Check out this NSFW clip from the end of the Grabby-nominated film Cauke for FREE… there’s a subtle nod to the Nixon era that I’ll explain in a moment.
So… with all the comparisons lately between the current American political situation and Nixon’s Watergate scandal, I thought I’d let you in on a little secret. When I was helping write the script for Cauke for FREE, I had to think of names for the characters, so I threw some fun real-life references in there:
- Alex Graham‘s character, House Speaker Ryan Paul, is obviously a play on current House Speaker Paul Ryan. There’s even a resemblance:
- My character, John Colby, is based on former U.S. Representative Jim Kolbe (R–AZ). Kolbe was outed after supporting the Defense of Marriage Act, but has since publicly supported gay marriage.
- Jason Vario plays Special Agent Bo Hunter, Speaker Paul’s Secret Service detail. In real life, Paul Ryan’s Secret Service codename is “Bowhunter” because he likes to hunt deer using a bow and arrow.
- And finally… at the very end of the film — the video I posted above — there’s a cameo by TitanMen exclusive Nick Prescott who identifies himself as “Nick” in a message to former Senator Mike Cauke (fellow exclusive Matthew Bosch). Nick, in this case, actually refers to the character’s name, Nick Felt. In the first of the Cauke films, Cauke for President, Nick Felt blew the whistle on Sen. Cauke’s hypocritical gay sex hookups… much like how FBI Deputy Director Mark Felt blew the whistle on President Nixon during the Watergate scandal. See what I did there?
