Here’s a list of historic moments that have taken place at the L.A. Memorial Coliseum: The 1932 and 1984 Summer Olympics, John F. Kennedy accepts the Democratic nomination for president, Pope John Paul II celebrates mass, and Reggie Bush did a bunch of cool things he supposedly wasn’t eligible to do.
Now, after a report by the L.A. Times on Wednesday, we can add one more thing to that list: the filming of “The Gangbang Girl #32,” the hardcore adult film that shot 40-minutes worth of action on the hallowed field of the Coliseum over 10 years ago. Use your imagination to figure out what the film’s plot was about.
“I was just in awe that we were at the Coliseum,” said Mr. Marcus (not to be confused with Marcus Jordan), one of the film’s many, many stars. “I’ve made movies for about 20 years and I’ve done a lot of things, but that one really stands out.… I mean, who gets to have sex on the Coliseum floor?”
But this is potentially a big deal and not the type of big deal that has to do with winning AVN awards. Naturally, some uptight folks aren’t going to be as proud as Mr. Marcus and probably will be up in arms over the fact that a seedy porno film was able to shoot in a taxpayer-owned stadium that was built as a memorial to World War I veterans and also happens to be a National Historic Landmark.
Details pertaining to how exactly the film crew was able to get access to shoot at the stadium, no less turning on the its field lights, are still unclear, according the Times’ report. But sources tell the paper that the person who has the authority to give such clearance is likely a high-ranking manager of the facility. The Coliseum’s general manager at the time was Patrick Lynch, who resigned in 2011 in advance of being brought up on embezzlement charges. Lynch’s attorney, Tony Capozzola, spoke on his behalf, and he clearly isn’t a fan of “Gangbang Girl #32.”
“That’s disgusting,” Capozzola told the Times. “He would never allow that.”
Right. The guy who allegedly pocketed $385,000 in a separate sketchy side deal would never let a gangbang be shot on the grounds of the stadium he runs and probably pocket even more under-the-table cash for it. Never. But we’re not here to point fingers. And we’re guessing Lynch has more pertinent things to worry about than a chick getting tag-teamed by “a dozen or so” dudes while being filmed.
