Adult Film Star Explains How And Why He Was In 'Innocence Of Muslims'

TimdaxWatching Innocence of Muslims, the bigoted, insensitive video that sparked anti-American protests in Libya, Egypt and Yemen, some viewers recognized an instantly recognizable actor named Tim Dax from his work in gay adult films.

This had many wondering why Dax would involve himself in such an obviously hateful project. The short answer: the film's directors kept the actors in the dark about the movie's actual message. The longer answer, sent in an email to Joe.My.God, is here, unedited:

i can tell you i auditioned for a movie called Desert Storm that was about Ancient Warriors. My character was called Sampson on the paper with a few lines I got each day upon arriving on set. We never saw a full script or any lines after the day we shot them. Many questions were asked regarding absurdity of lines and situations.

Sam the producer who I believed to be, but not certain as Egyptian. His reply would always to work with what we were given as he wrote the script. The clip that I saw part of today for the first time is questionable as to being my voice. The voice over work is dubious at best. a week and a half of work, 75 bucks a day & lunch. ; ) Can't tell you anymore than that other than I'm am very much NOT anti muslim.

one world one love. Tim.

It makes sense that the directors would keep the script to themselves. Wouldn't want anyone spoiling their intentionally incendiary plans!

  1. Plus, it seems that the maker of this film is a Coptic Christian and deceiving the actors was a way to make a film they deliberately intended to cause riots in the Middle East and political turmoil in the US. To me that falls under the general heading of terrorism.

    As a gay atheist I'm not going to fall into the trap of defending a religion, the adherents of which not only oppose my rights but condemn me. Just like I'm not going to defend Christians when they have a much more directly harmful influence on my life in the US.

    That said, PURELY from a civil rights standpoint, our Constitution guarantees Freedom of Religion and that includes Islam, assuming its practitioners are not committing crimes. Not every Muslim is violent, in fact most aren't, and not all hate gay people, oppress women, etc. Either we have Freedom of Religion or we don't, it's not just Freedom of Christianity, but if the Christian Right wants to start forbidding religious expression they'd better be ready for the consequences, because my FIRST goal after that is to have THEIR freedom to express their religion-based hateful views curtailed. So they should be careful what they wish for- they might just get it.

  2. How nice of you guys to want me to kill myself. So much for you liberal tolerance. It's ok. My family wants me dead, too. Not just because I'm a pathetic excuse for a gay man but my dad says I'm the worst lay he's ever had, and he regularly sodomizes corpses.

  3. $75 a day? Is he kidding? I did extra acting 12 years ago and got way more than that.

    He's either LYING or really dumb.

  4. But I do agree that an actor doesn't always get the full script of the movie or TV show.

  6. A movie is created in the editing room - it really doesn't matter what the actors actually do- in this digital world words and situations can easily be changed. And I agree that this movie can not be used an excuse to murder people.

  7. If I was an actor in the movie I'd be considering a class action lawsuit as being in the movie may put a target on thier back.

  8. ALL religions should be able to be discussed and ridiculed. If we reserve special treatment for one religion over another that's when we get problems. If we censor one group of people over another we also get problems - look at how Hitler rose to power.

    These idiots need to grow up. If their faith is strong then movies, cartoons etc should not threaten them.

  9. Regarding "Muslims adherents have created an environment where making a film critical of Islam is a life-threatening thing to do.": It's a small number of Muslim extremists who are the problem, and Islam is not unique in that regard. Don't forget that Christian extremists have made performing abortions a life-threatening thing to do, and Jewish extremists have made wearing funky clothing a life threatening thing to do (watch one of the scenes of Bruno in Jerusalem if you don't believe that one).

  10. As a reply to FUNME's comment, "$75 a day? Is he kidding?" ... he is probably not kidding. I saw the short version on youtube, just to see what the ruckus was about. The acting is so bad that at $75 per day, those guys were being overpaid. If they are going to shoot anyone, they should start with the director and makeup artist (those fake beards were terrible). It's like the line from the original version of "To be or not to be", where Sig Rumann (playing a Nazi colonel) tells Jack Benny (playing a ham Polish actor), "Oh yes, I saw him before the war. What he did to Shakespeare, we are doing to Poland."

  11. At 75 bucks a day, it makes him a REALLY cheap whore.

  12. I'm inclined to believe Tim Dax is innocent. Another actress in this film, interviewed as "Cynthia" on local news corroborated his story.

    The history of the First Amendment may not give a similar pass to the producer of this dreck. Inciting to riot is not protected speech, and there seems to be enough evidence of intent to do just that to indict the producer.

  13. when this was just a poorly made video by a nutty christian group it was bad enough, but now the probable story of this being made to deliberately stir up chaos in the middle east so that less savory fundamentalist muslim groups can seize power is frankly chilling.... remember the Reichstag

  14. Mr. Donald
    forget about the film,mohammed,the muslims ...etc
    what If your next door neighbor burns your newspaper
    or makes a joke about your father or draws a cartoon of your mother having sex with someone ?
    doing the same thing, over and over again
    tell me What Will Be Your Reaction?
    the muslims are thousand miles away ,why the americans and only the americans (hollywood) who always make funny movies about other nations and especially muslims & arabs
    no one single movie thru history ever made
    by muslims to insult Jesus Christ or the
    american people ... why ? think about that..!!

  17. Wow. You queens really can't stand it when one of your own disagrees with the mob can you. Stick your fingers in your ears and shout rhubarb. You ain't homosexuals, your homogenized.

  18. Do we make such a big deal out of anti-christian movies? Leftists liberal and their willingness to defend Islam disgusts me. Islam is as disgusting as christianity, if not worse. The rights we enjoy as gay men and women were gained by fighting religion in the public sphere. Homosexuality is still forbidden in EVERY muslim countries. If you start censuring movies that mock religions, don't be surprise if we go back to the dark ages.
