While no one truly knows what the future will bring us, there are some performers that seem to be ready to make an even bigger splash in this coming year, their body of work already solid from what we've seen of 2009. Most of these give the appearance of having that star quality some speak of while others literally exude charm, appeal, and a sexual magnetism that enhance their performances but as with anything else, they have continually sought to improve their game, building up fan bases in relatively short order but spending time gearing up for a better future with the help of chosen PR experts and the expertise of the best in the business to guide their career paths.
Kagney Linn Karter: At first glance, Kagney is another in a long line of drop dead gorgeous blondes with blue eyes and curvy figures most in porn are long acquainted with but she adds the star quality so many of her peers just don't have to break into the big leagues. We are predicting she becomes a bigger name not just for her gonzo work but her exceptionally large role as "Kelly Bundy" in one of the best sitcum titles of the year helped identify her potential to ride the sitcum craze like few others before her. Her notable works of late include: Not Married With Children XXX, Deviance, TMSleaze: A XXX Parody, Point of View Times Two, and Swing Time.
Riley Steele: We reported last year that cute Riley was a notch above your typical contract performer, the young lady showing the world she is capable of handling mainstream chores with large roles in mainstream titles such as the upcoming Piranha 3-D remake. Given that she started off her career in a little flick you may remember called "Pirates II: Stagnetti's Revenge" and has since gone on to score numerous box covers and magazine layouts, you might find her drive to succeed to be the perfect match with her Digital Playground contract. According to those who know her best, she is in it for the long haul and goes beyond the one dimensional starlet of the past so we tip our hat to the likely breakout year she should have in 2010 if the signs to date prove reliable. Here are a few of her standout titles of 2009: Jack's POV #14, Nurses, Teachers, Riley Steele Perfect Pet and Riley Steele Honey.
Angelina Armani: Angelina first came onto our radar when we were introduced during the last year's Adult Entertainment Expo, the gregarious young lady hanging out with Don Houston as the two of them played on the slot machines. They didn't win a million dollars but they did seem to have an affinity for each other, the performer eventually deciding to drop her contract status in order to carve out a more personalized career path with the help of Alexander "Monstar" Raymond, her closest associate in the industry, if you know what I mean. Her gonzo and all sex work have garnered her some acclaim but her true potential is said to lie in the field of sitcum parodies, especially since her success with Will Ryder's sports tribute not long ago. Here are a few of her more notable picks: Not Monday Night Football XXX, Teachers, Casey Parker's School's Out, Angelina Armani Overcome and You & Us.
AJ Bailey: Of all our picks for this year's breakout pack, AJ is the most mysterious on several levels, her intellect (made famous by Howard Stern when he dubbed her "The World's Smartest Pornstar") demonstrated time and again to those that take a moment to converse with her. While hardly a youngster, AJ exudes the confidence of a lady with a bit of experience, her beauty going beyond the traditional blond haired, blue eyed hotty with a lean figure enhanced by all the right curves. Her anecdotes on Xcritic have won her accolades and her twitter account is growing by leaps and bounds but it is a sign of the times that Vivid is paying more attention to the fans by choosing such winners as AJ. Her notable movies of late include AJ Bailey is Tight, The AJ Bailey Experiment, Nymphetamine #3, Women Seeking Women #53 and Lesbian Triangles #16.
