole-bearing wizard Gargamel.
