Huff PoAccused Canadian cannibal Luka Magnotta was on the radar of animal rights activists long before he was a murder suspect in the gruesome death of Montreal student Jun Lin and they thought they had a secret weapon to capture him — porn legend Ron Jeremy. The actor, who has appeared in more than 2,000 adult films in a career spanning nearly 40 years, told the Canadian Pressthat he was asked to participate in the sting by members of Rescue Ink, an animal rights group, and former Playboy playmates Sia and Shane Barbi, also known as the Barbi Twins. The proposal came in January, 2011, before Magnotta became a murder suspect. At the time, animal rights groups were after Magnotta because he had allegedly killed kittens and posted videos of the deeds on the Internet — accusations he has denied. The plan, according to Jeremy, was that he would invite Magnotta, a small-time Canadian porn actor, to Los Angeles to supposedly appear in an X-rated flick. Once Magnotta showed up on set, the activists would apprehend him. Although Jeremy has spoken out about animal rights, he thought there were flaws with the plan. “It’s like an episode from some TV show. The [guy] comes to the set with lube in one hand and his schmeckle in the other thinking he has a job, and the cops tackle him to the ground,” he told the Canadian newspaper The National Post. “That’s good for the movies. That doesn’t work in real life.” Joe Panz, Rescue Ink’s co-founder, told the Globe And Mail newspaper that he was upfront about the potential risks to Jeremy. “I don’t lie. Yes, you can get hurt,” said Panz. “I can’t put somebody in harm’s way without telling them, ’Listen, this could go very badly for you.’” Jeremy, whose porn nickname is “The Hedgehog,” was also worried that setting up a fellow adult actor might tarnish his reputation in the industry, Panz said.

Its like the fuckin Departed except instead of the Irish mob and Boston Police we’re talkin about cannibals and male porn stars. 6 of one, half dozen of the other. Thank God for the foresight Ron Jeremy had. Dude knows you don’t just show up with a bottle of lube in one hand and his schmeckle in the other landing a job with the most famous male porn star in the world. Guy probably would have smelled an animal rights sting operation a mile away. You’d have to go deep under cover to earn the Canadian Cannibal’s trust before luring him into the open to be arrested. I mean for this elaborate plan to work Ron Jeremy probably would have had to fuck this guy. He would have had to fuck him and eat cats with him and shit. Before you know it, The Hedgehog would probably be in too deep. He’d be decapitating dudes and eating them in no time. He would have gone full Gay Porn Cannibal.

Thank God he didn’t. Otherwise we’d never get to see a fat hairy dude with a Howitzer fuck on camera ever again.
